Under the spotlight: Arthur Renshaw, Experian Catalist

01 Career history:

I joined the oil industry way back in 1975. I joined Elf just after they entered the UK market with the acquisition of VIP Petroleum and worked for them for 12 years. I left Elf to join US-based consultants MPSI Systems where I looked after oil company clients across the world. I joined Catalist, as the company was then called, in 2001 specifically to develop its business in the UK and Ireland. In 2006 Catalist was acquired by Experian and I am still there (only until July 31!) and I still look after the retail fuel sector. In conjunction with James Haigh I am responsible for Catalist's UK retail pricing services as used across the industry.
