Fraudscreen, the first party fraud prevention company, has announced the appointment of new directors Matthew Elsom and Caroline Worboys.
Elsom, the new chief executive officer, will collaborate closely with founder James Middlehurst, and brings more than two decades of experience in the data and credit industry to his new post.
Elsom began his career working for Experian in 1988, and seven years ago moved to US-based risk-process automation company Provenir.
Prior to his appointment with Fraudscreen he worked for Portrait Software as sales director of Europe, Middle East and Africa.
Elsom said that he had heard nothing but good things about Fraudscreen during his career, adding that the criminals the firm fought against were less overt than the hooded thugs involved in recent rioting but did significantly more harm to businesses.
Worboys is also a veteran of the industry, and has set up her own business as well as enjoying success in turnarounds, integrations and acquisitions.
Four years ago, after selling her firm to News International, she became chief executive officer of Broadsystem.
Fraudscreen Chairman Francis Gugen said that the two prestigious appointments would help the firm to achieve the next level of growth.
