Neustar names chief data and analytics officer
Sterling-based information services provider Neustar has named Venkat Achanta chief data and analytics officer. He will be based in San Francisco.
Achanta was most recently Walmart’s chief data officer where he was responsible for the company’s data and analytics delivery platforms.
He also has served as senior vice president, global head of analytics and big data at AIG; vice president, enterprise data services at Capital One and vice president, global product development and delivery at Experian.
Last month, Neustar announced plans to split in two. One company will consist of the majority of Neustar’s information services, and the other will focus on providing order management and numbering services.
Neustar provides cloud-based information services and analytics.
