MEET OUR FOUNDER + CEO
STACEY SCHWARCZ. My goal in life is to create order from chaos, from corporate data to physical spaces. As a data scientist and strategist I excel at bringing people together to understand the processes that create data, get better insights from data, and solve business problems.
I have over 10 years of experience in analytics and operations in both the public and private sector. I have worked in a variety of industries including financial services, management consulting, engineering, and transportation. I built an analytics function and managed a data science team for a Fortune 500 company and I’ve held several senior operations management and strategy roles.
Over the course of my career I’ve become intimately familiar with the impact of poor data strategy around corporate data and operational systems and the data wilderness this creates. I founded Ariel Analytics to guide companies in developing and adopting better data strategy so that they can maximize the value of their data in a cost effective and systematic manner.
I hold graduate degrees in engineering and data analytics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and City University of New York (CUNY). Connect with me on LinkedIn
THE NAME BEHIND THE COMPANY
The inspiration behind our name is our Founder and CEO, Stacey Schwarcz’s beagle mix, Ariel. Ariel is an avid hiker and a certified therapy dog who loves to visit the local nursing home and make people happy. She has persevered through many challenges in life (including being in a shelter and having knee surgery) and is an inspiration to all who meet her. I wish I could say that she's a great guide though the wilderness, but while she has a fantastic memory and is a great communicator, search and rescue is not her calling.
