LOWER MANHATTAN, NY. Sep 17, 2021 /Press Release/

Accrete, a leading enterprise AI software provider headquartered in Lower Manhattan, is pleased to announce the appointment of Derek Vallès as Director of Product Innovation. Derek is responsible for leading efforts to identify, validate, and develop new product initiatives by collaborating with teams across the organization and engaging industry stakeholders.

Prashant Bhuyan, Founder and CEO of Accrete, said, “Our enterprise customers are struggling with information complexity and are demanding tools that transcend automation. They want to off-load complex work to machines for the purpose of making better decisions faster and connecting dots that are simply invisible to the human brain. Customers know predictive patterns exist in the data they interact with but can’t see them because the tools they use can’t learn and understand context. Information complexity is a limiting factor to growth."

Prashant adds, "All intelligence is contextual. Derek’s addition to the Product Innovation team will fast-track our ability to match our continually learning AI to the right problems in the right markets at the right time and, under the leadership of Chris Sailer, our Head of Product Innovation and Corporate Strategy, maximize our own risk-adjusted return on capital.”

Derek brings to Accrete diverse experience as an academic researcher, investment analyst, and technologist. Most recently, he served as Director of Equity Research at Amenity Analytics, where he led a variety of product, research, and go-to-market initiatives to commercialize NLP solutions for financial services clients. Early in his career, he developed natural language processing (NLP) solutions with applications across political economy at The London School of Economics and served as an investment analyst for a long-only global equity manager, where he covered aerospace and defense, technology, and healthcare. Derek earned his BA from New York University and his M.Sc. and Ph.D. from The London School of Economics & Political Science. He is an elected Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.

Derek Vallès, Director of Product Innovation, said, “I’ve deeply admired Accrete since its founding and it’s a privilege to join a team that’s so tangibly intentional about its culture, growth, and clients. While the capabilities embodied in Accrete’s Knowledge Functions represent a differentiated approach to deploying modular artificial intelligence at scale, the commitment to evolving wisely shines most brightly. The Product Innovation team is central to that effort as a strategic partner across the organization and advocate for the clients and end markets we serve. Our role is to help chisel statues out of marble by systemizing the discovery and validation process to frame strategic business decisions around our product portfolio. I couldn’t be more excited to come aboard and get started.”
