Data scientist Marco Bressan joins UniCredit as Group Data And Analytics Officer
Marco Bressan, a data scientist with proven experience of data driven transformation, will be joining UniCredit on 1st February 2021 as Group Data and Analytics Officer. Marco will drive UniCredit’s roll-out of advanced analytics and use of new technologies to support and enhance our commercial activities, product and services portfolio and internal controls.
Marco will be working closely with Roberto Monachino, who launched the bank’s Data & Analytics function in 2008 and is currently Group Data Officer. Roberto will retire on 1st March 2022; this overlap will make for a smooth transition and Roberto will continue to provide his valuable contribution to the evolution of the Group Data & Analytics Office’s activities.
Commenting on the appointment, Wouter Devriendt, said: “Marco has outstanding knowledge and skills in driving transformational projects in large corporates and his experience of working in data driven start-ups will bring an entrepreneurial and can-do spirit to the Group. Marco was one of the founding members of our Transformation & Innovation Advisory Board. This is really helpful as it means he is familiar with the bank and will be able to hit the ground running. Marco’s initial focus will be to strengthen our group-wide data culture whilst building a best in class team across UniCredit to ensure we remain a long-term pan-European winner in a rapidly changing banking environment.”
