CEO PAUL BUCHANAN

Prior to founding BUCS, Paul was an executive level leader at an international Fortune 25 business and eventually pursued a consulting opportunity as an independent.  This ultimately led to a project with Helzberg Diamonds where Paul gained understanding of how its parent company Berkshire-Hathaway guides performance for its companies.

Paul experienced the data challenges faced by mid-sized businesses seeking strategic to tactical decision alignment.  It became evident that decision makers were hand-cuffed and substantial performance opportunities were often difficult to address.  Through this experience, BUCS Analytics was conceived and incorporated in 2006.  Today, BUCS purpose is to help mid-sized businesses put their data to work and ease the burden of conventional business reporting.

Paul is a long-time member of the School of Management Advisory Council for the Tippie College of Business at the University of Iowa.   He has participated as an Adjunct Professor for the Executive MBA Program at the Helzberg School of Management at Rockhurst University.  Furthermore, Paul brings a broad base of corporate and entrepreneurial businesses experience across an array of disciplines; including finance, supply chain, operational management, data transformation and systems integration.
