The firm offers Commercial, Consumer, Insurance and Auto risk information solutions across a number of industries, as well as personal credit management solutions in Africa.

We believe that, under Morris’ leadership and with the commitment of our talented Kenya team, the business will go from strength to strength,” said Thabo Molefe, TransUnion’s head of Africa operations outside of South Africa.
“In our increasingly digital global economy, trusted relationships that enable everyone to transact with confidence have never been more important.
