Gareth Parkes amongst the most influential people in data

Congratulations to our Head of Data and Analytics, Gareth Parkes, listed amongst the Top 100 most influential people in data by the prestigious DataIQ.

Featuring alongside leading data figures across a multitude of sectors, from insurance and finance through to healthcare and education, this accolade comes as recognition of Gareth’s outstanding contribution to data and analytics in construction. As one of only a handful of industry figures to be included in the highly regarded list, the nomination underscores Gareth’s reputation in the sector.

For the past four and half years, Gareth has been instrumental in developing the use of data at Sir Robert McAlpine, notably by supporting the regular Project:Hack events, run in collaboration with Projecting Success. He is currently involved in the Project Data Analytics Task Force and the development of the Construction Data Trust, to facilitate greater data access across the industry and improve project delivery.

I’m so proud to be recognised alongside such an innovative and inspirational group of people. As the diverse list of nominees shows, when applied effectively, project data analytics can boost performance and productivity across any sector, and to be acknowledged as a champion of the data cause in our specific industry is a real honour.
