Callcredit Announces Executive Appointments
Callcredit Information Group continues to grow rapidly in the UK in all sectors. A key focus for the business moving forwards is to look to extend this growth internationally and as a direct consequence a dedicated team focused on international expansion has been established.
After four years as Divisional MD, repositioning Callcredit’s Marketing Solutions Division, Chris Savage will move into a new role as MD for International and Corporate Development. Chris will be responsible for developing services internationally both organically and through strategic acquisition.
The new team, consisting of experienced individuals drawn from across the Group, have already begun to evaluate opportunities in a number of markets with the objective of significantly increasing the amount of Group revenue and profit generated from outside the UK.
As a result of this change Chris McDonald, currently MD Data Solutions has been appointed to the role of Divisional MD, Marketing Solutions. Chris was the founder of the highly successful Trading Floor business which was acquired by Callcredit in January 2011 and has continued to flourish and expand as part of the wider group. He has played a significant role alongside Chris Savage, as the Marketing Solutions division has evolved to become the leading provider of digital marketing, consumer data and databases in the UK.
John McAndrew, Chief Executive Callcredit Information Group commented, “Whilst growing our UK business remains a key priority and will continue to be our main focus we have made no secret of the fact that it has always been our intention to grow the business internationally. Following the recent change of ownership the time is now right to intensify our efforts by establishing a dedicated team focused on our international expansion plans”.
“These two important strategic appointments will ensure that as a business we are ideally placed to maximise growth opportunities both here in the UK and internationally. We are looking to position Callcredit as a leading provider of innovation and insight on a global stage”.
