Equifax Inc. EFX recently announced that Audrey Boone Tillman, executive vice president and general counsel at Aflac Incorporated AFL, has joined its board as an independent director.

Tillman has deep knowledge in corporate governance and a broad legal and business background. She has high experience in human resources, compliance and government relations, and involvement in business strategy and operations. Tillman has been with Aflac since 1996 and has held several leadership roles there.

Mark W. Begor, CEO of Equifax, said that Tillman’s involvement will benefit the company’s innovation strategies that involve investment in cloud data and technology, people and new products.

Notably, Equifax’s shares have charted a solid trajectory in recent times, appreciating 15.9% over the past year against 2.2% decline of the industry it belongs to and 17.9% surge of the Zacks S&P 500 composite.
