Today Experian announced five high-level appointments to its North American Credit Services group. Filling these crucial leadership roles are five seasoned women who have a proven track record of success with Experian. These women include:
- Genevieve Juillard, President, Consumer Information Services
- Hiq Lee, President, Business Information Services
- Laura DeSoto, Sr. Vice President of Marketing, Business Information Services
- Michele Pearson, Sr. Vice President of Indirect Sales, Credit Services and Decision Analytics
- Robin Norris, Chief Financial Officer, Credit Services
While this may read like a typical senior appointment announcement, I believe that it is much more important than that. Being a woman with nearly 20 years of working in a variety of industries, this is an announcement that personally resonates with me. These women have earned their places in an industry in which many may argue is predominately led by men.
I have had the opportunity to work with all of these women at one point or another (some more than others) and have seen first-hand the talented, smart and inspiring women that they are. Many of them have children and have managed to juggle their work/family balance while still maintaining their extensive grasp on the credit industry and steadily climbing the corporate ladder with elegance and grace.
I’m a member of the PR group here at Experian and while it’s part of my job to promote news, it is not necessarily my job to create a post like this one. I wanted to personally share this post because the diverse workplace and cultivation of growth we have at Experian is something that I feel strongly about.
