Chopra Brings More Than Two Decades of Experience in Analytics to Leaders in Consumer Risk Management
SAN DIEGO, CALIF. — ID Analytics LLC, a leader in consumer risk management, today announced that Sameer Chopra has joined the management team as chief analytics and science officer. Chopra will take over the role from Dr. Stephen Coggeshall, who retired last month after more than a decade with the company. As chief analytics and science officer, Chopra will oversee research and development and manage the data scientists that develop and refine the data-driven models that power ID Analytics’ products and services. He will report directly to Scott Carter, CEO of ID Analytics.
“I am thrilled to join the ID Analytics family. Beyond being part of an amazing and unparalleled culture, I have the honor of leading a world-class group of data scientists,” said Chopra. “I look forward to driving cutting-edge machine learning solutions for fraud and credit risk and leveraging synergies with Symantec to develop holistic industry-leading products.”
Most recently, Chopra served as chief analytics officer at GoDaddy, where he led the data science and advanced analytics group, as well as the business analytics teams. Prior to GoDaddy, he was chief analytics officer at Orbitz where he built the advanced analytics group from the ground up—applying data science and machine learning across different facets of the organization, helping transform the culture to become more data and analytics driven.
Chopra has also held analytics roles at Intuit and eBay. While at eBay, he designed and developed robust fraud detection models and data mining techniques that helped the company predict and prevent fraud. He earned a master’s in operations research from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
He currently also serves on the advisory board of Northwestern University’s Master’s in Analytics program where he mentors students and helps shape the curriculum.
“Sameer’s deep understanding and background in advanced analytics and fraud modeling will be invaluable as we develop our next generation of fraud and credit risk solutions to protect businesses and consumers,” said Carter. “We are excited to welcome a data scientist of this caliber to the team.”
