Inspired by a pinnacle moment

As a BI and data analytics leader for one of the world’s most iconic food retailers, McDonalds Corp., Tony Lopykinski led the strategy and roll-out of the company’s first enterprise data warehouse (EDW). This massive effort involved defining a three-year business roadmap that detailed the information architecture, technical infrastructure, and organization resource requirements for success. Tony grew his team from six to 60 and McDonald’s new EDW enabled new standard analytics and business intelligence capabilities that reached 30,000 retail locations and corporate personnel. 

This monumental career achievement inspired a vision Tony couldn’t ignore: to make analytics achievable for any enterprise, wherever they were in their data maturity. After 12 years at McDonald’s, in 2008 Tony founded Mavent Analytics (formerly Maven Advisors) to bring his vision to life. He discovered a particularly high demand among midmarket companies for trusted analytics leadership – not only for improving data and insight, but also for managing the organizational change needed to ensure lasting impact. 

Eventually, clients turned to Tony and his analytics consultants to help grow their internal teams. This began Mavent Analytics’ natural evolution to vetting and filling key data and analytics positions. Tony partnered with Mike Alaimo, an experienced talent acquisition leader with a stellar track record of outsourced recruiting, to launch Mavent’s Talent Planning & Acquisition services practice, closing the value loop for clients. Today, Mavent drives business transformation with analytics excellence across an organization’s entire analytics journey. From planning to people, Maven has become the go-to data, analytics and talent consulting partner to create lasting business value and impact.
