Royal Mail and Yorkshire Water are among the clients who turn to this Leeds firm for help in areas such as fraud reduction and credit-risk assessment. The firm says more than 2m consumers use its credit reporting and scoring service, Noddle. In 2014, American private equity firm GTCR backed a £480m buyout. Following the deal, Mike Gordon, 47, joined as chief executive. In June, it made its third acquisition in less than 18 months, buying Spanish fraud-prevention specialist Confirma group for an undisclosed sum.
