Since its inception in February 2014, AICDP has worked closely with VF Northern Europe Ltd; Chris Snelson, Director of Credit, being one of our founder members. Chris manages a large (130+ FTE’s) based in Calverton near Nottingham which is one of the most sophisticated International Credit & Risk Management centres in Europe.

During the last 4 years, The Centre has participated in every AICDP initiative and Chris has been a significant supporter of the development of AICDP. In the current year, we are taking our engagement to the next level, and as of 1st January 2018, VF has become our first Corporate member and are embarking upon our International QMark programme.

This will assist us as a flagship site as AICDP continues to grow its membership numbers and categories of membership. AICDP are delighted with this development and this view is shared by Chris.

Chris Snelson said “Innovation and advancement is something we aim to achieve daily and by partnering with the AICDP on the QMark programme, this enables the team to enhance its learning and development in this area. The AICDP culture pushes the boundaries of the Credit profession and this is one of the attributes we demand in our partners.”

Bill Dunlop, AICDP President added “having worked with Chris and the team for 8 years, it has been most gratifying to see the group develop in all aspects of their professional endeavour. Whilst producing world-class KPI’s the pursuit of excellence never ceases within their operation, and innovation is demanded both internally and from their business partners and service providers.
