Savage steps up to replace Caroline Worboys, who is leaving the group. He joined CIG in June last year as corporate development director and played a key part in the management buy out of Callcredit in December 2009, which was backed by private equity firm Vitruvian Partners.

He previously spent more than 20 years with Experian where he was managing director of its marketing services business.

John McAndrew, CEO of CIG, says “Chris joined us at an exciting stage and has made a big impact in a short time. His experience and enthusiasm are just what we need to capitalise on the opportunities we have as a growth oriented business.

CIG recruits experts in credit referencing, marketing services, interactive solutions and consultative analytics and offers services in the five areas of strategic planning, customer acquisition, customer verification, customer management & value building and collections & recoveries.
