eData, the data services management provider specializing in high-speed analysis of large-scale data, has named Dale H. Renner, former global managing partner of Andersen Consulting's Customer Relationship Management practice, as its President and Chief Executive Officer.
Renner joins eData from Andersen Consulting, where he spent 21 years working with many of the world's leading organizations, including Ford Motor Company, Shell Chemicals, U.S. Bank and Compaq Computer Corporation.

Under Renner's leadership, the practice grew to a $1.4 Bn global business. Renner helped create and served on the advisory board for the Center for Customer Insight at the University of Texas, Austin, and sponsored several groundbreaking studies, the most recent of which documented a clear empirical link between excellence in certain CRM capabilities and bottom line financial performance.
