John Duffy

Data & Insights Analyst

Thirst was made for water; inquiry for truth.

— C.S. Lewis

The curious one

John is passionate about learning. A classically trained pianist, John has honed his craft over the past 16 years, experimenting with several genres and instruments in the process. He can play virtually any pop or rock song after hearing it for 30 seconds. His curiosity and aspiration for mastery also perfectly complement his role as data and insights analyst, where he helps uphold one of our primary commitments — deeply understanding each client’s business. 

As a data and insights analyst, John supports competitive research and business development efforts across the organization. Applying his creative problem-solving and analytical skills to data collection, analysis, and reporting, he delivers tools and insights that help our teams deepen their knowledge and make more informed decisions.

Prior to joining Acertitude, John supported the advisory team for a London-based executive search firm. He earned his bachelor’s degree in business economics from Providence College, summa cum laude.

For this Rhode Island local, off-hours are spent with friends and family; beach outings, hiking trail trips, and football game nights. Coming from a large family, John cherishes memories of family get-togethers, pickup football games, and their yearly ritual of trying to remember all of his cousins’ names (he has over 50!). He also makes a consistent habit of volunteering for nonprofit organizations such as Habitat for Humanity and Covenant House.
