TKB’s story is the basis of our success. From the moment the company was founded, we have continued to develop. To achieve improvements for our clients. Day in, day out.


Our roots

In 1988, Tom Pasterkamp started the debt collection agency Trust Krediet Beheer (TKB – Trust Credit Management) from his home in the ‘Old West’ district of Amsterdam. Without mobile telephones or laptops, but equipped with his distinctive and convincing vision on credit management, he laid the foundation for TKB.
Doing business in an honest and consistent manner was always a given for Tom. Keep your promises. And make sure that you make a difference as a person.

Own course

In 2010, Tom Pasterkamp handed over the daily management to Rutger van Oosten. Together with the management team, Rutger accompanies all TKB-employees in the further process of permanent development and innovation. TKB has now grown into a professional credit management organisation, employing almost 300 people. An organisation that owes its success to the ‘human factor’ and its hands-on attitude. Still following its own course, with the changing needs of the clients as the guiding principle.
