Bart Van Der Vurst
Today, Bart is Partner and leading the Data Science & Strategy team. His focus area is to guide organizations in translating their business needs & challenges into working tech-enabled solutions. In a world driven by technology (and buzzwords), his both business- and tech- background allow him to act as a translator for clients helping them understand and focus.
Bart graduated as a Master in Business Engineering with a specialization in Marketing Advanced Analytics in 2013. Bart started his professional career as a consultant at McKinsey & Company where he focused on taking the analytical lead on international client projects. After 2 years, Bart moved to Paris and started working at ‘Africa Internet Group’ (now called Jumia - NYSE ) as first Head of Marketing Intelligence and later the entire Data & Intelligence team - 15 men strong - managing both BI analysts, BI techs and data science.
In his current role, Bart combines a strong business experience with strong technical skills. He regularly works with IT Director, BI managers and C-level management to clarify the current challenges and ambitions & helps define a roadmap trajectory for organizations to embrace Data & AI opportunities.
In his free time, Bart goes to the gym & runs (at least) once a week. He loves to cook and finds his energy in spending time with friends and family. Bart likes boardgames and is passionate about Italy and its red wine.
