Global information and insights provider TransUnion has reportedly appointed Amanda Rendle to its UK board as a non-executive director.
Rendle brings considerable experience in marketing and communications spanning four decades, with extensive expertise in financial services.
Rendle has previously led an established customer engagement program at major multinational bank HSBC, where she had been working as global head of marketing for commercial banking, and global banking and markets.
She also supported Masthaven in its transition from serving as a specialist lender to bank and has advised new tech-based companies across finance and marketing on client marketing strategies.
Amanda Rendle, commenting on her appointment as non-executive director at TransUnion in the UK, stated:
“I’m excited about utilizing my expertise to support TransUnion’s customers and the consumers they serve. The role of data and insights is going to be pivotal as businesses aim to assist consumers through the ongoing challenges they face as a result of the pandemic and the rising cost of living. I look forward to working with the wider leadership team as we continue to optimise processes to deliver the best results.”
Rendle’s portfolio reportedly includes current non-executive director roles for Tesco Bank, Homeserve Membership UK and the Government Communications Services, while she had previously served as a non-executive director for the British Business Bank, The Royal Mint and Countrywide.
Satrajit “Satty” Saha, CEO of TransUnion in the UK remarked:
“We’re so pleased to be welcoming Amanda to our UK board. With vast experience in the financial services sector, she is passionate about the voice of the customer and embedding insights into business processes to support informed decisions and drive the best outcomes. Her skills and know-how will be a great asset as we move forward with our strategic long-term growth plans.”
As covered last year, Prove, which offers an innovative way of proving identity by requiring only a phone number, revealed that it had integrated TransUnion’s TruValidate identity verification solution into its product offering so that it can offer a new, instant, digital identity service in Hong Kong.
The launch of the new digital identity product into this new market is part of Prove’s ongoing business expansion – which includes its Phone Identity Network. The company reports that its ID verification solutions are being offered in 60 different countries.
Prove’s latest solution should allow companies with an international presence to further extend their digital KYC, ID verification, and authentication services to Hong Kong residents. With such a high level of mobile phone penetration, the city will be a strategic addition to Prove’s Phone Identity Network, allowing customers to engage with an intuitive and more secure ID verification solution.
