Andrea Davis is appointed Managing Director of TDX Industry Solutions.
TDX’s existing products and services developed for industry participants to be managed by TDX Industry Solutions with immediate effect.
Sawfish Software has been acquired by TDX and will join TDX Industry Solutions under the leadership of newly appointed Managing Director Craig White.
1st October 2012 – TDX today announced the formation of a new, independent, division which will provide products and services to participants of the debt industry. It will leverage data and technology to improve decision making, efficiency and service across the debt industry.
Led by newly appointed Managing Director Andrea Davis, who brings with her a wealth of product and operational delivery expertise having held business leadership positions most recently with Fellowes, the division will operate independently from TDX existing businesses. Andrea will report directly into Mark Sanders, CEO.
With immediate effect, TDX products and services that have been developed for industry suppliers including Insolvency Practitioners, Debt Management Companies and Debt Collection Agencies will be transferred to this division.
Sawfish Software – the UK’s leading supplier of workflow management software for Insolvency Practitioners and Debt Management Companies – has been acquired by TDX to join the division with immediate effect. Craig White, appointed as Managing Director of Sawfish Software, will lead this business which will continue to be based in York.
Mark Sanders, TDX Group CEO, commented: “We have ambitious growth plans for TDX and our partners are increasingly telling us they would like to leverage the insight, data and technology we can bring to bear. With our intermediary position we believe we are well placed to help companies across the debt industry and we’ve established TDX Industry Solutions so that we can independently focus on their requirements.
“To be able to start this journey with Andrea Davis as Managing Director, and the addition of Sawfish Software to the division with its proven case management and workflow technology, demonstrates our commitment and focus on the needs of wider industry participants.”
Andrea Davis, Managing Director, commented: “I am delighted to have the opportunity to build and shape this new division as well as to welcome Sawfish as a critical part of that journey. Over the coming months, I look forward to listening to how we can support a new group of clients and launching new products and services to better serve the industry”.
Craig White, Managing Director, Sawfish Software commented: “This truly marks the start of an exciting phase for Sawfish. With a new parent company and additional investment we are able to move forward with our exciting plans to work in partnership with both existing and potential clients as we increase and enhance our product range – building on the strengths already established by the Sawfish team and our market-leading DebtFlow solution.”
