Partner, Data and Analytics Lead, Asia Pacific
 // . //  Our People //  Na Zhou

Na is a Singapore-based partner and leads our data and analytics platform in Asia Pacific. She is one of our leading experts on data science and engineering. For several years she worked in London in our Digital practice, collaborating with major European financial institutions in areas such as digital banking, pricing and risk modelling, and risk management. Nowadays, she works across multiple industry verticals, helping our clients tackle their most complex business issues using cutting-edge data and analytic methods in an efficient and scalable manner.

I’ve always been drawn to the new technologies and methods in data science and enjoy the continuous learning that is required to keep up in this field

Through her work, Na has learned to truly understand what it takes to deliver impact and the importance of chasing through the whole ‘data to value’ chain with the end goal in mind. Na has also spent several years working as a Chief Data and Analytics Officer for both a major UK general insurer and a start-up digital bank. Here, she led the design and development of their data strategies, helping both businesses build robust and inciteful data analytics capabilities, that drive business value.

The biggest challenges companies are facing around creating value via data are no longer technical, but are behavioral and cultural. We demonstrate how this change may be promoted through delivering examples of success, setting new expectations for data-driven decisioning and continually developing ‘data analytics muscles’ to set them up for future growth

Na holds a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering from TsingHua University and a MSc in Economics from London School of Economics. Outside of work, Na enjoys cooking, reading sci-fi, cycling, the arts, and doing the occasional Kaggle competition.
