Jaywing Strengthens Retail Fraud Offering with Ben Archer as Lead Consultant

To combat the escalating threat of retail fraud, risk and data science consultancy, Jaywing, has appointed Ben Archer as Lead Consultant. With almost two decades of data science and fraud prevention experience within the financial services and retail sectors, Archer’s expertise will be instrumental in enhancing Jaywing's fraud prevention offering to meet the growing demands of its clients.

Prior to joining Jaywing, Archer spent two years at Provenir, where he played a pivotal role in the development of fraud products. His responsibilities included collaborating with lending organisations and governments to identify fraud rings across different countries, as well as working with the gaming industry on graph database analytics and linkage scoring to combat issues of multi-accounting and bonus abuse.

Archer also spent twelve years at FICO, a prominent analytics company, where his leadership in fraud detection and prevention operations covered the EU, Middle East, and Africa.

Commenting on his move to Jaywing, Ben Archer said, "I’ve always enjoyed creating products, but missed the challenge of working with clients to solve problems. I was drawn to Jaywing because it employs technology as a tool, where consultants seamlessly integrate with client teams to utilise both people and cutting-edge tech to tackle challenges."

Ben O'Brien, Managing Director at Jaywing, added, "We’ve been pursuing Ben Archer for years because of his extensive knowledge across all aspects of fraud. With experience covering the UK and international markets, his specialised knowledge in retail fraud, demonstrated through collaborations with the likes of The Very Group, The Hut Group, and EE, positions him as an ideal fit for Jaywing. As we witness a surge in demand for such services within our retail clientele, Ben's addition strengthens our commitment to meeting the evolving needs of our partners.”
