John SpensDirector, Data and AI - North America
I'm fascinated by the challenges of extracting intelligence from data, and applying that intelligence to create powerful applications that change businesses. I joined Thoughtworks as a Consultant in 2003, and led a number of strategic projects before becoming General Manager for Chicago and New York. In 2012, I led the launch of our data analytics practice in North America, and in 2019 I became Director of Data Strategy, Engineering and Analytics.
I have two grown-up sons, and live in a small town north of New York City with my wife and cats.
