Brandon Fitz-Gerald

After completing a degree in Chemistry and a PGCE at the University of Nottingham, Brandon looked for a slight change of direction. Throughout his degree and jobs he had in the years following, Data Analysis always interested him, and after coming across the Data School and Tableau it seemed like a perfect opportunity.

Outside of work Brandon enjoys playing dodgeball and other niche sports.
