Director & Program Manager Bryan Jones is a former federal government employee with over 31 years of experience successfully managing and leading programs and people. Bryan’s focus is to translate the value of analytics and develop an analytics business strategy for government agencies and commercial business operations.
Prior to joining Elder Research, Bryan was the Deputy Assistant Inspector General for the US Postal Service’s Office of Inspector General where he developed their first data analytics unit. This is where he discovered his passion: the combining of business knowledge with the technology and science of data mining to help transform the way government does business. Under Bryan’s leadership the data analytics team grew from 6 employees to 40, from an annual budget of $0 to over $3.5 million, and was elevated from a small support group to directly supporting executive leadership. With Return on Investment of over 10-fold and with analytics driving strategic planning at USPS OIG, many other government agencies benchmarked Bryan’s work and now use his blueprint to build their own capabilities or to improve their analytics operations in ways that are measurable and transformational.
