Andre Parris
Global Business Manager, Energy and Commodities, Bloomberg, LP

Andre Parris is a Global Business Manager in Energy and Commodities for Bloomberg, LP. Andre created Bloomberg Interactive Maps for Energy and Commodities (BMAP). For five years prior to Bloomberg he was an Oil Trader on Wall Street, where he noticed a lack of solid tools, other than Excel, to analyze the fundamental aspects of the markets. The BMAP platform is Bloomberg’s first foray into analyzing data visually, via Interactive Maps, to help see the relationships, patterns and impacts which drive the markets. Andre is a graduate of Princeton University and lives in Connecticut.
