De La Rue’s organisational structure::
Currency Division – led by Ruth Euling, Managing Director,
De La Rue recognises that financial inclusion is critical to economic well-being and with over 80% of all global transactions currently made with cash, it is critical that the currency in people’s hands is authentic, easily available and cost effectively distributed.
From world-leading design and the integration of innovative high-security features, to safeguarding national reputations, at De La Rue, we create banknotes solutions that meet the individual needs of each currency and circulation environment.
Authentication Division – led by Andrew Clint, Managing Director
The total value of counterfeit and pirated goods in 2017 was estimated to be US$1.2 trillion. The consequences of illicit trade are far reaching and damaging for society; stunting socio-economic growth, risking citizens’ health, fueling criminal activity and damaging brand reputations. To combat illicit trade, the authenticity of products needs to be guaranteed from source to consumption.
At De La Rue, we create and deliver secure physical identifiers in the form of tax stamps and product authentication labels, as well as digital software solutions that help to protect from counterfeit and illicit trade, that help to secure revenues and safeguard reputations.
