Mike TuchenFirst Palo Alto CEO Series with Mike Tuchen, CEO of Talend

The CEO Series returns on February 6th 2019, this time with another incredible speaker in Mike Tuchen, CEO of Talend (Nasdaq: TLND) and an HBS alumni where he graduated as a Baker Scholar.

Our past events have all been held in San Francisco, but this time we are also looking out for the members of our Community living in the South Bay as this event will exceptionally take place in Palo Alto. To all our South Bay HBS and Harvard friends, all our SF events have been sold out for the past 2 years, so you may want to book a spot early!

Mike is the CEO of Talend, a Big Data leading vendor, which he joined in 2013. Mike has a wealth of leadership experience and a long list of accomplishments in the technology space. He was previously the CEO of fast growing security company Rapid7, which was recognized during his tenure as Boston’s Best Place to Work by the Boston Business Journal. Prior to Rapid7, Mike was General Manager of Microsoft’s SQL Server Marketing team. During Mike’s tenure the SQL business grew from $1.5B to $2.5B, and was the fastest growing of Microsoft’s largest businesses. This was actually his second successful stint at Microsoft, he had left the first time to found a successful startup which was later acquired. Mike started his career at Sun Microsystems as an engineer, working on SUN’s SPARC workstations.

We are thrilled to welcome Mike to the CEO Series. As a reminder, you will have a unique opportunity to learn from and interact directly with Mike as questions from the audience are highly encouraged.


Doors will open at 5pm for networking and the event will start promptly at 6pm. Food (professionally catered) and drinks (wine and beer) will be served.

The event is organized and will be moderated by JP Emelie Marcos, MBA 2001. JP is the co-founder and CEO of SignifAI, a startup based in Sunnyvale, CA.
