Experian raids Irish agency for new general manager

LONDON – Experian has strengthened its Marketing Services division in Ireland by appointing Irish direct marketing industry veteran Peter Crotty, previously client services director at Dialogue Marketing Communications, as general manger.

It is the first major appointment since Experian acquired Ireland Direct Communications in September this year. As well as responsibility for day-to-day business, Crotty's role includes the introduction of Experian's direct marketing products and services to the local market.

Experian has appointed him alongside Lorcan Lynch and Chris Clifford, who co-founded Ireland Direct. Lynch is the managing director of the division and Clifford is head of lifestyle and demographic profiling.

Crotty has spent 16 years in the Irish direct marketing industry, and is an Irish Direct Marketing Association board member and an Institute of Direct Marketing lecturer. Before his six-year stint at Dialogue Marketing Communications, he was head of direct marketing at Saatchi & Saatchi in Dublin.

David Coupe, managing director of Experian's international Marketing Services division, said "Peter's appointment shows that Experian is committed to recruiting the best talent in the Irish direct marketing industry. Peter is a real industry champion and he understands what direct marketers in Ireland want from their direct marketing services provider."
