TransUnion names LexisNexis division chief its new CEO
Credit reporting company TransUnion hired an executive of Reed Elsevier as its new president and CEO.
Jim Peck starts Dec. 31 and will be appointed to the board soon after that, Chicago-based TransUnion said in a statement this morning. Mr. Peck has been CEO of Reed's LexisNexis Risk division since October 2008 and has led the division since 2004, the statement said.
In February, Chicago-based TransUnion announced a deal to be acquired by a buyout firm and a Goldman Sachs fund from owners Madison Dearborn Partners LLC and the Pritzker family.
Mr. Peck, 49, succeeds Bobby Mehta, who will remain on the board and be an adviser to the firm. TransUnion said in July that Mr. Mehta had told the board he wanted to resign but would remain in the position until his replacement was named.
Mr. Peck's “in-depth knowledge in analytics and risk management as well as his proven track record of execution and of developing high performance organizations will serve TransUnion's shareholders and associates well," Mr. Mehta said in the statement.
