Neudata is pleased to announce that Ian Webster has joined the firm as Senior Vice President. In this London-based role he enhances the Neudata team in building relationships with the firm’s savvy buy-side investment management clients, as well as the expanding roster of alternative data providers seeking to monetize data.
“I am delighted to join the incredible team at Neudata. Neudata have a fascinating position at the epicentre of the explosion in the number of funds using independently-produced research and data,” said Webster. “In particular I’m excited about Neudata’s opportunity to evolve the fragmented network of alternative data providers and investors into a well-structured marketplace, saving time and effort for all involved. Having run a data provider in this space for several years, I’m also keen to explore all the different ways we can help this side of the market.”
Webster holds an MA in Mathematics from the University of Oxford and a Saltire Fellowship in Entrepreneurship from Babson College in Wellesley, Massachusetts. He most recently worked as the Chief Customer Officer at SaaS platform startup Big Data for Humans, leading the commercial activities.
