About

Hello. I am Antanas Baltrušaitis an experienced business and data analyst. I have over 14 years of experience providing impactful business insights and building end-to-end analytic solutions (automating reporting, building analytic tools and calculators, BI and database development).

I consider myself an analytics generalist, I can discuss both business strategy with the CEO and optimal data architecture with the data engineer.

I am analytics generalist

“A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.”

2021 - now
Seeking independence

Decided, that I want to share my knowledge and skills with a wider audience as an independent consultant. Explico was born. Since start, I have delivered multiple BI development, data analytics and tool development projects with big names in the industry. 

2020 - now
Back to the roots

Time in leadership shoes, was invaluable. but I concluded, that I'm a better analyst than a diplomat and resigned leadership role and came to Luminor, where I still help a business get data, insights and reports as BI product owner.

2017-2020
Building leadership competences

The natural logical step - was to transit to a Leadership role, so I continued as:

Establishing my Career
