Former Jaguar Land Rover director joins We Predict

We Predict has announced the appointment of professor Tim Davis as technical advisor.

Professor Davis most recently served as director of quality and automotive safety of Jaguar Land Rover, and had previously been a Henry Ford technical fellow and quality director at Ford Motor Company in Germany and Detroit. He is now a visiting Professor at Warwick University.

“We are all very excited to be adding the considerable talent and experience of Professor Davis to the team”, said James Davies, managing director of We Predict.

“Tim not only brings deep experience of automotive and manufacturing, but also an enthusiasm and knowledge of the new sectors we are entering, in particular Health analytics. The recent McKinsey report on Big Data has reinforced a belief that we have had for some time; that the role and influence of predictive statistical analysis in competitive advantage will only grow.”

Davis said: “I am really excited to be joining James and the team at We Predict as a Technical Advisor. They are a young and dynamic group, and have experience and exciting vision of how statistical modelling and analysis can be directed to improve business performance. With so much data now being generated by society in general and business in particular, statistics is the science for the 21st century and I am looking forward to making a contribution at We Predict.“

Davies added: “We are incredibly fortunate to already be working with a renowned expert in reliability theory, Dr Alan Watkins, Head of Statistics at Swansea University. The addition of Professor Davis makes us, statistically speaking, a force to be reckoned with.

We will continue to use and improve the very best statistical techniques to deliver to our client’s non-technical, actionable outputs under our service business model, delivering enormous and often immediate return on investment”.

We Predict is seeking to help deliver a better car ownership experience, reduced costs for manufacturers and greater reliability of components and vehicles.
