Description

Data, it’s what many people refer to as the ‘new oil’. It’s supposed to provide the unbiased insights companies need to make key decisions. But extracting those insights is easier said than done, and that’s what today’s guest, Kris Makuch, aims to change. Kris is the founder of datakris, a consultancy that interprets and uses data to help companies retain and acquire new customers.

Originally from Poland, Kris’ family immigrated to Canada and settled in Toronto when he was just 2 years old. He caught the video game bug early on when he received a Sega Genesis, and has been a lifelong gamer ever since.

He spent a year studying geography at Carleton University before pivoting to Advertising & Marketing at Sheridan College.

His first break in the media industry came at Mindshare, where was on the team handling Walmart’s media buying & planning. He moved deeper into the retail world, taking a data analyst role at EB Games.

From there Kris made the jump to the Omincom Media Group, taking on a series of data science roles at PHD and Red Magnet. He’s making all that experience available through his own consultancy, datakris.
