Creditinfo Group, the credit bureau, today announced it has appointed Bertrand de Leusse as Chief Financial Officer (CFO). De Leusse joins Creditinfo to support the transformation of its financial infrastructure from a founder company to an established global player in the credit bureau space.
He joins from his most recent role as CFO at Telecommunications company, Sipartech and has a wealth of experience having previously worked at IBM, CGI and Sodifrance.
De Leusse’s appointment comes at a crucial time for the company. Creditinfo has experienced significant growth in recent years, especially in emerging markets, where alternative data is key to unlocking lending opportunities for more of the population. In his new role, de Leusse’s role will focus on strengthening Creditinfo’s proposition during a turbulent economic period where lending will be crucial to the recovery of countries, businesses and individuals alike.
Bertrand de Leusse, CFO at Creditinfo, said: “It is an exciting opportunity to really support the business to maximise profitability and support the focus for growth. In addition to the professional challenge, it is very satisfying to know that what we do as an organisation enables greater access to finance and supports economic growth in the markets that we work in.”
