Richard Lloyd exits Info Arts

Information Arts chief Richard Lloyd has left his role as vice-president of European data after two and a half years in the post; it is understood he does not have a job to go to.
Lloyd joined Information Arts from the Infogroup UK, the UK start-up subsidiary of InfoGroup in the US and challenger to the likes of the business-to-business divisions of Experian, Equifax, and Acxiom. His role was removed following the company’s acquisition by CCMP Capital.
He has 26 years’ experience in the industry, having started his career at Dun & Bradstreet in 1986. Here he was responsible for all aspects of product development and launch relating to the Market Spectrum suite of database marketing software in Europe. After 14 years he quit to join Experian, eventually becoming managing director of business information, responsible for £40m revenue, covering business data in the UK.
He led a team of nearly 100, covering sales, marketing, sales support and field service.
By 2007, he had co-founded Cyance – another B2B data specialist – with Mike Housley and Shane Redding. He left a year later to join Information Arts.
Information Arts has undergone major change since the departure of founder Simon Lawrence in February, which was fuelled by the completion of a buyout deal by Harte-Hanks. Since then two Harte-Hanks chiefs have taken over the business – Donna Belanger has become managing director; Judith Niederschelp is vice-president of database solutions.
Lloyd was unavailable for comment.
