Collectius was founded by Gustav A. Eriksson and Ivar Björklund.

Gustav and Ivar relocated to Shanghai to start the company, research the Asian debt collection industry, learn, listen, and strategise.
The strategy becomes actionable with the acquisition of Milliken & Craig, a Singaporean / Malaysian debt collection company with over 20-years of experience in Southeast Asia.
