West Monroe Partners, a North American business and technology consultancy, has added two experienced advisors to its Advanced Analytics practice. Brent Breithaupt and Mark Williams join the firm as directors, based in the firm’s Chicago office.
Brent Breithaupt joins West Monroe Partners from Perficient, a technology consulting firm focused on enterprise software solutions, for which he was director and leader of the IBM Business Analytics practice. He has more than 18 years of experience in management consulting and technology implementation, with among others JCB Partners*, InStranet and Draft/FCB.
Prior to joining West Monroe Partners, Mark Williams served Analytics8, for which he was vice president of data management and analytics. Prior to that, Williams was founder and CEO of two consultancies: EdSpectrum, a technology-based consultancy for public education systems that included cloud-based, ready-made data warehouses with comprehensive analytics; and Executive Intelligence, a business intelligence consulting firm specialising in predictive analysis, hosted data warehouse design, and implementation.
In their new role, both Breithaupt and Williams will focus on technology transformations, analytics and business intelligence solutions. They join the firm as directors, based in the firm’s Chicago office. “Across industries, our clients are seeking to unlock the value of their data to enhance performance and create advantage, and the significant attention around big data and predictive analytics is creating urgency for them to act,” says Greg Layok, senior director and leader of West Monroe Partners’ Technology and Advanced Analytics practices. “In Brent Breithaupt and Mark Williams, we gain skilled consultants, leaders, and innovators with consummate track records for delivering high-value, pragmatic advanced analytics solutions.”
“West Monroe Partners’ unique blend of technology and business acumen has created a winning formula for bringing together traditional information management, big data, and predictive analytics to drive greater value from data,” says Williams. “This is a tremendous opportunity to be part of a team that is making a real impact for our clients.”
