Burciaga brings deep experience in startup and enterprise settings, with extensive knowledge in automation, data science, AI, and ML. Prior to joining ECS, Burciaga served with HCL Technologies as global operations director for analytics and artificial intelligence.
Before his tenure with HCL Technologies, Burciaga served as vice president Data Science and AI with Booz Allen Hamilton. In the role, he led data science, AI and analytics functional community activities to support federal agencies and commercial Fortune 500 enterprises.
With Accenture, Burciaga was the senior manager of Global Analytics and Applied Intelligence, where he directed analytics engagements with Fortune 100 companies and formed client partnerships, initiatives and opportunities promoting various global and North American revenue projects.
He is also a veteran of the Iraq War, where Burciaga served as an officer in the U.S. Marine Corps (USMC). He also served as the lead data technologist at USMC headquarters through 2019, where he assisted the service branch’s chief information officer (CIO).
“I’m excited to join a company committed to leveraging the latest AI and ML technology towards national security and prosperity,” said Burciaga. “In doing so, ECS continues to define the industry’s best practices. Our solutions transform how commercial and federal clients collect, analyze, and ultimately make better decisions using data.”
