Honorable alumni (aka Hall of Famers)

Before we play something off the new album, we thought we should revisit some hits. Number ones. Also known as previous Data Stewards Day winners. Behold, the legends:

Barbara Deemer

Barbara Deemer

Described as a “one-woman powerhouse” when it comes to business data, Barbara has held a multitude of positions at Sallie Mae and is their current chief data steward. She was nominated – and won the 2011 Stewie – because she’s able to combine her extensive wealth of information with a likable, friendly, genuine personality.


Falguni Sanghani

Falguni Sanghani

Described by her co-workers as a “real dynamo when it comes to data,” Falguni is clearly a data steward standout. She churns through countless rows of data to find (and fix) data quality issues, settling for nothing less than perfection. Says one of her teammates, “She inspires me to dig deeper, know more and never settle for anything but the best outcome of any scenario. She makes our job fun and keeps our data clean and clients happy.” There’s no question that Falguni, the 2012 Data Steward of the Year, is a multitasker, a go-getter – and a true inspiration to those around her.
