Alteryx, Inc., the Analytics Cloud Platform company, recently announced that its Board of Directors has appointed Kevin Rubin, the Company’s Chief Financial Officer, to serve as Interim Chief Executive Officer. Rubin succeeds Mark Anderson, who has stepped down as CEO and from the Board of Directors to pursue other professional opportunities.
“As we work toward completing our previously announced transaction and prepare to become a private company, we’re grateful to have Kevin at the helm to oversee our operations,” said Dan Warmenhoven, Lead Independent Director of Alteryx. “With over 20 years of leadership experience in scaling global financial operations for growth companies, including eight as Alteryx’s CFO, Kevin possesses the skills and expertise to lead the Company forward during this transitional period.”
“I am pleased to serve as Interim CEO as we continue to build on our strong foundation and capitalize on the momentum in the business,” said Rubin. “Alteryx has a deep bench of talent across the entire organization fueling our innovation and success, and I look forward to continuing to deliver for our customers, employees and stockholders.”
Warmenhoven continued, “We thank Mark for his contributions to Alteryx. Throughout his tenure as CEO, Mark led the Company through key milestones, including our cloud and AI transformation, the COVID-19 pandemic and the transaction announcement in December. We wish Mark well in his future endeavors.”
“It has been a privilege serving on the Alteryx Board of Directors and leading Alteryx as CEO for the last three years,” said Anderson. “I am immensely proud of what our team accomplished together. Alteryx has a remarkable future ahead with Clearlake and Insight, and I look forward to following its continued success.”
With the support of the Company’s finance organization, Rubin will continue to serve as Chief Financial Officer while serving as Interim CEO.
