Roberto Maranca

Job Title: Chief Data Officer

Company: GE Capital

Roberto is an Aeronautical Engineer who had to repurpose himself as IT professional, before responding to the call of Data Management 3 years ago.

Career wise, Roberto has been working for Nissan, Ford and for the last 16 years he has been part of GE Capital.
As Chief Data Officer for their International Division he has been overlooking the implementation of Data Governance and Quality framework, spanning from supporting risk model validation to enabling divestitures and leading their more recent Basel III data initiatives, with a hint of BCBS239.

He is not particularly fond of buzzwords like “Big Data”, but he loves the fact that Data Management is still broadly pioneering with very wide horizons to explore and lands to conquer.
