Graydon, leading provider of business data, insights, analytics and data-solutions announced today that the business is strengthening its offering into Ireland. 

For the first time, Irish businesses can benefit from Graydon’s market-leading onboarding solution helping risk managers and fraud and compliance teams speed up the often slow and fragmented process of onboarding customers and suppliers.

Graydon has appointed Jonathan Cushley to spearhead its strategic growth in Ireland, where he will be focused primarily on Graydons innovative new onboarding platform, an AI-based, turnkey solution that simplifies credit, fraud and compliance processes into one seamless workflow. Previously European Account Director at D&B, Jonathan has over 33 years’ experience in driving global sales and revenue in the business intelligence sector.

Simon Blackwell, Graydon UK’s Managing Director:

“It’s great to have secured the services of Jonathan to drive our commercial activities in Ireland. I’m confident that the combination of our unique, market leading onboarding solution and Jonathans knowledge and experience of the market will support Graydon’s growth aspirations in Ireland and help Irish based businesses to reduce fraud and benefit from making the ever increasingly complex world of onboarding customers and suppliers quicker and more efficient.”

Jonathan Cushley, Irish market specialist at Graydon UK:

“I’m excited about working with Graydon to launch this innovative solution in Ireland. We have a tremendous opportunity to help Irish businesses reduce fraud and make their onboarding processes more efficient – ensuring they remain compliant with growing regulation, saving them time and money and helping them drive top line revenue. Having worked closely with many of the large, global organisations located here, I know that this solution can help solve many of the problems that they encounter on a day-to-day basis.
