    History

    Experian’s history is more dynamic than the other credit bureaus which includes being acquired several different times.  It also includes their own acquisitions.

    The company was found in 1980 by John Peace.  At that time is was called CNN Systems.  CNN was then purchased by TRW.  Experian then demerged for its parent company and was listed on the London stock exchange in 2006.

    Over the next few years, Experian has acquired a couple different companies, which includes: Northern Credit Bureaus in Quebec and Hitwise, an internet monitor that collects data from internet ISP’s.
