Pogoni will head up the data science team enabling and unlocking data science as a supplementary service for other teams (CX and Research) and as a standalone service for bespoke client projects.
Pogoni said: “Although the people and place are familiar, this role and the team’s structure are entirely different – and what attracted me back to Perceptive.
