Mary Beghin - Director
Mary is no stranger to the area of Debt Collection in Jersey, with over thirty years experience gained from working in the accounts departments at various businesses and lawyers firms but also having previously owned and run her own very successful company specialising in debt recovery and mediation.
"The decision to sell is one that I will regret but at the time it was the right thing for me to do for personal reasons. I really enjoyed working closely with my Clients and nothing would give the greatest pleasure than being able to send them a cheque at the end of the month, moreover, as I have always believed that the client shouldn't have to pay Commission to recover their debt. The use of Debt Collection, in Jersey, for the majority of clients is the last resort, they have tried to get their money back but without any success. What is important is having the knowledge that the company you use to recover your outstanding debts will do as they say, for example a seven day demand letter is just that, 7 days, and then proceedings will be instigated.
I have always been proud of the way that I operated my previous business but I am so excited by SkyFall Collections Limited, I have learnt by experience and working with Louis who brings a wealth of experience will mean that SkyFall will be far better and stronger than our Competitor's and this will benefit our Clients and enable us to provide proactive Debt Collection in Jersey"
Mary is a fully Accredited Mediator having trained and qualified with the Regent's College London.
