If you want to improve data quality, first you need to improve culture
September 2nd, 2020
I am a managing consultant at Newgold, as part of the KDR Talent Solutions Group, helping candidates find their dream roles with our data, technology and analytics clients.
I started my recruitment career at KDR back in 2010, since then I’ve exclusively recruited in the data & analytics domain. Leaving KDR in 2006 I joined another niche data & analytics recruitment agency, 3 years later, I’m back and focussing on Senior Appointments and Executive Search where I can add value to organisations by leveraging our community and network of CDOs.
I love working on CDO roles. The Chief Data Officer is a real game changer for organisations. The CDO is a major catalyst for change to actually utilise the vast amount of data organisations hold and have access to, on top of this they deliver considerable value from a commercial perspective.
🍷 My favourite drink is latte in the morning… and a Gin & Tonic or a nice glass of red (or 2!) in the evening.
🎥 My favourite film is The Crow or Pulp Fiction. It’s a tough decision!
🎵 My music taste is quite random from Gregory Porter to Survivor to the likes of John Mayer.
👀 My nickname is Towns or Townsend
🏏 I’m a Wannbe Cricket and hockey player and I have 2 beautiful little girls, Giorgia and Hollie.
