Scott Schlesinger has joined PA Consulting (PA), the consultancy that’s bringing ingenuity to life, as a Partner leading PA’s US Data and Analytics team. Scott will manage PA’s data analytics, business intelligence, and AI capabilities for clients across the US.
Scott is a results-oriented technology executive and a recognized thought leader, speaker, and author. He has held several senior leadership positions with major systems integration and consulting organizations. Scott served as the Chief Analytics Officer and Global Head of AI & Analytics Advisory for Cognizant Digital, was a Partner/Principal at EY, where he led the Data & Analytics team for the Americas, and led the North America Business Information Management Group (now Data & Analytics) at Capgemini.
Organizations that use data effectively have a clear advantage when it comes to improving operational performance, driving revenue streams, identifying new markets, understanding customers, managing profitability, cutting costs and monitoring risk. Recently PA’s data and analytics teams built a national pediatric data registry to improve children’s health for the American Academy of Pediatrics, predicted the spread of COVID-19 to safeguard Unilever’s global ecosystem, and co-developed a platform to enable better food buying decisions for food data start-up TeakOrigin.
