09-Apr-2019

LexisNexis® Risk Solutions, the global information solutions provider, and part of RELX, has announced the appointment of Steve Elliot as managing director of its UK Business Services business unit.

Steve joins LexisNexis Risk Solutions from resourcing and consultancy firm Huntswood, where he also served as managing director. He has 25 years’ experience providing financial crime and payment solutions to clients across financial services, gaming, utilities and payment firms.

Steve has previously held executive roles in risk management in the UK and abroad, bringing with him a strong set of credentials, including chairman of the ABI Anti-Fraud committee, where he introduced an online, global anti-counterfeiting system, leading directly to the removal of several hundred million pounds of fraudulent and counterfeit product trade advertisements. Beyond this, he also has experience of chairing a variety of leading industry groups, and has supported the development of global investigation and security standards. He was also detective inspector in the Royal Hong Kong Police force within the Commercial Crime Bureau, so brings experience of on-the-ground law enforcement too.

Steve joins the team with a clear mandate to drive strong domestic growth for LexisNexis Risk Solutions, and to maximise new opportunities for the business. He will be based in the firm’s UK office in Cardiff. 

Steve Elliot, managing director of LexisNexis® Risk Solutions Business Services UK said:

“I know LexisNexis Risk Solutions well, having encountered the team repeatedly over the past several years both as a product buyer and, more recently, as a bid competitor. The company has always been one to embrace change, and with increasing interest in identity solutions growing, now is a unique time to join the firm. I look forward to seeing the UK team achieve new successes and continue to provide market-leading solutions to our customers.”
