Get to know our speakers:
Danylo Pawluk, Director Business Intelligence, Wolseley Canada
Pawluk leads Wolseley’s BI operations across Canada and has spearheaded Wolseley’s transformation from an on-premises legacy data pipeline to a modern all cloud data platform leveraging Azure and Tableau. The result has been transformational for internal insights, as well for driving significant sales success through the widespread adoption of Tableau by the sales organization. This is especially impressive given that Wolseley is a very traditional industry distributor. Prior to Wolseley, Pawluk drove data projects at Sears Canada and TD. He holds an economics degree and business analytics certificates from the University of Toronto.
Steve Benteau, CTO, Precima
As chief technology officer, Benteau leads the strategy and delivery of Precima’s Retail SaaS Analytics platform across North America and Europe. He heads up product development, support and operations, and data integration along with research into new and advancing technologies. Benteau also led Precima’s adoption of AWS technology in its move to the cloud. Benteau’s passion for building great technical teams and focus on client satisfaction has resulted in success in almost 100 analytics and data projects at Precima, MNP, and Telus. He holds a Masters of Management Sciences from University of Waterloo and a Bachelor of Commerce from Memorial University of Newfoundland.
