INTERTEK chief financial officer Lloyd Pitchford has left the safety services provider to join Experian after the FTSE 100 credit checking company promoted former CFO Brian Cassin to chief executive in January.
Pitchford has been Intertek CFO since April 2010, having previously spent ten years at BG Group where he held various senior finance positions, including group financial controller, and seven years at Mobil Oil in financial and commercial roles.
Experian also announced that Jan Babiak, a former managing partner at EY, will join the company as a new independent non-executive director.
Babiak is a non-executive of Walgreens and Bank of Montreal, and a former non-executive of Logica, and joined the board of Royal Mail ahead of its privatisation in 2013.
Don Robert, chief executive officer of Experian, said the company had been "deeply impressed" by Pitchford during the search process.
"Lloyd brings deep financial knowledge and considerable experience, built up through an impressivecareer working in complex, multinational organisations," Robert said.
Pitchford will join Experian in September 2014 and Jan Babiak will join with immediate effect.
