Deloitte Analytics expands with partner appointment of Jason Gordon
14 November 2011
Deloitte Analytics has strengthened its partner team in the UK with the appointment of consumer business specialist, Jason Gordon.
Gordon will lead Deloitte Analytics’ consumer business services team. In his new role at Deloitte, he will advise retail, consumer products and travel, hospitality and leisure organisations on ways to gain improved insight and commercial value from their data. Gordon, who joins from Booz & Company’s Demand Analytics group, will also provide strategy consultancy services.
Commenting on Gordon’s appointment, head of Deloitte Analytics, Richard Hammell said: “Jason is a great addition to our analytics and consumer business teams. His experience and leadership will enable us to further support our clients in this sector as they seek to enhance market presence, customer experience and financial performance.”
Gordon’s appointment is part of Deloitte’s broader ambition to grow its analytics capabilities. Deloitte plans significant headcount growth beyond the 400 analytics professionals across its UK business, in addition to developing its analytics innovation centres in London and Belfast.
Hammell commented: “The most successful organisations will be those that compete on insight. They will not only have highly responsive, granular analysis of their data, social media and open data but also the executive drive and culture to make rapid decisions to act upon that insight ahead of the competition. In challenging economic conditions those that choose to embrace this opportunity will be best placed to manage volatility and ensure long-term success.”
Gordon commented: “Never has there been such an exciting time to be involved in analytics. The next 24-months will be pivotal, particularly as analytics moves from being used by an elite few to being a requirement to do business. Deloitte’s combined expertise, technology capabilities and commitment to analytics will truly help raise the bar in terms of the firm’s market position.”
