Chief Executive Officer
In 2005, David founded Analytics8 in the United States. His focus is on leading and building Analytics8’s business in the Americas as well as our worldwide products business.
Building something or doing an activity with my family. You’ll never find me being idle. “Relaxing” on a beach sounds like torture to me.
At various times I wanted to be an artist, an archaeologist, a magician, a computer programmer like my Dad, and from about 7th grade-on, I wanted to be an engineer.
I’ve never drank even a drop of milk. Ice cream, yes. Cheese, yes. Yogurt, yes. Milk, never!
Chief Operating Officer
Brian oversees sales, delivery and operations for Analytics8.
There are too many options but you can’t go wrong with good Mexican.
“It has been my experience that folks who have no vices have very few virtues.” –Abraham Lincoln
There are many, but early on I remember the satisfaction of presenting a proof of concept to a prospective customer and solving some of their previously “unsolvable” data questions. That experience was infectious and is one of the reasons why I still find BI such a rewarding area to work in.
Chief Marketing Officer
Tracey is responsible for all marketing efforts for Analytics8's products and services including lead generation, brand positioning and awareness, content creation, digital marketing, advertising, business development, events, and sponsorships.
Likely chasing my twins around and finding some creative way to entertain them. I also love running on the Chicago lakefront path (yes, even in the winter) and checking out the shops and restaurants in our neighborhood. And eating pizza. I love pizza.
My first job out of college was working as a consultant for Accenture where I focused on training development and delivery. I met so many great people at Accenture and got to work with some really fun clients including: Discovery Channel, PBS, Gannett, and the Transportation Security Administration.
I was the manager at the community pool for many summers in college. This was a great experience and taught me a lot about customer service and how to best lead a team.
Chief Technology Officer
Patrick is responsible for leading the technical direction of Analytics8, ensuring that we are able to provide the most cutting edge and effective technologies, methodologies, and approaches to help our customers make the best decisions with data.
Playing with my sons, Oliver and George. If they’re asleep, I’m probably out in the garage tinkering or building something. If they’re with the babysitter, my wife and I are sharing a bottle (or two!) of wine while binging on Netflix. We both enjoy documentaries and historical drama.
I wanted to be a concert pianist when I was in elementary school. In high school, I realized being a rock guitarist was more popular with the ladies, so I shifted my focus to a louder musical genre.
Take the one thing in your life that you can never live without and make that your hobby. Take the thing in life you’re the best at, and make that your career; it will afford you the opportunity to love your hobby forever. I’m not sure that’s exactly my favorite quote, but it’s definitely the quote that has had the most impact on my life. A homeless man who was helping me wash my car for a few bucks said that quote to me in between semesters while at university. I changed my major to electrical engineering before the next semester and I’ve been the tech guy ever since.
Chief Financial Officer
John is responsible for the Finance function at Analytics8.
Learning new things, meeting new people, and building a new team—these things excite me!
You’ve been empowered; lead well!
My favorite pizza is iFratelli Pizza in Dallas. If I have to get pizza in Chicago, however, it’ll be from Ranalli’s.
Chief People Officer
Karin oversees Analytics8's Talent Acquisition, Career Development and Retention, Resource Allocation and Human Resources.
Toes in the sand, salt in the air, and laughing with friends and family.
Gone bungee jumping or sky diving....no way you could get me to jump OUT of a plane or off a bridge, tethered to a rope or not!
My first job was working in a convent. I got paid to keep the nuns company and to bring them lunch.
Chief Revenue Officer
Steve oversees growth acceleration and global expansion for Analytics8.
The legacy I leave behind is not just about professional achievements, but the impact I have on the lives of others. I wish to be remembered as an awesome husband and a tremendous dad. Professionally, my desire is to be a leader who cares deeply about his teams. I value the collective strength of a united team and want to be remembered for fostering an environment where everyone felt valued, heard, and motivated to excel.
In my current role, the potential for transformation and setting the vision for the next phase of growth excites me. What's even more exciting is the opportunity to drive the strategy that brings this vision to life.
My first job was at a bowling center as a Porter. It was here that I honed a skill that proved invaluable throughout my career — the ability to connect with people. With every new face that walked through the door, there was an opportunity to strike up a conversation (pun definitely intended). This experience taught me the importance of human connection. As a leader, I always remember that behind every title and job description, there's a person with a story. Engaging with and valuing those stories is key to building a team that thrives together.
Tony leads our Data Management Service Line, which includes cloud architecture, data architecture, and data engineering and integration.
