It is our pleasure to announce the promotion of Norm Reitter to Chief Analytics Officer/Senior Vice President of Analytics Operations at CANA Advisors!
Norm has served successfully as CANA’s Director of Analytics since January 2014. Since 2014, he has dedicated himself to building and managing a diverse, dynamic team of operations research analysts, software developers, statisticians, graphic artists, and subject matter experts who together provide innovative and “usuable” solutions to CANA’s commercial and governmental clients. Norm has distinguished himself as a key advisor to CANA during this time – providing insights and input into the company’s strategic growth and market expansion. As he takes on this new executive dual role, Norm will develop and manage CANA’s Information Technology (IT) and Independent Research and Development (IRAD) programs, advise on future analytic investments and offerings, and lead CANA’s rapidly growing Analytics Operations services line.
Norm boasts over 25 years of military and commercial experience providing logistics & analytics expertise and solutions. He holds an undergraduate degree from the U.S. Naval Academy and a graduate degree in Operations Research from the Naval Post Graduate School in Monterey, California. He currently serves in leadership roles in several professional analytics organizations. He is the Immediate Past President of the Military Operations Research Society (MORS) and the chair of the Analytics Capability Evaluation (ACE) Sub Committee with the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS). He has three highly accomplished children – Summer (currently working towards a PhD in Psychology at Indiana University of Pennsylvania), Madison (a senior graduating this June and attending Chatham University in the fall pursing a degree in Sustainability), and Josh (entering his senior year in high school this fall). When he is not leading all things Analytics at CANA Advisors and raising three amazing young citizens, Norm is snow shoeing, hiking and paddling in the mountains and lakes of Colorado.
Please join us in congratulating and welcoming Norm to this new position!
