TYSONS, Va. and CHARLESTON, S.C., June 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- To address opportunities in data management and business intelligence, RiskSpan, Inc. (www.riskspan.com) announced it has hired Ramesh Mugalam to lead its Data Management-Advanced Analytics Practice and has opened a new Analytics Center of Excellence in Charleston, SC.
Earlier this month, Bernadette Kogler, President of RiskSpan (http://www.riskspan.com/team-bios/2015/4/9/bernadette-kogler) announced that Mugalam had joined the firm: "In recruiting Ramesh to join the RiskSpan management team, we found the right leader at the right time to solve some of today's biggest data challenges. Ramesh is a tremendous add for RiskSpan given his background and skill-set that aligns so well to our core competencies."
Ramesh (http://linkd.in/1BKUGRD) was most recently with IBM – Strategy & Analytics Practice. In this role he led client strategy on engagements in the financial services sector, with a focus on data management, including data architecture and large-scale data governance. Ramesh's work also included delivering IBM data analytics solutions for clients and managing data transformation initiatives. Ramesh has architected data discovery and reporting solutions for Big Data solutions and has worked with clients to develop solutions for unstructured and dark data sets. Prior to IBM, Ramesh was with LexisNexis – Risk Solutions where he was responsible for growth strategy with data analytics products and client program management.

Following immediately on the hiring of Ramesh Mugalam, RiskSpan opened a new Analytics Center of Excellence in Charleston, SC.
