CarMax’s 2021 Analytics Showcase Competition Champion

I am thrilled to announce that our team, Maxximum Effort, won first place in CarMax’s Analytics Showcase Competition!
In an attempt to find out where CarMax should focus its efforts to increase customer satisfaction, our team analyzed the dataset given and presented key findings and recommendations to CarMax representatives.
The experience was a great opportunity for me to advance my analytics skills and practice storytelling with data. I was also very fortunate to work with the most fun and hardworking teammates who have the power to make my day better no matter if I see them in person or on Zoom, as a group, or as individuals.
As we celebrate our success in the competition, on behalf of Maxximum effort, I would like to thank our two coaches Richard Greatti and Beth Cranston, who listened to every concern we had and gave us the most detailed and thoughtful recommendation possible. I also want to shout out to Hayden for making all the admin work easy to handle.
Our team is proud to have represented Villanova School of Business and the Analytics Department as we competed. We would like to give special thanks to Dr. Alicia Strandberg and Meredith Lockyer for supporting us wholeheartedly throughout the competition.
