We are pleased to announce that Matthew Hoying will begin as Stanford’s new Data Governance Manager on August 15!
To take a next crucial step in the development of Business Intelligence, the Systems Governance Group (SGG) approved a new position proposed by the BI Steering Committee, a Data Governance Manager (DGM). The DGM will develop and administer a new data governance process at Stanford across our many administrative systems, databases, and organizations. This person will be responsible for data quality processes and programs, and will work with subject area data stewards and technical staff to ensure that data is collected, stored, shared and reported accurately, in accord with the needs of the University. This will be Stanford’s first long-term, systematized effort on data quality. The DGM will also work cooperatively with the committee responsible for data privacy and security, which has been in place for many years now.
The job was posted in late January, and after a long search process, we are pleased to announce the hiring of Matthew Hoying. Matthew will begin his duties on August 15. Matthew comes to Stanford from UPS, where he has worked for the past two years to build a data governance structure and capability. He brings experience and enthusiasm to the job, and is excited to get started!
Matt holds a BS and MEng in Operations Research and Industrial Engineering from Cornell University. Outside of his love for good data, Matt enjoys the outdoors and spends time camping, kayaking or hiking along with many artistic hobbies such as painting, photography, and music. Matt currently lives in Hawthorne, New Jersey and is looking forward to becoming a Californian.
