Organizations that utilize data effectively can realize improvements in operational improvement, revenue and profitability, risk monitoring, and customer understanding and experience. These gains are critical for industries that have been especially pressured by the pandemic, such as retail, hospitality, and transport.

“It’s truly an exciting time for data-driven organizations and I’m thrilled to be a part of PA Consulting,” Schlesinger said. “I look forward to working together with our US clients to harness and optimize the value of their data.”
