TransUnion has appointed Aron Kamakil as the new Chief Information Officer for Kenya and the East African region.
Until his appointment, Aron had been serving as the Head of IT Retail Banking at NCBA Group, a position he held for a little over a year. He has served at NCBA Group for over 3 years, rising up the ranks from the Manager of Digital Card Channels to his immediate former position which is also an equivalent of a CIO.
Aron has also had a stint at Commercial Bank of Africa where he served for five years as the Manager, Digital and Card Channel Applications. He has also worked at the Co-operative Bank of Kenya and at Equity Bank Limited.
He now joins TransUnion, which is an American consumer credit reporting agency, but he will be heading the technology division in East Africa. TransUnion collects and aggregates information on over one billion individual customers in over thirty countries.
TransUnion has been in the business of enabling trust for over 50 years as a credit reporting agency. Decades of stewarding and analyzing data have given us a holistic understanding of consumer identity. Additionally, substantial investments in new data sources and technology have fueled expansion into new areas like fraud, marketing and customer-driven analytics.
Today, TransUnion is a global information and insights company that makes trust possible in global commerce.
