Our Story
Smarter Process. Higher Recovery.
Interstate Credit Control, Inc. was created in 1992 by Paul Mikkelson. In 2015, Paul's son, Lee, took over ownership of the company and rebranded it into Negotium as a DBA. 

The first thing Lee did was look for new management. In October of 2015, Lee hired Josh to oversee all aspects of the business and build Negotium into the best collections solution in the industry.

Josh, having recently received his MBA, moved from Ohio to take on the project. Josh oversaw the entire rebranding process, bringing Negotium into the 21st century by updating all aspects of the business. Phones, software, and payment systems were all upgraded to create the best possible solution. Negotium has already seen substantial growth and will continue to adapt to the ever-changing world we live in to provide the most state-of-the-art debt recovery solution in the industry.
