Co-founder & CEO
With a background in theoretical physics in his (half) native Belgium, Thomas learnt his craft at BrightNorth, before joining brain training app Peak Labs as Head of Data Science. Here, he was part of the team that scaled Peak from three million to 35 million users, before a high-profile exit to Hachette Livre.
Since co-founding Tasman, Thomas has worked closely with teams at ambitious, customer-oriented companies like The Guardian, JP Morgan, Lifecake, The Collective, Asana Rebel, Heist Studios, RIXO, Flash Pack, and ResQ Club. He is a strategic thinker with a deep interest in how data can help solve business problems.
Thomas lives in Amsterdam, and with a close connection to New Zealand - as well as Scotland - when he’s not writing Python scripts, he enjoys whisky, wine, history, and travelling (often concurrently).
Co-founder & Head of Data Platform
Another physicist! Christophe also studied at Leuven in his native Belgium, before combining his technical nous with an MSc in Management at the London School of Economics.
Beginning his career in data at Google and Songkick, he then joined Snowplow Analytics, the makers of the leading open source event data collection platform, as the third employee. Here, he worked as a Data Scientist before becoming Head of Services, implementing sophisticated data pipelines for over 100 companies.
Since co-founding Tasman, Christophe has been leading data projects at Marco Polo Learning, Kaia Health, Find My Past, The Business of Fashion, Flash Pack and Gousto. Christophe has recently moved from London to Sweden and, when he’s not writing sophisticated attribution data models, he enjoys swimming in cold Scandinavian lakes.
Co-founder & Head of Data Strategy
Our resident Brit Rob started his career as a data analyst in the NHS’s National Blood Service before joining consumer choice company Which? as a Statistician. Over his five year tenure, Rob became Head of Statistics, working with teams in marketing, insight, policy, and product research to improve their access to advanced analytics and insights.
Rob then co-founded BrightNorth, a retail & e-commerce analytics company with clients including Sky, Worldpay, MetroBank, Guardian News & Media, JPMorgan and Samsung. After joining personalised-advertising company Criteo as a Director, working across Data Science and Business Solutions, and a stint at data-driven agency Beamly as VP Marketing Science & Data Strategy, Rob then came on board as a Co-founder at Tasman.
