Chris Bannocks

Group Chief Data Officer, ING

I am a senior executive with over 20 years experience within the financial services sector. I now help organisations become data centric, assisting in transformation of architecture, culture, people and processes to deliver data quality, data governance and game changing approaches to reduce the cost of data collection, integration and lifecycle management. This delivers a clear strategy for leveraging data for greater returns.

I currently leverage these skills as the Group Chief Data Officer for ING Bank, a head office function with a federated CDO structure with 15 CDO Reports coupled with a central team.

Data is not purely a technical subject, so much of what we do is people focused. Finding the right people and associated strategies are critical to success as are the cultural aspects of how data is treated in an organisation. Data ethics and protection are key in ensuring your customers understand how their data is handled.

Speciality and focus: I want to transform the way financial services treat data and drive the sector to become truly data centric. I have a passion for data, coupled with vision to galvanise teams behind a data strategy that transforms their jobs. I like to work for ambitious organisations that want to understand strategy, and seek to avoid thinking that you cannot boil the ocean. I prefer to believe that if boiling the ocean is whats required (and sometimes it is!), we should first find a way to boil a swimming pool and progress from there, but believing its too hard and taking the easy route is not acceptable.

During her time there she managed to get an MBA that focused in the development and execution of customer centric strategies, which is what she loves and is quite passionate about. She recently went back to Old Mutual Insure to assist with the Customer centric drive but when she is not doing that, she is a wife and mother of 3 lovely children under the age of 10, so you can imagine how busy she gets when she is away from the office.

Chief Data Officer, Addison Lee

I left University with a degree in a bizarre subject called Actuarial Science and entered the dark world of very grey people who worked every hour god sent and did numbers for breakfast, lunch & dinner. I got into writing algorithms behind Insurance company systems for surrender values, car insurance premiums and mortgage indemnity. After 7 years of trying to finish the intolerable exams I gave up and found I could make a good living working with data and MI systems. After an Aviva takeover in 1999 I headed to the AA to finish their product warehouse off and lead the exploitation team, only for my boss to leave shortly after and leave me in charge. After a few years I was approached to set up an internal marketing analytics team and work with the central function running the warehouse. After 3 years I assumed total charge as we headed away from our parent company Centrica. After 5 changes of AA ownership and reaching Data & Insight Director I decided to leave for the role of Chief Data Officer at Addison Lee and modernize their data estate. Since joining Addison Lee I have worked on a number of projects including SCV, data governance, self-serve BI and analytics roll out, CRM improvement and moving into data science application to solve commercial problems.

Jason Teoh.

Head of Business Intelligence, Openreach

 

How long have you been in the role?  I have been working in the Business & Corporate Delivery unit in Openreach for 3 years, but picked up my expanded Head of Business Intelligence in August 2017.  I have responsibility for Data and Analytics for my business unit, but also have specialists managing the supply and demand of engineers, our regulatory analytics for Ofcom, as well as our statistical modelling team.

 How did you get in to the “data/Analytics space”.   I joined Openreach’s Business Modelling straight out of university with a degree in Mathematics and Economics, and a masters in Operational Research, so started my career in the business in one of their key analytical teams.  Since then, I’ve had a more varied career through sales, before coming back into an analytical environment. 

 What’s the most challenging scenario you have faced since starting the role?  The quality of our data, along with the structure and governance behind it, is a continuing challenge for my team.  It has been difficult generating consistent analytics, which is trusted by the business, given the variability in the data.  The challenge has been building trust and confidence with my stakeholders.
