Vince Vu

Performance and Strategy, King County, WA

Vince Vu is an unapologetic data wonk. His passion lies in lifting the “fog of war” over data analytics, and demystifying number crunching in order to understand systems. He is a fierce believer that there is a data analyst in everyone, and that parsing organizations and the people who power them is the most impactful way of achieving policy change. He champions entrepreneurial thinking as a basis for organizational decision-making, and believes that organizations reap the most extensive benefits by leading from the heart.

Vince currently manages enterprise data analytics efforts within King County. His portfolio includes ongoing consultative services and technical assistance to departments, as well as oversight of major deliverables such as the annual employee engagement survey and customer service measurement. Prior to joining King County, Vince led a management consulting firm that helped public-sector clients develop capacity for program evaluation, effective organizational design, and community engagement. Vince believes in people-centered analytics and gets excited about how powerful data – and well-designed spreadsheets – can be.
