Libby Duane Adams is co-founder and Chief Advocacy Officer of Alteryx. She and her co-founders, Dean and Ned, have built one of the biggest analytics software companies in the world, with a multi-billion dollar market cap, and they’ve done so right here in Orange County. She is also one of only a handful of female founders to take a technology company public. We talked about that amazing journey and story on the podcast.
Alteryx has also had a technology journey as they offer solutions from the desktop to the cloud and she’s evolved and thrived through it all. As a co-founder, along the way she’s led Marketing, Customer Experience and now Advocacy. It’s also been great to have her more involved in the community as Alteryx is taking its platform to schools to equip the next generation with important skills and experiences.
Libby described how companies like Pacific Life are using Alteryx across their company and putting the thrill back into problem solving. She is clearly still thrilled to be a part of the company.
We also spoke about the early days, when Alteryx was not so big, and some of those memories and lessons.
