Delivering corporate goals through data, analytics and technology takes a special combination of vision, leadership, discipline, and endurance. That’s exactly what Shree brings to the table. He’s been at the center of highly complex transformational initiatives and merger integrations for Fortune 100 companies – with many successes to show for it. For example, as chief architect at Walgreens, he led the ICD-9 to ICD-10 remediation program spanning more than 1,000 systems across key business functions.
His track record for innovation and value creation extends more than 20 years, fueled by a focus on data and analytics strategy, enterprise architecture, data science and big data platform engineering, mobile and cloud platforms, and digital transformation. He uses that expertise today to advise private equity investors with respect to due diligence and post-close value creation for potential acquisitions or carve outs.
In his previous leadership role with Syndigo, he led the Data and Advanced Analytics practice across 10+ acquisitions in two years. He was elected to the Global Standards Architecture board, where he collaborated with global leaders to develop standards for various industries. He holds a master’s degree in analytics from the University of Chicago and a bachelor’s degree in engineering.
He loves playing beach volleyball and cricket and is the founder of the West Loop Cricket Association.
He is a member of Chicago Arch Angels and an advisor/mentor to multiple startups, working with founders and entrepreneurs to grow their companies.
He also likes to teach and develop talent. He is an adjunct professor with the University of Chicago’s Master’s Analytics program and Northwestern University’s Master’s in Data Science program, for which he develops and teaches courses in data science, data engineering, and data visualization. He is also part of the Google Faculty Institute and AWS Educate.
