Dan Huscher joins Lukka as Head of Data and Analytics after running Product Development for IHS Markit’s Pricing and Reference Data Business

Lukka, the leading institutional crypto asset software, and data provider have appointed Dan Huscher as Head of Data and Analytics. Huscher joins Lukka from IHS Markit, where he was Head of Product Development for their pricing and reference data business and Head of Data Strategy for their global markets group. In his role at IHS Markit, Huscher oversaw the product development and execution of the firm’s pricing and reference data business, one of the fastest-growing businesses within the firm’s $1.7B Financial Services division

In his new role as Head of Data and Analytics for Lukka, Huscher will be responsible for the further development, delivery, and growth of Lukka’s industry leading crypto asset data business. Having been a critical driver of the pricing and reference data business’s growth over his 16 year tenure at IHS Markit, Huscher will help Lukka expand its crypto asset data offerings for institutions. His track record of innovation and delivery in fast-paced environments is key as Lukka looks to grow their revenue from data products and expand operations as crypto is rapidly adopted by traditional finance across the world.

“Data has been the focus of my entire career. I have personally experienced the rapid expansion and increased importance of data products in the financial industry. I believe the need for institutional-grade crypto asset data will follow in the same way,” said Dan Huscher, Head of Data and Analytics for Lukka. “The data complexities that result from the decentralized nature of the crypto ecosystem mean that there are significant challenges for firms that require this data for normal business operations. Lukka has cracked the code on these complexities and already demonstrated itself to be industry leaders in the space. I am excited to join the team and help play a role in the adoption of crypto assets in the broader financial industry.”

“Dan’s reputation as a leader and seasoned financial data expert makes him a perfect fit to lead Lukka’s data products. Lukka serves many of the most risk mature institutions in the world and data quality is paramount. Lukka’s data business has already experienced tremendous growth this year and with Dan’s proven capabilities, we know that he will enable us to scale faster while managing risk. We couldn’t be more excited having Dan join the team.”
