Monday, 15 January 2018
Equifax, a global information solutions provider, welcomed Hilary Benn, MP for Leeds Central, to its Leeds office in Wellington Place on Friday, 12 January 2018. The visit was an opportunity for him to meet staff from across the Equifax team and learn more about the business, its growth plans, and investment in new technology. 

Leeds has risen to become one of the key centres for financial services in the UK and Mr Benn is an active supporter of the city’s businesses. Mr Benn was provided a tour around the office, newly opened in May 2016. The office accommodates 200 staff responsible for business analytics, insights and services for clients across the UK, as well as central functions such as IT, human resources and finance. Since opening the office, the business has recruited 78 new hires and plans to expand further in early 2018.

Patricio Remon, President for Europe at Equifax Ltd., said: “Wellington Place is a fantastic location for our Leeds team and we’re very pleased to have welcomed Mr Benn to the office. Leeds is a major focus for our UK recruitment and expansion, demonstrated by the high level talent we’ve added to our workforce in recent months. As an ambassador for local businesses, it was a great opportunity to share our goals and culture with Mr Benn, and demonstrate our cutting-edge approach to data analytics and insights during the tour of our site.”

Hilary Benn, Member of Parliament for Leeds Central, said: “Leeds is the UK’s second largest centre for financial services and provides businesses with the opportunity to flourish in a growing hub of innovation with a highly skilled workforce. I am delighted to have visited the Equifax Leeds office, to learn more about the organisations growing presence in the region and the significant contribution it is making to the city’s ambitions to be the UK data city.”
