Experian has been named by Forbes magazine as one of the ‘World’s Most Innovative Companies’. The global information services company is the only company of its kind to be included in Forbes’ exclusive innovation league for 2014.
Brian Cassin, CEO, Experian, said: “Science and innovation are part of Experian’s DNA and it is a tremendous achievement to be recognised by Forbes as one of the world’s most innovative companies. It is an achievement only made possible by the talent and entrepreneurial spirit of the 16,000 people who work at Experian. Together, we are proud to be pioneering new ways to help people and organisations to better protect, manage and unlock the value within their data.”
Experian was ranked 97th by Forbes, alongside a host of global brands from a range of industries. The world’s most innovative companies were united by one factor at the heart of Forbes’ methodology: ‘investors’ ability to identify firms they expect to be innovative now and in the future’. This ‘Innovation Premium’, alongside other factors, determines whether a company is included in Forbes’ exclusive list.
