Experian promotes Black to top job in Australia, NZ

Australian credit bureau services provider Experian has announced the promotion of 15-year company veteran Andrew Black to managing director of Australia and New Zealand.

Black replaces Suzanne Steele who is leaving Experian to take up an appointment as Adobe managing director for Australia and New Zealand.

Black will lead Experian’s credit services, decision analytics, data quality and targeting teams across the company’s Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland offices.

He will also remain as the acting managing director of the Experian ANZ Data Quality and Targeting teams in the interim. Poli Konstantinidis continues as managing director, credit services and decision analytics ANZ.

Ben Elliott, chief executive of the Asia Pacific region at Experian, said Black was a clear choice to succeed Steele because of his track record of leading consistently successful teams with high-performing cultures that foster innovation.

“Andrew’s breadth of industry experience, dynamic leadership capabilities and focus on team performance will ensure the continued delivery of our mission to help our customers make sense of data in powerful new ways that create opportunities for consumers, businesses and society as a whole.

“When I look at the strength of the team that Andrew has developed and the success of our Data Quality and Targeting business in Australia and New Zealand, I am confident that we are well positioned for strong future growth.

“With a combined total of over 15 years of service, Andrew is an outstanding example of career progression at Experian.”

Black said his goal was to lead greater integration of Experian’s data quality, targeting, credit services and decision analytics teams to empower more clients in all sectors to make “smarter data-led decisions”.

“One of Experian’s unique capabilities is to tackle multiple, large, poor-quality and disparate data sources, pulling them together to enable an accurate, integrated single customer view over multiple platforms that can be utilised to deliver highly targeted cross-channel opportunities and insights.” Black said.
