Chief Data Officer

Carrie Cobb

A data intelligence executive with expertise in driving innovation, growing revenue for market-specific solutions, and creating strategic roadmaps for product development using data analytics. I have a knack for driving transformational change that ultimately enhances network infrastructure, end-user experience, and optimizes operational efficiencies while reducing operating expenses. Specializing in steering the execution of SaaS-based services and process automation using Lean Six Sigma practices, I am a subject matter expert in data governance and compliance and an industry expert in analytics products. Known as an outside-the-box thinker and strategist, I’m passionate about implementing high-value technology solutions that solve the most pressing and impactful business problems in new inventive ways. While leveraging partnerships with stakeholders, colleagues, and executive teams, I take full ownership and accountability for delivering results. During my long-standing tenure at Blackbaud, I’ve worked my way from data analyst to technology executive because of repeatedly taking the initiative to improve day-to-day functions. In my previous roles, I focused on streamlining operation efficiency. I would love to connect with like-minded professionals. I can be reached by email at
