CCG has elected the company’s first Chief Executive Officer to steer the continued growth of the organization and serve as a steward of growth in the data and analytics community. The new role was filled from within, promoting one of the company’s original Founders and partial owner, Daniel Phelps.
Dan has long been a patron of the Tampa Bay community, where CCG is presently headquartered. Locally born and raised, Dan remained in the region to pursue his degree in Accounting and Finance from the University of South Florida. Dan joins the growing number of Tampa Bay Executives committing to creating a tech-first Tampa region that supports the future generations of tech entrepreneurs and students.
Dan’s passion for data and analytics grew from his interest in statistics and early work in technical accounting systems. In 2002, Dan and his fellow Arthur Anderson consulting partners saw an opportunity in the marketplace to apply data solutions to all business functions, converging technology and business in a startup called Convergence Consulting Group (CCG). In his tenure at CCG, Dan has worn many hats including VP of Enterprise Information Management overseeing Microsoft, Informatica, IBM, SAP and Oracle innovations, and most recently serving as EVP of Delivery.
The election of Dan Phelps as CEO serves as a commitment to employees, clients, partners and this community that the organization has maintained its entrepreneurial, organic culture even through a tremendous transformation. In the past year alone, CCG has deployed never-before-seen cloud-based solutions in the marketplace, developed squads within their delivery department to foster employee-driven innovation, maintained Gold partner status with Microsoft and IBM, two undeniable leaders in the data arena, and been recommended by Gartner as a provider of Machine Learning and Data Science services. As CEO, Dan has committed to continuing to push CCG to transform into a world-class analytics solution provider.
