  • Data & Analytics, USA

“I joined LSEG three years ago, when the product I work on – Yield Book, a leading risk analytics platform – was acquired by the Group. Since then LSEG has really helped us propel the product forward, expand our footprint and enhance our technical capabilities. It’s exciting to be able to grow our development group here in Buffalo, USA and expand its contribution in the analytics space.

I would characterise my colleagues as smart people who are generous with their time and always willing to teach, train and support their peers. LSEG is very collaborative, but there’s also a culture of growth and there are plenty of ways in which you can showcase your skills and contribute as an individual, so you never feel lost within the organisation.

While I started out in software development, over time my role has become more people-focused by managing technical people and I feel like my personal strength is being able to find new talent and plug them into our analytics development group so that they can contribute to the team as well as developing both personally and professionally. Part of that includes engaging more broadly with the communities in which we operate. I’m on the LSEG Foundation Committee for North America and here in Buffalo I head up our charity team, where we focus on fundraising and volunteering for local community projects. As well as making a positive impact on the charities that we work with, I believe that our community work has a huge benefit in building networks and connecting our people too.”
