Equifax Inc. (NYSE: EFX) has named Sid Singh president of United States Information Solutions (USIS), replacing Paulino do Rego Barros Jr.

An established and recognized authority in financial technology, Singh joins Equifax from Global Payments Inc., where he served as group president of Integrated Solutions & Vertical Markets. In his new role with Equifax, based at the company’s Atlanta headquarters and reporting directly to the CEO, Singh will be responsible for leading the company’s largest business unit. USIS leverages unique data assets, technology, analytics, and expertise to create unparalleled insights to help businesses and consumers make more informed financial decisions.

“Sid is a dynamic and collaborative growth leader, bringing not only proven global leadership experience guiding teams and growing revenue to Equifax, but also a critical understanding of the use of unique data, high-volume transaction processing, and software and platform development,” said Mark Begor, CEO of Equifax. “Additionally, his fresh perspective; focus on growth and customers; deep operational, technical, and payments expertise; and commitment to our customer-centric approach will deliver value for all of our stakeholders as we pioneer new solutions for customers, continue to enhance and optimize our operations for the future, and execute on our robust growth strategy.”

Barros will spend the next several months working with Singh in his transition to Equifax and the USIS business. Moving forward, Barros will provide leadership support for strategy, business development, and global partnerships for the broader enterprise.

“Paulino has done a great job in 2018 building our U.S. customer relationships and leading our USIS business back to a growth mode. Building on the success of this effort, Paulino and I will work closely with Sid to ensure a clear, effective transition of the USIS leadership role,” added Begor.

Joining Global Payments in 2006, Singh was instrumental in developing the technology and software-led business strategies that helped transform the company into a highly differentiated industry leader, and also led the acquisition and integration of multiple businesses.
