PRA Group will be one of Alamance’s largest employers

PRA Group is one of the largest debt buyers in the United States, and when it opens a new call center in Burlington during first quarter 2018, it will become one of the largest employers in Alamance County.

When the news broke last week that the company, formerly known as Portfolio Recovery Associates, would bring more than 500 jobs to Holly Hill Mall and Business Center, local officials touted the announcement as a boon for Alamance County.
