Biography

Quincy Ross isn't shy about getting her foot in the door. In college, when she was interested in improving her mastery of Chinese, she researched companies doing business in Asia and fired off an email to a McDonald's executive she didn't know. It wound up in the hands of an HR rep in Singapore, who offered her an internship.

At IBM—where she first was a consultant in business services—Ross volunteered to help IBM create an analytics-software product for wealth managers. She didn't have experience in wealth management but dove into the project, partnering with a team of technologists. Then she taught hundreds of IBM salespeople how to sell it. Ross landed at data-analytics company Uptake in 2015, after meeting founder Brad Keywell at Chicago Ideas Week, which he also runs. Keywell invited her in for an interview. Later, she got his attention when she pitched him on an idea: Uptake, in the business of helping customers exploit the power of Big Data, needed to practice what it preached and use Big Data—not intuition or ambition—to make smarter decisions about how to spend money and resources. What resulted was Uptake for Uptake, an internal enterprise analytics team led by Ross. "I like to make things happen, to make something out of nothing," says Ross, who studied corporate strategy at Vanderbilt University. She grew up in Chicago's northern suburbs.
