Press Release – 17 January 2017

Dun & Bradstreet has become a Corporate Partner to the Chartered Institute of Credit Management (CICM), joining a growing list of leading global organisations to partner with the industry professional group.

Building on their existing relationship, Dun & Bradstreet will continue to work closely with the CICM to provide insight from its payment data in support of the Prompt Payment Code and will also continue to be active at the CICM’s quarterly Think Tank meetings.

Ed Thorne, UKI Managing Director of Dun & Bradstreet, is looking forward to joining discussions with the CICM and other experts around shaping the future of the credit market. “The partnership gives Dun & Bradstreet the chance to share best practices and make new connections with other organisations across the industry,” he says. “With an uncertain economic and political future ahead, we can help businesses navigate these challenging times by providing credit information that identifies risks and potential growth opportunities.”

The CICM’s Chief Executive, Philip King, says adding Dun & Bradstreet to its growing roster of Corporate Partners will be a great benefit to members: “Dun & Bradstreet provides innovative data, insights and analytics that will be useful and of interest to many of our members. It is a valuable addition to our Corporate Partner network and we look forward to working with them.”
