Tableau Software Appoints John McAdam to Board of Directors

(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Seattle, WA (PRWEB) December 12, 2012 Tableau Software, the maker of fast analytics and visualization software, today announced that it has appointed John McAdam to its Board of Directors. McAdam has served as President, Chief Executive Officer and Director of F5 Networks since July 2000.

During his tenure at F5, McAdam has grown the company from $108.6 million in revenue to more than $1 billion. Today, global enterprises, communications service providers, cloud providers, and the largest online properties, rely on F5 solutions. He has overseen numerous successful acquisitions, guiding F5 into new and adjacent markets. Under his leadership, F5 was added to the S&P 500 – one of the world’s most widely followed stock market indices.

“Tableau is ushering in a new age of business analytics that unleashes data and puts it into the hands of everyone,” said Christian Chabot, Chairman, CEO and co-founder of Tableau Software. “John’s extraordinary experience building transformational technology companies will help drive us to the next level.” “Tableau’s management team has created a culture of innovation that has resulted in revolutionary products with tremendous flexibility and ease of use,” said McAdam. “It’s a rare breed of company that has the opportunity to make a real difference in a huge global market. I look forward to helping.” Prior to F5, McAdam served as General Manager of the Web server sales business at IBM. He previously was President and Chief Operating Officer of Sequent Computer Systems, Inc. He holds a B.S. in Computer Science from the University of Glasgow, Scotland.

McAdam’s appointment is the third for Tableau’s Board of Directors this year. Tableau announced Brooke Seawell to its Board in February and Ren Jurgensen’s appointment in September. Last fall, Jay Peir joined as Tableau’s Vice President of corporate development. Peir spent the past nine years at SunPower Corporation where he led their IPO preparations. Tableau also brought Keenan Conder on board as Vice President, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary. Conder has an extensive history in high growth public companies including Isilon Systems and Expedia.     Tableau was spun out of Stanford in 2003 when Chabot, Chris Stolte and Professor Pat Hanrahan realized that computer graphics could deliver huge gains in people’s ability to understand information. The company has had eight consecutive years of record sales, achieving 83 percent sales growth in 2011, and exceeding $100 million in revenue in 2012.

About Tableau Tableau Software helps people see and understand data. Ranked by Gartner and IDC in 2011 as the world’s fastest growing business intelligence company, Tableau helps anyone quickly analyze, visualize and share information.
