Essentia Analytics (Essentia), a provider of behavioural data analytics and consulting for professional investors, has hired Doug Dundas as chief marketing officer (CMO).

Bringing more than 20 years of financial and marketing experience to Essentia, Dundas (pictured), is responsible for leading and streamlining the fintech firm’s global marketing and communications activities.
 
Before joining Essentia, Dundas held CMO roles at Octagon Asset Management, an investment firm that specializes in structured trade and commodity finance, and Marsh Inc., a professional services firm offering insurance broking and risk management.
 
“We are excited to welcome Doug aboard as our first CMO, just as the investment management industry is starting to focus energy on proving and improving investment skill,” says Clare Flynn Levy, CEO of Essentia Analytics. “Essentia is the best-of-breed solution in the behavioural analytics space, and Doug’s pedigree and focused leadership style will ensure our marketing and communications are equally best-of-breed.”
 
Dundas came to Marsh in 2012 from Doug Dundas Communications, a boutique consultancy he launched in late 2007 specialising in the unique communications needs of financial services firms that serve institutional and high-net-worth clients. Prior to this, he held leadership roles at Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, McGraw-Hill, Time Inc and ABC News.
 
“I’m thrilled to join a company that is using analytics and data-driven consulting to fundamentally change the way fund managers and traders make investment decisions,” adds Dundas. “Essentia is doing something that can take active fund management to a different level, and it’s exciting to be a part of that.”
