Anu leads the Analytics function at Correlation Ventures. The Analytics team is responsible for developing Correlation’s proprietary selection model, managing the company’s data assets, and supporting other areas of the business that leverage these data assets.
For nearly 20 years, Anu has developed and delivered successful commercial solutions built around predictive analytics. Beginning in the early 1990’s at HNC Software as Executive Director of Modeling, Anu co-developed the Falcon credit card fraud detection system currently responsible for protecting over 60% of credit card transactions in real-time and world-wide—a groundbreaking product that fueled HNC’s 1995 IPO. During Anu’s tenure at HNC, the company grew from 40 employees in 1992 to more than 1,000 by the end of the decade. In 1997, he co-launched the Healthcare division within HNC Software. In 2000, Anu co-founded Burning Glass Technologies, applying predictive analytics techniques to Human Capital Management. After HNC was acquired in 2002 by Fair Isaac for over $800 million, Anu re-joined the company to launch and manage Fair Isaac’s India operation, currently the company’s largest single facility. He later took leadership of Fair Isaac’s Healthcare & Insurance Analytics business unit.
Anu received a B.S. (Double Honors) in Mathematics and Computer Science from the University of Waterloo in Canada, and also holds a Masters in Computer Science and a Ph.D. in Operations Research from the University of California, Berkeley.LinkedIn
