Experian expands its footprint in the public-sector market

Company selects seasoned industry executive Barbara Rivera to drive Experian's North American public-sector business

COSTA MESA, Calif., Oct. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Experian® today announced that it has appointed Barbara Rivera to serve as president and general manager of its public-sector business, which includes the federal, state and local government markets. With this appointment, Experian will focus on expanding its reach into the areas of fraud, waste and abuse prevention, program integrity, identity management and revenue collections in the U.S. public sector.

In her role, Rivera will drive strategy and execution across Experian's public-sector business within the North American market. She will report to Scott Waldron, Experian's president of vertical markets, and will collaborate with government-focused system integrators and consulting organizations to deliver a combination of Experian's world-class data and analytics to its growing list of public-sector clients.

"Barbara has an impressive 20-year track record of developing and managing business with key federal, state and local organizations such as the Department of Defense, the Department of Justice, the Department of Education, New York City and State as well as the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services," said Waldron. "We have an outstanding group of professionals supporting our growth in the public sector. Barbara's expertise and ability to develop deep and rewarding partner strategies will accelerate our plans."

Experian Public Sector has made significant strides in the past few years to deliver its identity proofing capabilities to clients in the public sector. These solutions provide federal, state and local governments with the necessary tools to manage government projects while successfully reducing fraud and securely protecting agency and consumer data, verifying program eligibility and helping government organizations collect revenue. Currently, Experian is working with the U.S. Social Security Administration and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services on identity proofing and authentication solutions. The company also provides business credit solutions to FedBid®, a multibillion dollar online marketplace.

By expanding its reach into the public-sector market to include more of its extensive data and analytics solutions, Experian uniquely positions public professionals with a solutions-based approach to be better prepared to make decisions, manage programs, protect consumers and deliver results to complex missions.

"Experian's unwavering commitment to the public-sector market made them an intuitive partner for identity and risk-management efforts in the public-sector market," said Robert Burton, who served in the Executive Office of the President as Deputy Administrator of the Office of Federal Procurement Policy (OFPP) and is currently a  partner at Venable Law Firm  in Washington, D.C. "I also see a tremendous opportunity for Barbara and her team to bring quality data and insightful analytics to the expanding list of public-sector customers that are in need of these types of solutions."

Throughout her career, Rivera has successfully forged strong alliances and partnerships with countless system integrators and consulting organizations to advance business objectives and provide tangible solutions to the public sector. In addition to working with companies that include SAS, SAP, Oracle and IBM.

"I've worked in data and analytics throughout my entire career and have always regarded Experian as a leader in the industry," said Rivera. "Experian provides the highest-quality data and analytics solutions. I'm looking forward to building on the solid foundation they have built through their identity management services to deliver public-sector professionals the deep insight and support they need to manage complex programs."