I worked with my dad and grandfather in manufacturing plants deburring parts. It wasn’t glamourous, but I learned quickly that the family business probably wasn’t for me. I came home covered in oil and exhausted from being awake before 5:00 a.m., so I decided was going to take a different path.
This sounds crazy, but I think I make a really, really good homemade pizza. If I’m not making pizza at home though, we’re going to Glass Nickel in Madison for their Fetalicious pizza.
I wanted to be a civil engineer that designed sports stadiums. I wanted to combine my aptitude for math and science with my love for sports and couldn’t envision a better way to do so. Turns out data is an even better confluence of those two interests.
Kevin leads our Analytics Service Line, overseeing its strategic direction and ensuring the delivery of modern, high-impact analytics solutions for our clients.
Chasing my daughter around the playground, or on a quest to find the best pizza in Chicago. If not there, then I’m going for long runs through Chicago neighborhoods, attending a concert with my wife, or hopelessly rooting for the Chicago Bears.
I worked in the men’s suit department at Nordstrom. I learned how to do a halfway decent job folding dress shirts, and learned most designer suits are outside the budget of an average 16-year-old.
I was a classically trained pianist and soprano in the choir growing up, and I can grow a fantastic mustache.
Christina leads our Data Strategy Service Line, helping our customers to think and act strategically about data and analytics.
The opportunity to make a difference for our customers and build a better future. There is such an incredible amount of power and potential in the overwhelming amounts of data available today; helping our customers approach data and analytics strategically—leaning on our collective experience and thought leadership to carve a path forward that is practical and immediately impactful—and then watching them grow and succeed is exciting and fulfilling work.
I was a cashier at Ace Hardware in high school. I learned a little about hardware and a lot about customer service and the value of working with a great team. The way I remember it now, things were either dead or crazy busy. I was fortunate to work with great people who communicated well and had each other’s back during the busy times and entertained each other and bonded during the down times. I even built a simple website where we could share stories and pictures of the team at our store.
My grandmother made the BEST pizza. We spent years trying to learn to make it the same way, even tried videotaping her making it once. I haven’t quite achieved her mastery of it but making it the way she used to is still my favorite pizza to eat.
Vice President of Sales
Philip is responsible for growth at Analytics8 through organic sales—key account land and expand—as well as corporate development including mergers, acquisitions, and integrations.
I really like figuring out ways to grow the business as quickly and as healthily as possible, while preserving our identity, culture, and customer experience. It’s very hard to do this organically and perhaps even harder to grow through M&A, which has a historically low success rate in services businesses. Solving this ever-evolving puzzle is high stakes and requires strategic thinking, creativity, and grit to get from a defined objective to the end results without distraction or making too many mistakes. This may sound crazy, but it’s a lot of fun!
I applied for jobs the day I was legally able to apply for a job and got one the next day a gas station attendant, pumping gas in the Maine winter. With my name, you can imagine how many “punny” people rolled through asking Philip to “fill it up!” In an effort to be the best and fastest guy at the station, I made some mistakes and damaged a couple people’s cars which was really embarrassing to say the least! There I learned that slow is smooth, and smooth is fast! Ok, I learned a lot more than that like how to grind through tough work conditions, how to handle money, and the older workmates showed me what my life might look like if I didn’t work hard or smart enough to get to bigger and better things.
I think one thing most data people might assume is that if someone has and analyzes the right data, they will consult the data to make different and better decisions because they have the facts! This is false. Humans are wired to make decisions driven by their gut more than logic, so we cannot underestimate the power of that human tendency, and we need to do more than just present data and expect it to drive change. We also must change our behaviors and processes for making decisions to deliberately include data as input to making major decisions. Data is a very helpful input, but it’s only one of many.
Global VP Revenue Operations
Mark runs an efficient and effective go-to-market function through systems, process, analytics, and enablement.
The abundant opportunity to harness better data to unlock Analytics8's full potential and drive more informed decisions. I am actively building the software stack and processes that will empower the organization to achieve these goals.
A better appreciation of work/life balance and a more honest relationship between companies and their employees.
Calm, patient, and low-ego — because that’s what I strive for.
Head of Alliances and Channels
Amos is responsible for growth at Analytics8 through its growing network of strategic partnerships.
I wanted to work in government as a policy researcher or in the foreign service — a bureaucrat in the best sense of the word.
People focus on discovering novel insights with data, but I think we underrate the value of simply knowing and sharing facts. A sign of a high-functioning data organization is that the leaders all know what is happening, and they can make decisions based on a set of shared knowledge.
If you swallow a piece of gum, apparently it does not stay in your digestive system for years. I am disappointed that I can't use it on my kids now.
