Nona Janssen Walls

Job Title: SVP, IT, Enterprise Data & Analytics

Company: Lionsgate

Nona’s love for people, process, technology, and data began long before the phrase “BIG DATA” was coined. For decades, she has helped management and executives make sense of seemingly disparate data in the retail, financial services, grocery, fashion, hi tech and telecom industries, but her heart lies in entertainment.

Nona currently leads a dynamic team of analysts, developers, and data scientists who provide Lionsgate and its related brands with agile solutions for all aspects of media production, marketing, sales, distribution, finance, and direct to consumer SVOD delivery.

Anything and everything can be made smarter, more immediate, and more personalized. Our responsibility to our companies, industries and global economy is to identify the efficient, profitable ways to generate and distribute “Smart Analytics” to attract and retain the interest of our ever-changing audience.
