Boulder, Colorado — March 1, 2016 — BDS Analytics today announces the addition of Tom Jones to its senior leadership team as the Director of Analytics.  Jones will lead the Analytics department for BDS at the company headquarters in Boulder, CO. He is responsible for ensuring the accurate transformation of raw data into actionable market intelligence and for analysis and reporting services for dispensary, grower, producer and brand clients.

“Tom’s breadth of experience, from multi-location retail store owner/operator, to market research to retail sales tracking analyst, made him the perfect candidate for this position,” said co-founder and Vice President Liz Stahura. “Tom brings the analytical rigor and mathematical expertise that our high standards demand.”

Most recently, Jones worked as a senior analyst in retail tracking at The NPD Group and in a senior market research position with Boulder-based data house E Source Companies LLC.

“As a business owner early in my career, I learned the value of good, reliable data,” said Jones. “That experience and learning helped me move into progressively more challenging analytics roles, and now I’ve found the perfect position. I am excited to use a large toolkit of math-based processes to help BDS provide robust, high-value market insight.”
