Creditsafe Italia. From Startup to Market Player.
Twenty years after the revolution of the business information industry, Creditsafe tells the story of its Italian adventure.
The Creditsafe Group has an exemplary story.
The company was founded in 1997, in Oslo, with the idea of using the then emerging technology of the Internet to supply on-line real-time business information, previously analogue, starting a revolution in the relevant industry.
The strategy also included an extremely-innovative management of the Human Resources, enabling the Norwegian multinational company to grow and expand internationally, opening 16 branches in 12 countries around Asia, Europe and the United States.
In 2013, Cato Syversen, the visionary CEO of Creditsafe, opened a new office in Turin, bringing to Italy the mind set and disruptive culture typical of the company.
Nowadays, Creditsafe Italia is a well-structured entity with 12,000 clients and more than 140 employees.
Luca Berti, the Country Manager of Creditsafe Italia, has recently declared:
"5 years of history, 15 million turnover, ongoing double-digit growths and more than 140 employees, these are big numbers for a start-up business.
The brave choice made in May 2013 by the Creditsafe Group is now paying off.
We are proud of the results obtained so far, and we should not underestimate the value of the strategic decision to settle here, in Turin.
This region, with its Savoy heritage, has a strong labour culture; it is popular all over the world for its brilliance and for being the cradle of industrious and professional people.
This is also the intrinsic nature of Creditsafe, we do not mind being considered “Underdogs” in some circumstances.
In Turin, we met young men and women full of enthusiasm and with the desire to have a chance in life, which was provided by Creditsafe."
