TransUnion UK CEO Satty Saha named amongst most influential figures in data and analytics

Satrajit “Satty” Saha, our CEO, has been named as one of the most influential practitioners in the data and analytics industry, according to experts at DataIQ.

The annual list recognises those who have a genuine impact on the way data and analytics are deployed by businesses and is testament to the pivotal role that data now plays in powering business today.

Satty, who was appointed CEO of TransUnion UK in January, after joining the UK business in 2018 as chief commercial officer –  following a move from TransUnion CIBIL, India – has played a major part in aligning the UK operations with TransUnion’s successful global model.

He has spoken of his plans to introduce a number of new products to the UK market this year to provide businesses with an even greater level of data and insight to help them succeed, whilst empowering consumers to take control of their own data with schemes like Open Banking.

Speaking of the accolade Satty Saha said: “It’s a privilege to be recognised amongst my peers and I’m really excited about the journey ahead for TransUnion here in the UK as we establish the full extent of our global offering. 

“In particular, I’m looking forward to introducing TrueVision, our trended credit data product, to the market. This enables us to apply our innovative analytical techniques to identify consumer behaviours not previously possible and can improve lender and customer outcomes through more precise insights. It’s been a big success for us in other markets globally and we’re confident it will have a similar impact here.”

David Reed, strategy director at Data IQ added: “Post-GDPR, privacy is now business-as-usual while organisations are looking to drive out value from their investments into new data practices. In 2019, the focus is now on business transformation and datafication, especially in sectors which have struggled with legacy issues amid heightened competition and digital disruption.”
