It’s an exciting week for our data quality business and it’s not just because of all the mince pies and Christmas parties. This week sees us bid a fond farewell to our former Clapham home, George West House, as we move to a brand-new office, Friars House, in Southwark.
Just a stone’s throw from Waterloo, our new office will take us closer to Central London, many of our valued customers as well as with fantastic views of the London Eye and the Shard.
This move shows just how far we’ve come since our early days. Back in the 1990s prior to our acquisition by Experian we were known as QAS Ltd. and Clapham Common is where we started our journey. Over the years George West House has served us incredibly well as the head office of a rapidly growing data quality business. As part of Experian, we’ve grown from a small partnership to being a fundamental part of a Global FTSE 50 organisation. As data becomes an ever-important business asset in today’s complex digital world, our capabilities have evolved to respond to the data management challenges that organisations now face. It’s for that reason our growing business now forms an integral part of the wider Experian offering as we help organisations use the power of their data to unlock opportunity.
We’ve loved our time in Clapham and have built strong connections with the community but we’re excited about this next chapter for our data quality business. In April this year we embarked on an exciting project to find a new office location. From a practical perspective, we needed greater capacity to meet our growth ambitions and a central location to be easily accessible for current and future employees. Crucially however, it also had to be a great space to welcome customers and other Experian colleagues alike. With increased meeting capacity, state of the art IT equipment and a modern look and feel, Friars House ticks the boxes and we’re looking forward to making ourselves at home and welcoming our customers and partners.
We are now up and running at Friar’s House. If you need to get in touch, full address details can be found on our website here but our existing phone numbers and email addresses remain unchanged.
