Reltio’s technology is unmatched at helping customers transform their business outcomes with unified, reliable, and real-time data to better understand and operate their businesses. In previous roles, I was responsible for creating data lakes, which can be time-consuming and disjointed for many organizations. Joining Reltio allows me the incredible opportunity to work at the center of the data universe and tackle this problem from the other side. I will work with Reltio’s customers to build a platform that delivers the data they need, when and where they need it, to increase revenue and customer lifetime value, cut costs, and improve operational efficiency and reduce risk by simplifying governance and compliance.”
