Our Founders

Mr. and Mrs. Doane started Sunrise Credit Services Inc. in October 1974. Mr. Doane began his career with the W.T. Grant Company in the 1950’s and worked his way up in the organization through his tenure to the eventual title of National Credit Director with a responsibility of over 6000 employees throughout the United States. In 1974, along with his wife June Doane, they founded Sunrise Credit Services, Inc. in Massapequa NY.

Mrs. Doane, with an accounting and bookkeeping degree and background, acted as the companies Secretary/Treasurer until her unfortunate passing in 2013. Through the years, the company has grown to be one of the leading Accounts Receivable Management Companies in the United States. Mr. Doane was CEO/President throughout its growth. His day to day management and leadership developed many valued current staff and client relationships. Today, he acts as Board Chairmen of Sunrise Credit Services, Inc.

While he no longer has any day to day responsibilities, he is still involved, adding his advice and counsel to the current Executives, Managers, and Staff. Currently, his daughter, Diane Doane is the CEO and his son, Richard G. Doane is the President of Sunrise Credit Services, Inc. Sunrise, while now a 600 plus employee organization, is still a privately held company that has maintained its growth, success and leadership from the lessons learned from its founders.

Our Background

Sunrise Credit Services, Inc. has been incorporated in the State of New York since 1975. We offer a wide range of credit & accounts receivables management services to credit grantors from coast to coast. SCS employs over 500 representatives and staff. Our growth has been due to our "client comes first" philosophy, and our concentration on: Quality Client Services, Controlled Growth, Cutting Edge Technology and a clear understanding of the entire credit and account receivables process.

Sunrise Credit Services, Inc. is located in a 40,000 square foot facility in Farmingdale NY. This single centralized office allows us to maintain a level of internal control that simply cannot be achieved by larger "branch office" operations. Because a centralized operation is more cost-effective, we are able to invest a greater portion of our revenues back into the account receivable process. The result is better support, better training, more hands on management, and better account receivable tools.

This is an attempt to collect a debt. Any information obtained will be used for that purpose. This communication is from a debt collector.
