Data On Demand, the Leeds based Alternative Consumer Data specialist has announced the appointment of two new graduates as they expand out the Business Development Team.

James Nassiri and Harry Bland have been brought in to support growth in core sector Collections & Recoveries alongside emerging markets such as ID&V, Utilities and Consumer Finance. The hires are the next phase in Data On Demand’s planned expansion as they continue to scale up the business. 

Sales Director, Simon Gregory said “Really excited to get Harry and James on board and looking forward to seeing the impact they can deliver for us over the coming months and years. I’m particularly pleased to be able to support graduates from the local area given the disproportionate impact they have felt from the pandemic. They are both a testament to the calibre of young professionals available in the market and I fully expect to see them progress and support both our own and our clients success”

The hires come on the back of recent success for Data On Demand with their Fintrace solution having been shortlisted for the Credit Services Association Innovation Award and Credit & Collections Technology Awards.

Fintrace helps businesses Identify, Verify and Contact customers and has been particularly successful for Debt Purchasers and Debt Collections Agencies to improve collections success and customer outcomes.  Their latest product, IdVu – Identifying Vulnerability – is also gaining traction across multiple market sectors having been developed to help identify potentially vulnerable customers as a result of the impact of the pandemic. 

CEO, Stuart Murgatroyd, said “We are continuing to invest in our products that provide data and insights to companies that service people, helping them better understand and improve engagement with customers. We’re also investing in people. Today, it is a great pleasure to welcome onboard our new graduate trainee Business Development Executives.”

“Harry and James will be helping us reach out to every DCA, Debt Purchaser, IDV&F provider to tell them more about our tracing, identification & verification and risk products that enable our clients to improve their services.”
