6-4-3 Charts is proud to grow its team again with the addition of Forrest Allen! With 20 years of professional experience, Allen’s depth of knowledge, skills, and experience are a phenomenal addition to the 643 team. Forrest will augment 6-4-3 Charts world-class descriptive analytics capabilities with predictive and prescriptive analytics. “With 6-4-3 Charts,” said Allen, “I’m excited to leverage world-class descriptive analytics offerings to offer our customers predictive and prescriptive analytic solutions to understand what is about to happen and what they should do about it.”

For the last 20 years, Forrest has supported a variety of executive-level decision-makers across a wide variety of sectors including defense and aerospace, energy, and healthcare. To acquire the necessary technical skills needed to follow his passion for baseball, Forrest completed an M.S. in Business Analytics from the Stern School of Business at New York University in 2022. “When I went back to school,” said Allen, “my hope was to learn formal methods necessary to help players and coaches make better decisions using data.” This complements his B.A. in Political Science from the University of the South, where he played baseball. Allen notes that “I didn’t ‘grow up’ in data science; it’s a second career for me. As a consumer of analytics for my first 20 years, I know what’s important to the end customer and understand how to put it in a context and language they understand.”

The addition of Forrest Allen will help 6-4-3 Charts continue to serve clients at the highest level. With his knowledge and expertise, 6-4-3 Charts will build out predictive and prescriptive tools.

“We are fortunate to land a talent like Forrest,” said 6-4-3 Charts Co-Founder and CEO Derek Weldon. “He brings a unique combination of passion and in-depth knowledge of the game with cutting-edge analytic techniques, and an ability to put it all in language our customers can understand. Forrest has already hit the ground running with our team, and I can’t wait to see the impact he will make on 643 clients at all levels.”

Forrest currently lives in Madison, WI with his wife, Marisa, and daughter, Sydney. In his free time, he enjoys cooking, eating, and rooting for the Atlanta Braves and NC State.
