Financial services giant Macquarie Group is looking to hire a chief data officer to help establish group-wide data management standards.
The role falls under the umbrella of Macquarie’s Financial Management Group (FMG) division, which is based in Sydney.
FMG incorporates Macquarie’s finance, taxation and group treasury units, which are responsible for providing strategic business advice to all parts of the group, including meeting its regulatory compliance and tax obligations.
Within FMG, the chief data officer will directly oversee Macquarie’s corporate data team of about 20 people, which is responsible for the FMG data warehouse platform and, more widely, data quality
The executive will also have access to a 40-member technology and operations support team.
The incoming data boss will be responsible for developing a group-wide unified data management strategy and working with senior executives throughout the group to create policies and standards.
It is unclear whether the appointment is for a new position or a replacement. Macquarie declined to comment.
The appointment comes after the financial services giant announced the end of a year-long search for a chief information officer late last year, poaching Justin Raoul Moffitt for the position.
