Graydon UK is interviewing for a new managing director with current boss Martin Williams set to stand down early next year.
After 23 year at the credit reference agency he is semi-retiring but plans to continue building brand awareness at the Uxbridge-based firm through blogs and press work.
"I joined Graydon in 1987 as operations director with the task of computerising the company, turning it from an old fashioned paper oriented credit reference agency," he told MicroScope.
Williams was made managing director in 2002 and confirmed that he will leave the position in February. "The search for a successor has begun", he added.
At the start of 2010, Mark Ancell, head of the intelligence unit at Graydon left the company to join Computer 2000 as credit manager and was replaced by Alan Norton, who managed the division previously before moving elsewhere internally.
