How to search for a Company Director?

In today’s business world, it’s critical to know who you’re working with, as it’s pretty easy for almost anyone to say, “I’m a company director”, but how do you know you’re dealing with a trustworthy individual or organisation? How can you even search for a company director?

There are hundreds of websites and search engines that supply customers with information on national and international businesses. Many of them provide this service to varying degrees of quality, but they have one thing in common: they all provide the same kind of information. If it’s regular, run of the mill financial information you’re after, then you’re spoilt for choice. But what if you want information that isn’t easily accessible, such as information on individual company directors, the number of employees the company currently has or even their risk assessment band?

DataGardener provides an extensive database of information on almost every UK based company. This includes more than just standard financial data and company-related news. DataGardener allows their clients to search any way they want, including by their charges, CCJs or even trading addresses. More recently, thanks to developments in their search engine functionality, clients can now search for companies by the age of that company’s director. Although this may have seemed like a niche function, it has a wide variety of uses for companies in various sectors.

For example, let’s say you’re a private pension or life insurance company looking for new clients. Rather than just sending blanket, generic emails selling life insurance or private pensions to random eligible companies, why not refine your process to target only those who may be interested in your service?

Being able to search for directors by their age range allows you to be hyper-specific when finding new leads. This not only saves your company valuable time, but it also saves you the cost involved with sending emails and letters to people who may not even bother to read your proposals.

In another scenario, the same function could be vital in identifying potential customers for companies interested in mergers or acquisitions. This is made possible by targeting directors or CEOs entering retirement age, possibly anywhere from ages 50-60. CEO’s around this age bracket are likely looking for some kind of exit strategy. One of the simplest ways to execute this strategy is by simply selling their business to another company.

By narrowing your search down to specific ages, your company can streamline its lead generation and offer its services to only those likely to be interested. Once again, saving you valuable time and money in the process.
