We have a winner!
Meet Lee Strode, our 2014 Data Steward of the Year.
As the second winner in a row hailing from Capital One, Lee confirms our suspicions that this U.S.-based financial institution has its act together when it comes to managing data. As an MIS analyst manager, Lee is known for solving data challenges such as timeliness, incorrect or incomplete data loads – and keeping everyone informed when a change might impact processes.
Lee’s co-workers describe her as “vigilant, responsive, proactive and invaluable to the success of our business process success.” And that, to us, is what data stewardship is all about. Rock on, Lee.
This year’s nominees came from a host of industries. And for the first, time nominations came from four continents! That’s right – data stewards are rock stars all over the world.
Special thanks to all our judges, as well as to everyone who submitted a nomination this year. You have proven yet again that there are countless data stewards out there who work hard to keep the band together.
