The Business Analytics Center (BAC) at Georgia Tech's Scheller College of Business is excited to announce that CRH is the newest member of our Executive Council. Serving customers across the U.S. and Canada, CRH is the leading provider of building materials solutions that build, connect, and improve our world.
As a member of the Executive Council, CRH will work closely with Georgia Tech’s outstanding students and world-class faculty to solve business analytics challenges and accelerate the continued advancement of cutting-edge business analytics tools, techniques, and best practices. This focused collaboration will deliver increased business insights as well as support innovation and the continued development of analytics at CRH.
“We look forward to expanding our longstanding relationship with Georgia Tech,” said CRH's Vice President of Data Analytics and Business Intelligence Mark Arnold. “By joining this group of leading companies we hope to leverage the knowledge of Georgia Tech’s talented students to advance our efforts in the analytics space to benefit both our company and the construction industry.”
Other current industry leaders who make up the BAC Executive Council include The Home Depot, NCR, and UPS.
“We are excited about this new strategic partnership, said Dr. Sri Narashimhan, Gregory J. Owens Professor of IT Management and Research Faculty Director of the Business Analytics Center. “CRH is responsible for the development of products and materials that shape everything from our homes to roads and bridges. As data and AI increasingly drive better and faster business insights, we value opportunities like this where our students and researchers can help contribute efficiencies and improvements to help CRH better serve their customers and reach their business goals.”
“CRH will be a unique addition to the Executive Council,” adds BAC Managing Director Keith Werle. “Without the sophisticated infrastructure that CRH builds, we would literally be driving on red clay roads. Like Georgia Tech, CRH strives to build a better world with technology, investing, and prioritizing analytics, business intelligence, and data science to improve business processes. Working together, we can demonstrate the power of digital transformation, helping CRH not only build a better and more cost-effective world, but doing it with greater safety, efficiency, and sustainability.”
