infoUSA announced that it is changing its name to infoGROUP, effective June 1. According to a press release, the company feels the new name better represents the organization’s expanding global presence and long-term business strategy.

The company notes that many acquisitions, such as its Opinion Research buy, have effectively solidified infoUSA as a global company and prompted an expansion of infoGROUP’s research and database functions.  infoGROUP, which is headquartered in Omaha, Neb., has offices in Canada, the U.K., Australia, India, Singapore, Hong Kong and Shanghai. The company plans to move into New Zealand and Ireland, as well as expand its current operations in Australia and other regions.  Source: Asian Press Coverage
