In January of 2015, Dave DuVarney and Rob Long founded Talavant, a business intelligence company with a unique approach to data solutions. Dave started his career in BI 18 years ago, and when he moved back to Madison, WI he continued work as an independent consultant. While on assignment he met his partner Rob, a BI professional that knew from a very young age that he wanted to work in the world of data.

Talavant knew business intelligence would not be unique to their business, but their approach could be.  Often there was so much data that companies would just hire more people to implement the same old solutions. Rob and Dave wanted to focus on getting top talent to work with companies to identify their needs and deliver automated solutions to save clients time and money.

Talavant has quadrupled its team in just a few years and continues to grow with locations in Madison and Milwaukee.
