Juliet Rumball-Smith PhD FAFPHM MBChB
Senior Data Analyst
As one of Generation Y’s most prolific overachievers (we didn’t have room for all of the letters after her name), Juliet has the brain of a super computer. As OptiFleet's Senior Data Analyst, Juliet uses this gift and her extensive research experience to collect and collate relevant vehicle industry market data from New Zealand and abroad. She regularly undertakes detailed audits of our clients' fleet asset registers, to highlight discrepancies with NZTA records before cleansing and extending them. Once these fleet asset registers are verified, she is then able to provide a detailed assessment on the current state of each fleet to identify where efficiencies and improvements can be made.
