Christine Hettinger Photo

Senior Analytics Manager,
Ibotta

Director, Business Intelligence,
Colorado Access

David Napoli has worked with healthcare-related data for 17 years as an analyst, actuary, statistician, research manager, and director. His experience includes evaluation and outcomes studies, ROI analysis, IBNR determination, predictive modeling, risk adjustment methodologies, advanced data visualization, dashboard design and implementation, database development and management, and identifying and evaluating trends and forces in data. David has extensive experience working with claims data, including for Medicaid, Medicare, and Commercial lines of business. He recently held positions of Director of Performance Improvement & Strategic Analytics for a co-op healthcare insurance company and Director of Planning & Analytics for a community health program. David’s educational background includes Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in aeronautical engineering (yes – he was a rocket scientist), and early in his career he realized he desired to concentrate his professional efforts in an industry focused on helping people more than his fondness for space exploration. He also recently completed coursework towards his doctorate in Health Services Research with a focus on Biostatistics at the University of Colorado School of Public Health (All but Dissertation).

Steve Maegley Photo

VP of Data and Business Analysis,
Cachematrix

Steve is VP of Data and Business Analysis for Cachematrix, a Denver based fintech company that provides SaaS software and solutions for large banks and financial institutions. Steve manages the Business Analyst and Database Administrator teams for the company.

His Business Analysis team is responsible for gathering and documenting business requirements, functional requirements and technical specifications for system enhancements and product development. The BAs are also responsible for providing executive data analytics as well as custom, ad-hoc and batch customer reports.

His Database Administrator team is responsible for care and maintenance of Cachematrix’s proprietary databases for their production, UAT and demo environments. This includes database design, data-to-day maintenance, performance tuning, server upgrades, code deployment and custom database code development.

Steve got his start in the financial services industry with a Denver based mutual fund after graduating with a degree from the University of Colorado School of Journalism. Working hard and always taking on new challenges Steve eventually found himself directing teams of application testers, business analysts, system administrators, workflow analysts and information reporting specialists. Usually working within Business Operations rather than Information Technology, Steve has always enjoyed bringing technology into the business to make the company more efficient, reliable and scalable.

Away from the keyboard Steve enjoys armature photography, snowboarding and spending time with his amazing wife and kids.

Amer Tadmori Photo

Senior Manager of Analytics,
TransUnion

Amer has a passion for turning complex topics into easy-to-understand concepts. As a Senior Manager of Analytics at TransUnion, he uses this passion to translate data sets into actionable insights that help clients solve business problems. Amer also really enjoys mentoring his team of analysts. Prior to this role, his work was focused on data analysis in the Consumer Packaged Goods industry and subsequently knows way too much about coffee creamers and frozen lasagna.

He holds a BA in Economics from Colgate University and is currently working towards his Masters in Applied Statistics degree at Colorado State University. In his free time Amer loves hiking his way through the National Parks and snowboarding down Colorado’s local hills.

Andy Ortolan Photo

Data Visualization Consultant,
Slalom Consulting

Andy is currently a data visualization consultant with Slalom Consulting. He has been on a diverse range of projects in his last eight years as a consultant including government data reporting, mergers, divestments, IT Operations, financial reporting, data visualization, analytics go-to-market, and big data ecosystem implementations. He helps clients bridge the gap between their business needs and their data. Andy enjoys putting himself into the mindset of the users of his data visualizations to come up with interfaces that transform the way they carry out their jobs. His sweet spot seems to be in Alliances, where he builds relationships and facilitates partnerships with data and analytics technology and service providers to create solutions that are bigger than the sum of their parts.

Andy found his way to a computer science degree and then analytics through a non-traditional path that began with two years of study in philosophy. A chance college elective convinced him that computer science is a form of philosophy, and seemingly overnight Andy’s world changed from one of words to one of numbers. Above all else, he considers himself a seeker and will be forever indebted to a hacker named Fravia, whose website, Searchlores, kindled a nascent interest and taught him how to find anything in an archived body of data. Fravia is no longer with us, though his perspectives and advice are still invaluable to anyone interested in the philosophy and practice of searching, which are fundamental to analytics.
