I am a Principal Consultant at IPL specialising in developing Information Management strategies and business cases for IPLís clients. Previously, I was the Data Manager for Essent Belgium where I led Data Governance and Data Quality programmes as well as extending BI capabilities and introducing Business Analytics to support Continuous Improvement. In 2010 I was a finalist in the Dutch/Belgian Data Quality Award based on the quantified benefits of the Data Quality program at Essent Belgium.
I am an advocate for keeping IM as simple and business focused as possible, and I promote the principle that IM professionals should first understand how a business delivers value and then match the appropriate IM techniques to support value delivery.
I have a First Class Degree in Engineering from Cambridge University, I am a Chartered Engineer with the Institute of Engineering and Technology and hold the DAMA International CDMP certification at Mastery Level. Thanks to my time in Belgium, I also speak French and Dutch.
