About Us

Our Team

A Company with an Attitude... the Right Kind of Attitude.

We believe our methodology is the most powerful in the business. Here’s why. First, our method is the best. Our software has the muscle to grind its way through data like no other. Second, our people are even better. Our management team brings years of experience in the practice of auditing, technical expertise, process implementation, financial management, and operational control. They know life’s too short to not always deliver the most value to the client. They’re smart. They’re good listeners. They’re respectful. They’re easy to talk to. And they’re driven to delight clients. So it won’t surprise you to learn that the rest of the team at AP Recovery is made up of people much like them. Makes sense, doesn’t it?

Helping Businesses do Business Better.

We want what you want…better business. That’s why we survey our clients regularly to find out what matters. We don’t stop there, we host customer round tables to involve our clients in developing solutions. Solutions that matter to you.
