Kennesaw, GA and Tampa, FL (Vocus) September 1, 2010
MicroBilt Corporation, a leader in risk management information for small and medium-sized businesses, and CL Verify LLC, the industry leading real time credit bureau, announce today that the two companies will combine under the name MicroBilt Corporation.
The merger combines two growing entrepreneurial companies with complementary businesses and a shared spirit for innovation. Both companies are leaders in providing data solutions for verification, credit and collections, with each company serving different market segments. A combination of MicroBilt and CL Verify will result in significant growth opportunities from leveraging the companies’ combined data sets and analytic technologies.
Industry veteran, William "Wink" Price, will lead MicroBilt as its new CEO. Mr. Price is the former CEO of CBCInnovis, a leading provider of risk management solutions to customers in the business, government and not-for-profit sectors, which Mr. Price led for over 25 years. Mr. Price will join the Board of Directors and make an investment in MicroBilt Corporation.
“I am very excited to lead this combination of MicroBilt and CL Verify” said Price, “Both companies are true innovators in the business of risk management. Their respective data sets and tools are a great complement to each other and with little overlap in their respective businesses, there will be an immediate opportunity to achieve significant new growth.”
This merger follows MicroBilt’s acquisition of Payment Reporting Builds Credit (PRBC) and relaunch of the PRBC® Consumer Report with FICO® Expansion® Score early this year. “The need for new and alternative data sets for verification, credit, collections and screening is expanding in every segment of the market.” said Price, “MicroBilt and CL Verify have built great businesses that will provide the foundation for a great new company.”
