OAKLAND, Calif., April 12, 2016 — First San Francisco Partners, Inc. (FSFP), a business advisory and enterprise information management (EIM) consultancy dedicated to the cost-effective delivery of highly customized and business-driven integrated information management solutions, today announced that Malcolm Chisholm has joined the company as Chief Innovation Officer.
In this role, Malcolm will be responsible for driving the strategy and inventive delivery of right-sized, results-oriented and data-centric methodologies, tools and processes aligned with clients’ data governance, information management, analytics, data architecture and big data challenges.
The integration of the two leading information management consultancies will significantly expand services, expertise and reach to companies struggling to maximize their data assets and achieve better business outcomes.
“The need to harvest an organization’s information assets are great, and many organizations don’t understand how to use the tools they have today to achieve the results they want tomorrow. Without this knowledge, they don’t know what is required to meet their unique use cases,” said Chisholm. “I’m excited to join FSFP’s highly skilled, experienced and dedicated team of thought leaders and to enable data-driven success for clients using the company’s focus on innovative EIM solutions anchored by data-centric processes.”
“We are extremely pleased to welcome Malcolm to the FSFP team,” said Kelle O’Neal, Founder and CEO of FSFP. “His extensive experience across the data management spectrum, combined with his proven insight across a number of key vertical markets, will be instrumental in assuring our clients continue to receive the best information management services that create real business impact.”
Malcolm brings more than 25 years’ experience in data management, having worked in a variety of sectors including finance, insurance, manufacturing, government, defense and intelligence, pharmaceuticals and retail. His deep experience spans specializations in data governance, master/reference data management, metadata engineering, business rules management/execution, data architecture and design, and the organization of Enterprise Information Management. Malcolm is a well-known presenter at conferences in the US and Europe, writes columns in trade journals, and has authored the books: Managing Reference Data in Enterprise Databases; How to Build a Business Rules Engine; and Definitions in Information Management. In 2011, Malcolm was presented with the prestigious DAMA International Professional Achievement Award for contributions to Master Data Management.
