Factual’s Data Rockstar: Bill Michels

It’s not every day that data is celebrated, but when it is, Factual wants to be a part of the party! Yesterday the Interactive Advertising Bureau and its Data Center of Excellence announced the winners of the second annual IAB Data Rockstar Awards at their Data Symposium , and our SVP of Product and Partnerships Bill Michels was named one of five winners.

The Data Rockstar Awards honor those who have done outstanding work with data. Based on excellence, creativity and forward-thinking approaches to solving problems in data science and technology, winners of the Data Rockstar Awards have made a proven impact within their businesses and industries.

Through his work here at Factual, Bill has helped to shape the way product owners, developers and marketers use data within their respective industries. Data enables every human interaction with the digital world to be personalized and made better, and Bill’s work ensures that Factual is the company behind that data for the world’s biggest companies.

As Factual’s SVP of product and partnerships, Bill guides our product roadmap, guides a team of more than 70 engineers, product managers, and designers, and has spearheaded landmark partnerships with companies including Apple, Facebook, Uber, Twitter, Qualcomm, and more. He has a rare combination of product vision, business expertise and charismatic leadership which he offers to everyone at Factual.

We’re proud to have many data rockstars on our team and look forward to more innovation to come from Factual in 2018!
