Jeff Hellinga has extensive experience in the information services industry, and is expert in the application of data and analytics to create business insight. Long before the advent of “Big Data”, Jeff was working with companies across a range of industries from banking, insurance, and telecommunications to tenant screeners, healthcare providers and retailers to leverage consumer behavioral data in managing their businesses.
During his 9-year tenure as President of TransUnion’s U.S. Information Services (USIS)business, Jeff grew the bottom line by over $80,000,000 despite going through the economic downturn from 2007 – 2010. He completed acquisitions of several data and analytics organizations to further diversify the revenue base and gain entry to new markets and product innovation. He also led due-diligence efforts to complete two purchase transactions of the company within an 18-month period while exceeding all financial goals.
Before his promotion to President USIS, Jeff established a new profit center at TransUnion focused on custom analytics and decision technology and completed two acquisitions to bring in needed capabilities for the business.
Prior to his 15 years at TransUnion, Jeff held various sales leadership positions in the direct marketing and office equipment industries. Currently Jeff serves as Board Director for Black Oak Partners, LLC.
