Partner, Data Science Practice
Sukiran is an accomplished leader in the analytics space with over 18 years of experience across multiple business functions. After commencing his career as a marketing analytics professional, it is his very passion of taking analytics to non-traditional and underserved areas that led him to take up new roles in creating analytics practices across risk and compliance, operations and HR.
He was instrumental in creating the Centralized Credit Risk Modeling, Operations Analytics, HR Analytics, and Financial Crime Compliance Analytics practices for a major bank. During his stint at the risk analytics teams, Sukiran was deeply inspired by the importance of operations risk that face today’s businesses as a whole and chose to further expand his knowledge of analytics applications across the associated domains. The operations analytics team created by him made major contributions in improving the bank’s approach to servicing productivity, service quality, and procurement process. His initial work on compliance operations analytics gradually caught the attention of the organization and led to the creation of a full-blown financial crime compliance analytics function focused on major areas such as transaction monitoring optimization, sanctions screening and payment screening.
Sukiran holds a Bachelor and Masters degree in Statistics from Indian Statistical Institute with a major in Mathematical Statistics and Probability.
