Appointments strengthen Deloitte’s risk data and analytics team
Deloitte, the business advisory firm, has appointed two financial services specialists, Andrew Berry and Scott Thomson, to its risk data and analytics team.
Mr Berry was previously SAS UK’s financial services sales support leader, working with global and UK banks over the last 10 years, and previously an information architect with National Australia Group Europe.
He will be based in Deloitte’s Edinburgh office as a director, and will help build the firm’s banking data and analytics capabilities with a focus on Scotland.
Mr Thomson has over 20 years’ insurance experience, having worked for Aviva for over 10 years and then at SAS UK financial services and EXL Services. Prior to this, he provided analytics advisory services to general insurers during his time at PwC.
He joins Deloitte in London as a director and will support the growth and investment in data analytics across the insurance sector.
Paul Garel-Jones, head of financial services risk data and analytics, said: “Analytics is key to enabling our clients to grow their businesses in a controlled and cost effective way. Deloitte continues to invest significantly in both analytics technology such as cognitive computing and in our analytics team. I am therefore delighted that Andrew and Scott are joining to support the development of our retail banking and insurance sectors.”
