Chief Data Officer & Co-Founder

Matt Sawyer is the Co-founder and Chief Data Officer at Kleene, the London based Series A data analytics startup. Before founding Kleene, Matt held senior data positions as Director of Data at Trainline, Group Head of Data at Momondo and Head of BI at Just Eat.

This experience led to the founding of Kleene. Having repeatedly faced the same challenges in senior data positions – large and expensive data teams spending time loading, cleansing and organising data rather than generating insights and value from data.

Our vision

To make knowledge a commodity, not a privilege

Why we exist

“The reality is that the journey to knowledge isn’t just a concept – it’s a commodity. In my previous roles at organizations including Just Eat, notonthehighstreet and Zego, I saw first hand how different businesses invest time and money by building in house solutions to solve the same problems, with the same data sources and same goal: to bridge data silos so they can understand their data quicker and have a single source of the truth. And it made me think; what if there was a tool that all businesses could use, to simplify, clean and automate the centralization of their data? This would allow businesses to make the journey to knowledge quicker, and differentiate from their competitors. That’s how Kleene was born.” – Drew Thomas, Kleene CEO & Co-Founder
