Raidiam, the data sharing ecosystem pioneers who continue to drive the world’s most exciting Open Data initiatives, are delighted to announce that Jamie Leach has joined the company as Open Data Strategist.
Jamie brings her exceptional and diverse experience of data sharing approaches to the team, gained in a multitude of sectors including banking and defence, and has played a leading role in shaping and developing data sharing policies globally. Her addition to the Raidiam team further bolsters the company’s presence in the Australasia and Asia-Pacific regions.
Raidiam has been at the forefront of developments in Open Data since 2016 – from delivering the world’s first Open Banking Trust Framework in the UK, to enabling Brazil to realise its Open Data dream by developing and powering both the Open Finance and Open Insurance interoperable ecosystems. Clients include global regulators, consortiums, and enterprises with highly diverse use cases ranging from customer onboarding, digital identity verification to secure data sharing and payments.
Jamie commented: “As a data technologist at heart, my passion is about exploiting its transformative potential, particularly the sharing of quality data to enhance experiences or to create greater efficiencies. In my role as Open Data Strategist, I look forward to working with our clients and communities to support them in maximising the value of their data and leveraging it in a privacy-centric, transparent, and fit-for purpose manner.”
Barry O’Donohoe, Raidiam’s Co-Founder and CEO, commented: “We’re delighted to have Jamie join our growing team of eminent experts. A trusted adviser by many, she is known and highly respected around the world for her deep knowledge and understanding in the field of data sharing. As a global organisation active in a number of markets, having Jamie based in Australia further expands our presence in that region and enables us to support more clients in their own digital transformations. This is a key time in the region, in particular for Australia as the country continues to develop and roll out the Consumer Data Right and capitalise on the benefits and opportunities of Open Data and Digital Identity”
Jamie holds a number of roles including Regional Director for Australasia FDATA and is the Founder of Open Data Australia. She also regularly advises and represents the public sector and private clients on data strategy, privacy and protection, governance practices, and data quality.
