Jenita Treacy

I’m Jenita Treacy and I’ve been working in technology and data over the past 20 years, building data analytical systems and capabilities for organisations including the Metropolitan Police where I spent the first 10 years of my career – a job I applied for while at my 1st year of university and took on full time with my studies because I was fascinated with using data to prevent crime starting as an analyst and leaving as an IT Manager, followed by similar data management and data strategy roles in the charity and public sector.

Over the past 3 years I have been at Transport for London (TfL) as a Data & Analytics Product Manager, and it is by far the most challenging but most enjoyable role yet, as I am combining all the experience I have to date with the freedom to be innovative and creative, working alongside a prototype team to iteratively develop a series of products which can detect, intervene and prevent fare evasion across the complex TfL network. I work with stakeholders across many departments, all with varying priorities, user abilities and requirements and I work with them to understand their needs, identify gaps, bed in more efficient processes, and create a culture of data-led decision making.
