Manca Vitorino started her career as a financial markets’ journalist for Thomson Reuters in Slovenia, before joining commodity intelligence service ICIS (part of RELX group) in London in 2009.
After four years covering the European energy markets, she moved into a data leadership role by illustrating the opportunity improved data management practices would bring to the business. The career pivot started with the implementation of data visualisation software to help journalists discover the stories in ICIS industry data. It continued through improved and automated data collection practices, implementation of RPA software before moving deeper into development of a comprehensive data strategy to enable business transformation and growth.
As ICIS Director of data, Manca is now focusing on the development of a data culture through implementation of a comprehensive data literacy programme, enabling all ICIS staff to ask questions and make decisions based on data.
