TransUnion has appointed Neil Bentley as general counsel in the UK to lead legal, risk and compliance.
Bentley joined the credit reporting company in 2006, and has managed both the legal transactions and compliance teams.
He worked with the legal regulatory team in 2017 before becoming legal director and data protection officer.
Bentley succeeds Bill Flynn, who moves on to TransUnion’s international leadership team as senior vice president, taking over leadership of all TransUnion’s legal teams outside of the US.
Flynn will remain on the UK board and retain his close involvement with the UK business.
On his appointment, Bentley commented: “I look forward to working with the executive team to help drive innovation and support our growth objectives whilst maintaining the highest industry standards of data stewardship and privacy.
“It’s an exciting time for our sector, as credit information becomes an ever more integral aspect of people’s day-to-day lives and I’m delighted to play a part in supporting this evolution.”
Satrajit Saha, chief executive officer of TransUnion in the UK, said: “With his vast legal expertise, combined with a deep-rooted knowledge of our UK operations, he will be a valuable addition as we continue to carry out our strategies for long-term and sustained growth.”
