Crypto platform Zumo hires first chief data and analytics officer
Edinburgh-based crypto platform Zumo has appointed Vicky Byrom as its first chief data and analytics officer (CDAO) with a focus on making data analytics “accessible, transparent, secure and useful to the organisation”.
Byrom has more than 20 years of experience delivering data and analytics projects across both private and public sector organisations.
She joins Zumo from paytech firm Modulr and will be responsible for setting up a data governance committee that will track and map data across the company, ensuring new sources of data are harnessed and utilised in adherence to regulatory frameworks.
Byrom will also oversee the improvement of data literacy across the organisation, identifying opportunities to develop data-driven approaches to business challenges.
Speaking on her appointment, Byrom says she’s a “self-confessed data nerd”, having spent her career bringing “profitable order to data anarchy”.
She says data is “a big asset that can inform customer and business processes” as Zumo moves from “start-up to scale-up”.
Zumo’s chief people and culture officer Dagmara Aldridge adds: “Shared, trusted data breaks down silos and provides real-time visibility into activities across the organisation, enabling sustainable growth, aiding automation and faster delivery of value to our end customers.”
