Unilever's Andy Hill named most influential person in data in 2022
DataIQ has chosen Andy Hill, chief data officer at Unilever, as the most influential person in data and analytics in the 2022 edition of the DataIQ 100.
With 2.5 billion people using Unilever products every day, Andy has spearheaded the organisation's data-driven response to ongoing supply chain disruption while enabling future growth. Andy pins his success on "an incredibly strong team, great partners and an executive leadership team who are strong advocates of a future-fit Unilever with data at the heart of all we do."
This year's list demonstrates extensive diversity, equity and inclusivity, and DataIQ is delighted to recognise six female leaders within this year's top 10. While DataIQ does not capture data on how list members identify in terms of gender or race, so is unable to profile the full list statistically, well over 20 nationalities are represented and there is also considerable neuro-diversity - a hidden dimension of DEI but one that is particularly prevalent in and important to the data industry.
Meanwhile, Major George McCrea's inclusion within the top 10 serves as a timely reminder of the increasingly important role played by geospatial data in the military context. Fellow Royal Engineer Captain Luke Parker has been recognised within a new category celebrating the next generation of data leaders.
David Reed, knowledge and strategy director, DataIQ: "Data offers answers to so many of the world's pressing problems - energy and food supplies, sustainability, net zero, national security. But those answers can only be formed, delivered and acted on when people step up to the task, provide inspirational leadership, engage with their stakeholders, and see projects through. Everyone in the 2022 edition of the DataIQ 100 is doing just that. They are leaders because their teams choose to follow them."
The list identified as the top 10 individuals in data and analytics are:
