Leading the new office is Jeremy Ng, who brings a wealth of experience in analytics, operational excellence, and team leadership to the firm. He most recently worked at Quantium, where he led the FMCG practice in Melbourne. In the role, he built a high-performing team in the region, and spearheaded initiatives at clients that resulted in significant improvements in productivity and customer satisfaction.

“We are delighted to welcome Jeremy,” said Gu and Ly. “His proven track record of driving strong commercial and operational outcomes for clients and fostering a culture of innovation aligns perfectly with our EdgeRed’s vision for growth and success.”

On his new role, Ng stated: “I look forward to deepening our relationships with our clients and partners in Melbourne, and working together on innovative ways to use data to make a difference in our communities.”

EdgeRed has hit the ground running in Melbourne, already bagging a number of greenfield clients and assembling a team of six data scientists. Ng: “The team is rapidly taking shape, and we’re on the lookout for fresh talent.”
