VP Business Development - VIQTOR DAVIS
The Experian Data Excellence Award
Guy is VP Business Development at data industry pioneers VIQTOR DAVIS. With almost two decades of experience as a data management consultant, Guy is now in his fifth year with VIQTOR DAVIS, where he’s a passionate evangelist for innovation in the way in which organisations leverage and protect their data assets.
Prior to joining VIQTOR DAVIS (then Entity Group) in 2014, he spent seven years with Capita as the lead consultant for its inaugural information management practice, building a practice that went on to deliver data-led success for organisations including Transport for London, the BBC and the Office For National Statistics. This was followed by three years in a senior advisory role for a global systems integrator, providing strategic insight and execution expertise for customers including GSK and the DWP.
Since joining VIQTOR DAVIS, Guy has led strategic data engagements with complex organisations as diverse as PwC, the EU, AXA Insurance and the UK Home Office. He’s currently responsible for the development of long-term relationships across VIQTOR DAVIS’s entire UK customer base, alongside his ongoing advisory work. He also leads the popular blog series ‘#datachangemakers’ which features insightful interviews with leaders and influencers from the data arena.
Guy’s philosophy of data innovation is firmly rooted in the data management methodology first described in Entity Group’s ground-breaking book Crossing the Data Delta published in 2016. He is passionate about enabling organisations to strike the balance between obligation and opportunity, between what must be done in order to safeguard valuable data versus what can be done to drive innovation and high-value business insight.
