Creditinfo Group appointed Linas Čereška to implement strategy in Lithuania

As of September 6, the leadership of Creditinfo in Lithuania has been assumed by Linas Čereška. Goals set for the new CEO by Creditinfo Group include further integrating Creditinfo Lietuva into the Group’s international operations, introducing innovative services with extra value added for customers, and strengthening collaboration with partners. Linas Čereška, an experienced executive, replaces Creditinfo Lietuva former CEO Andrius Bogdanovičius.“We consider it vital to further strengthen Creditinfo Group’s positions in international markets and we see many new opportunities for working with the offices in other countries. That’s why to lead Creditinfo Lietuva we’ve brought in a proven executive with valuable experience at international organizations who has also demonstrated his ability to successfully lead companies in Lithuania,” says Brynja Baldursdóttir, Creditinfo Group’s Regional Manager for Northern Europe, regarding the new CEO’s appointment. “We’re grateful to Andrius, who has been a driving force in the company for many years and led the team which created an undisputable market leader.”

“It was a valuable experience to work in a company for fifteen years and seeing it evolving from the very beginning. I wish the best success to the whole Creditinfo team during new stage of business. I sincerely believe we will be closely collaborating in the future”, Andrius Bogdanovičius said while welcoming new CEO.

According to Baldursdóttir, the need to offer group services more actively is also dictated by business conditions. “Our customers are growing, merging and boosting operations in a global market, so they need ever more, and more varied, services. We have put together a strong international team whose insights help customers make more accurate decisions, choose reliable business partners, and expand their business more safely both within the Baltics and in new, less familiar markets,” she notes.

Creditinfo Group, which operates in more than 30 countries, combining and analyzing credit information about companies and individuals, will soon introduce new services for customers in Lithuania. We are pooling the talents across all our markets, and the Baltics specifically, to build decisioning solutions that fit each market need. There are huge developments in data access and data science, for example with transaction data, that we are in a unique position to utilize to help our clients make better and more automated credit decisions. It is planned that Creditinfo Lietuva new CEO Linas Čereška will play an active role in these processes.

“Together with a team of experienced professionals I’m ready to help Lithuania’s companies make better, more effective decisions based on reliable information. We will be guided in our work by the Group’s core values: respect and innovation – focusing on what matters to get things done,” Linas Čereška says of his new role.
