Equifax Announces Senior Leadership Changes
Leverages Internal Executive Talent to Continue to Deliver Unparalleled Value to Customers, Consumers & Shareholders
AUSTRALIA/NEW ZEALAND, June 6, 2017 – Equifax Inc. (NYSE: EFX), a global information solutions company, today announced the realignment of some of its key senior leadership roles. The repositioning of its executive bench is in line with the Company’s strategy of empowering its management team to take on broader responsibilities that bring new insights to its business units and centers of excellence.
- Nerida Caesar, currently the Managing Director of Equifax Australia & New Zealand, will transition to an advisory role through early 2018 to facilitate the seamless realignment of the Asia-Pacific region. Caesar was instrumental in ensuring the successful integration of Veda, the largest acquisition in Equifax history, and was a key partner to help establish the Company’s management disciplines and new product innovation program in these markets.
- Paulino Barros, currently the President of the United States Information Solutions (USIS) business unit, will now lead the Equifax Asia-Pacific business. Prior to his USIS role, Barros led the Company’s International unit with responsibility for Latin America, Europe, and Canada, and also led expansion efforts into other countries. Barros will remain an active member of the Equifax senior leadership team.
All changes will be effective July 1.
“Our tremendous growth is the result of both accelerating business strategies to maximize the value of our position in the market, and tapping into our best talent to lead with decisiveness and strength,” said Equifax Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Richard F. Smith. “Paulino’s business acumen will bring a wealth of knowledge to his role so we can continue leveraging our competitive advantage on a global scale. We thank Nerida – the driving force behind Veda’s creation and growth, and a key partner and contributor during the acquisition – for her continued partnership in the region.”
