Kevin Connelly

Account Manager

Enterprise account manager with 14 years of sales experience, 5 of which have been focused on the BI market. Kevin has been working with Tableau software's enterprise space initially in their corporate headquarters in Seattle, then 4 years ago helped Tableau grow their APAC region here in Singapore. As big data grows in large enterprises, it is becoming increasingly important to understand and leverage data as a company's most valuable asset. Tableau is the analytics platform that is helping companies large and small, from FSI to manufacturing, and everywhere in between. Helping companies better understand their data, easily ask the "why" questions of that data, then "how" do we act upon this have driven Tableau to the top of Gartner's magic quadrant and has made Tableau the gold standard of BI. In working across a number of markets and enterprises, I have a good perspective of how the BI is or could be better enabling Fintech companies with their own missions.
