About

Alacrity Has a Proven 35-Year Track Record

Alacrity Collections Corporation’s team is the primary reason why Alacrity is the top agency in Maryland. Founded in 1982 by Susan K. Hayes, Alacrity Collections has grown to be one of the largest and most successful regional collection agencies in the mid-Atlantic states. A five-time Governor appointee to the Maryland Collection Agency Licensing Board, Susan built Alacrity with a keen focus on compliance and fair debt collection practices from the start.

Does your collections agency receive testimonials like this?

“…I also want to say thank you to the Alacrity team for being patient with me in handling this account and letting me pay it off with monthly payments. I greatly appreciate that and the professionalism of the staff. Most of the time collection specialists are rude and judgmental. They see that a person has been sent to collections and automatically think they are deadbeats or people who do not want to pay their bills. It won’t be long before my debt is paid off and I will be out of your system! Yaaaayyyy!!! Thanks again!”
