Our Story, Our Team

Overview

NCS enables our clients to realize safety, security, and economic benefits, all through the power of our data analytics platform. We provide comprehensive solutions that gather, collect, and analyze information from an increasing number of data sources.

NCS was founded by Adam Crabtree (CEO) after he saw the implications of companies not openly interacting with the financial institutions and governmental agencies and the ramifications it causes.

We believe that by bringing the financial industry together with their local and state regulators, we can enlighten both groups with clear and transparent information.

Our solutions bring a new level of refinement and reliable data to traditionally high-risk industries. We believe that by creating a meaningful conversation between the financial and regulatory sectors, we can reduce risk, increase revenue realization, and enhance public safety.

Adam Crabtree

CEO & Founder

Adam is the Founder and CEO of NCS Analytics, Inc (NCS), headquartered in Denver, Colorado. Adam began his career in banking and was managing sales, operations, and compliance with a Tier 1 bank when he noticed the inherent flaws and the systemic disconnect between banks and their local or state regulators. Using his background and acumen in banking, he developed a patent-pending predictive analytical algorithm-based system capable of aggregating and analyzing tens of millions of data points that transform into clear, concise, detailed reports.

This system, the NCS Platform, has allowed him to work collaboratively with state or local officials, as well as financial institutions across the country. Adam has extensive knowledge on a wide range of topics and has shared his expertise with all levels of government as well as the banking industry. He is a proud three-time graduate of the University of Colorado (BA, MBA, MSF).
