EDM Council Names Interim Managing Director


The Enterprise Data Management Council has selected John Bottega to take over responsibilities of Mike Atkin, who recently decided to focus his full-time efforts on advancing the EDM Council’s research and education initiatives.

Bottega’s mandate will be to further accelerate growth of the Council’s member base and promote its industry initiatives globally.

Bottega began working with the EDM Council as an industry contributor in 2005 and served as Chairman from 2007 to 2014. He joined the Council’s executive team as a Senior Advisor in 2014, bringing more than 30 years’ experience as a data management practitioner, most recently serving as chief data officer (CDO) for Bank of America, and previously with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and Citi.

“It is an honor to be stepping up to lead the Council at such an exciting time,” said Bottega. “We have a number of key initiatives underway that will further galvanize the Council’s role as a driving force for the data management profession across the globe.”

Mike Atkin has recently embarked on an industry first by teaching a data management course at Columbia University. He has served in a leadership capacity for the Council since it was formed in 2005. During that time, he has helped shape much of today’s data management agenda through the Council’s research, promotion of industry best practices and advocacy of content and information standards.

“Mike Atkin’s contribution to the Council over the years has been invaluable and I would like to thank him on behalf of all Council members for his leadership,” says EDM Council chairman Peter Serenita. “While we are sorry to see him step down from his leadership role, we are very pleased that he has decided to continue as a key contributor to the Council to further its goals in research and education.”
