Working closely with CIO to build the Data & Analytics team around the agreed principles. Through Ammonite’s network, hired a perm Head of Data & Analytics with further small technical team made up of 3 Data Scientist, 2 Data Analysts & 2 Data Engineers.


Mentors provided ongoing support where appropriate to CIO & new permanent Data & Analytics team.
