Fletcher brings decades of leadership experience to accelerate next phase of company’s growth
DataRobot, the leader in Augmented Intelligence, today welcomed Damon Fletcher to its executive leadership team as the company’s new Chief Financial Officer (CFO). In his new role, Fletcher will oversee all global aspects of DataRobot’s financial operations and prepare DataRobot for its next stage of rapid growth at scale.
Fletcher joins DataRobot with twenty years of leadership experience at the intersection of technology and finance, most recently as Chief Financial Officer for Tableau. During his tenure as CFO, Fletcher helped navigate Tableau’s shift to a subscription-based model, leading the company to over $1 billion in revenue. In June 2019, Fletcher was instrumental in Tableau’s acquisition by Salesforce (NYSE: CRM) for $15.7 billion in stock.
“At DataRobot, we are obsessed with helping organizations unlock the power of their data to realize critical business insights,” said Dan Wright, CEO of DataRobot. “Damon shares this passion, and his impeccable track record of scaling leading organizations and wealth of experience in the public markets makes him the ideal addition to our team at this pivotal point in our journey. We’re thrilled to welcome Damon to DataRobot as we continue our rapid innovation and growth across all industries, geographies, and market segments.”
Prior to joining Tableau in January 2014, Fletcher worked with some of the fastest growing public companies in the world as a certified public accountant with PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP. Fletcher holds a Masters of Accounting degree from the University of Florida and a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of North Florida. He resides in Seattle, WA.
“I’ve been following DataRobot for years, and have long-admired the breadth of their platform, their focus on data-driven insights and decisions, and the game-changing results they consistently deliver to customers,” said Fletcher. “To join the DataRobot team as CFO, particularly at this moment of explosive growth for the company, is a tremendous opportunity.”
After six years serving as DataRobot’s first CFO, Matt Cain will continue with the company in an executive leadership role.
