Exabel is excited to announce the appointment of Andreas Aglen as its new CEO. As one of the first employees of Exabel and having most recently served as COO and Head of Research, he led the strategy and execution of Exabel's institutional investor and data partnership businesses, including launching over 25 partnerships with alternative data vendors.
Prior to joining Exabel, Aglen worked within McKinsey's commercial and strategy practice, leading C-suite consulting engagements with Fortune 500 companies throughout Europe and the United States. He holds an M.Sc in Industrial Economics and Technology Management from Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU).
Andreas Aglen, CEO, spoke on the appointment to the role: “The growth of alternative data continues to create a wealth of opportunity for investment managers looking to achieve an edge in their investment decisions, and Exabel is committed to building the technology that enables this critical process.
“Whether it’s understanding incentive earnings for the gig economy with Gridwise, tracking margin compression on thousands of consumer products using Ascential’s data, or anticipating the tech sector’s forward demand using firmographics from our partners Linkup and Revelio, we are constantly searching for data partnerships that can enrich the mosaic of our investment clients.
Aglen added further: “As we build on our data partnerships and expand our product sets, our focus will be on delivering new capabilities for investment firms who are seeking not only to expedite value discovery in their data, but leverage this in truly differentiated ways as part of their research.
“Connecting our data partnerships to the right firms in the right way continues to be an essential part of our mission, and we look forward to building out further relationships with growing,as well as niche and undiscovered, data providers in the space.”
