Amit Shah

Director Corporate Chicago


Amit doesn’t just come to the table with a passion for using data to drive strategy and effective decision-making. He also brings a track record for tangible impact. He led the successful releases of a cloud-based big data platform that allowed 3,500 hospitals across the United States to submit millions of files of patient data, while realizing cost savings of up to $50,000 per hospital. 

Having a broad IT process and analytics background means he knows which levers to pull to meet pressing business needs. For example, he employed data mining techniques to understand COVID-19 affected counties and help drive business decisions for conducting customer surveys and reviews.

Amit is people centric. His strong ability to collaborate with business partners, harness multi-disciplinary teams, and employ agile practices equips him to deliver software and data solutions from strategy and vision through execution and impact.

Amit joined West Monroe from The Joint Commission, where he led enterprise data capabilities ranging from data strategy and governance to advanced analytics, data operations, and privacy and compliance. Previously, he spent 15 years with Accenture where he led Accenture’s estimating and methodology capabilities. He earned a bachelor’s degree in computer engineering and an MBA from the University of Illinois Chicago. He holds Project Management Professional, Scrum Master, Green Belt, SAFe Agilist, and other certifications.

What makes Amit different

He loves traveling and exploring new destinations. His most recent hobby is visiting national parks across the United States. So far, he is been to 23 of 63—and he hopes to check many more off that list. Closer to home, he appreciates having his entire extended family in the Chicagoland area. He is fluent in Gujarati, Hindi, and Marathi.

Where Amit makes an impact

He spent five years of his career with The Joint Commission, a US-based non-profit organization that accredits more than 22,000 US healthcare organizations and programs. His work to develop data and analytics capabilities and business intelligence reporting had a critical impact on health care organizations across United States to improve the quality and safety of care provided to patients.
