The organization continues to rapidly expand its consulting presence across its national markets.

Ray comes to AIM with over 25 years of experience and an extensive background in the data and analytics sector. He has encompassed senior leadership positions throughout his career, both in the consulting and corporate environment. Having started his career in engineering within the aerospace sector, Ray achieved hands-on experience working with large, complex datasets and systems. He initiated his transition to adding analytic capabilities to his repertoire.  Thus spending the next 25+ years in the consulting industry with various roles from Analyst to Architect, empowering others and growing teams as a strategic leader across multiple industries.

Johnson earned a master’s degree in computer science with a concentration in artificial intelligence from North Central College in Illinois, with his thesis research on the application of neural networks and genetic algorithms.

When it comes to what keeps him interested in the space, Johnson says, “I am always researching current and new trends in the analytics space. As a member of the IEEE Computer Society, I explore topics that are a few years out. Lately, the topic has been using Quantum Computing for data analysis and new data visualization techniques. I have access to Quantum Computing hardware and a simulator, so let the fun begin!”
