Business Model:

Founded in 1982 by John Johnson, Northland Group provides business process outsourcing services focused on debt collection services for national credit grantors, debt buyers, and student loan lenders and servicers. It is identified as a leader in “late stage” collections.

In 2008, Northland’s founder Johnson sold the company to private equity firm Mason Wells. Johnson gained notice for buying a $240,000 “executive protection dog.”

In 2014, Northland acquired debt collection business Accounts Receivable Management, Inc.
