Experian Wins ‘Most Admired’ Company at Management Today Awards

London, 2 December 2016 – Experian, the world’s leading information services company, has won the Business Support Services category at Management Today’s highly regarded Britain’s Most Admired Companies (BMAC) awards held last night in Central London. Experian was also placed in the top ten companies overall, coming in 10 out of 241 companies listed in the BMAC league.

Matthew Gwyther, Editor, Management Today, said: “The BMAC awards uniquely recognise and celebrate companies that have won the respect of their peers and competitors. Experian’s success illustrates that it is a highly trusted and respected company, not only in the business support services sector but more broadly within the UK business community.”

Brian Cassin, CEO, Experian, said: “It is an honour to be named among the “Most Admired” companies by Management Today. This is a clear recognition of Experian’s strategic focus on helping businesses and consumers achieve better outcomes, whether that’s creating greater financial access, preventing fraud or facilitating business growth. I also believe it’s a testament to our 17,000 colleagues around the world who work every day to service and power opportunities for all our customers.”

The Britain’s Most Admired Companies Awards rate and record the reputations of the UK’s largest and most successful businesses. The awards, which have been running since 1990, are an important indicator of the highest performing companies in British business. The awards are based on a piece of bespoke academic research by Leeds Business School. It is a peer review survey and to do well companies must win the respect of their fiercest critics, their competitors.

This year’s survey sees a substantive change to the Most Admired methodology, with the addition of three new criteria (inspirational leadership, company competitiveness and corporate governance) to the existing nine. This year’s survey comprises 241 of the UK largest companies across 25 sectors. These include the largest listed companies in each sector plus selected privately held firms and the UK arms of multinationals with a substantial presence here.
