Kirk Borne Joins DataPrime to Help Develop the Next Generation of Data Analytic Professionals.

Online PR News – 12-April-2021 – Washington, DC – In the world of Data Science, there is no one more respected and admired than Kirk Borne. He’s a social media icon and influencer – the one you want retweeting your great idea. He’s the one you want in the room coaching and mentoring the next generation of data scientists. After departing from global technology consulting firm Booz Allen Hamilton at the end of March, Borne could have easily chosen a well-established big tech company as his next venture, but he wanted to lend his expertise to an innovative global start-up. DataPrime is changing the game in the high-demand data science industry by matching the data utilization needs of companies with the data professionals best suited to deliver results.

Borne’s new position will be as Chief Science Officer. He’s charged with making data fluency, dynamic data-driven application systems, and the intelligent edge a part of the daily vernacular. More importantly, however, he is responsible for mentoring the next generation of analytics and data science professionals.

“I've worked at a private research institute, a national lab, a very large consulting firm, and was a tenured University professor, the position with DataPrime is the perfect convergence of all of my life’s experiences. It offers me the opportunity to be curious, creative, and engage in initiatives around data literacy while also educating the next generation of data scientists,” said Borne.

Kirk is an elected Fellow of the International Astrostatistics Association for his lifelong contributions to big data research in astronomy, a Legacy Fellow of the American Astronomical Society for achievement and extraordinary service to the field of astronomy and enhancing humanity’s scientific understanding of the universe, and an international keynote speaker on topics such as: data science, AI, and analytics, and an influencer on social media (@KirkDBorne). Kirk is the big catch for any tech firm.

“Having Kirk join DataPrime is HUGE. We want Kirk to do what Kirk does best – and that’s speak, engage, and teach on Data Science,” said Aaron Burciaga, Chairman, DataPrime. “Kirk is the thought leader in this industry that is shaking things up and we want him up front.”
