- Trey Loughran, currently Chief Marketing Officer (CMO), will assume the role of President of United States Information Solutions (USIS). Prior to being named the CMO, Loughran was the President of Equifax Personal Solutions, now Global Consumer Solutions (GCS), and also served as the Senior Vice President of Corporate Development leading the company's global merger, acquisitions, and emerging markets activities. Internal and external candidates will be considered for the CMO role.

Barros will remain an active member of the Equifax senior leadership team.
- Nerida Caesar, currently the Managing Director of Equifax Australia & New Zealand, will transition to an advisory role through early 2018 to facilitate the seamless realignment of the Asia-Pacific region.
