“Data is vital. Efficient, effective, accurate analysis of data is more critical than ever for running an organization and ensuring its key functions are nimble, responsive, and contributing to the greatest possible return on investment,” said Johnson.

Edgeworth Analytics will look to tap into growing demand for data analysis as companies become increasingly overwhelmed by their information volumes. HR functions, for example, are having more trouble keeping up with data flows and effectively analyzing it to boost performance. Edgeworth will advise clients on data gathering methods, organization, analysis, and application, in order to drive stronger operational performance.

The firm’s teaching program, meanwhile, will help professionals get more comfortable with data and better understand dashboards and key performance indicators.

Bill Ford, Edgeworth’s director of strategy, will oversee the operations of the new analytics firm. Ford has extensive experience in product development and financial consulting, and has worked with numerous clients to develop insights from data and provide them with effective tools and training.

Ford was a previously a product manager at investment firm Cambridge Associates and a market intelligence and reporting solutions manager at Microfinance Information Exchange. He holds an MBA from Yale University and BA from Colby College.
