Cedar Rose celebrates its milestone 25th anniversary today reflecting on many pioneering achievements during its storied past. Beginning its journey in 1997, it has come a long way from being a company providing credit reports and due diligence investigations to a service provider offering end to end risk, verification and compliance solutions that enable companies to accelerate their customer onboarding, swiftly and with ease while staying assured they are protecting their company from non-compliance, financial and reputational losses.
“25 years ago, we had a vision of excellence,” said Antoun Massaad, Co-Founder and CEO of Cedar Rose.” From day one, our aim has been to ‘Strive for Excellence’. It is not a marketing slogan. It is an operational reality. This approach has enabled us to maintain successful relationships for more than two decades with our clients who return again and again, working with Cedar Rose as a long-term partner. Our 25th anniversary is an opportunity to reflect how far we have come and what lies ahead.”
Since its foundation, Cedar Rose has been delivering high quality credit risk reporting and analysis, business intelligence and investigative due diligence on companies and individuals in over 230 countries globally.
Looking back at the company’s accomplishments, Antoun reflected, “We initially grew as specialists in the Middle East and North Africa, building the world’s largest database in that region. Now, we’ve grown to be a global player, offering information on over 242 million companies worldwide. Our core belief is simple: by facilitating trust we can help our clients create valuable opportunities and sustainable long-term business relationships. With solid and reliable information on business partners, transactions are made safer and more secure so that a company is best placed to continue its business growth.”
