Keenan Conder, Vice President, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary, of Tableau Software (NYSE: DATA), a global leader in rapid-fire, easy-to-use business analytics software, has been named an honoree for Outstanding Corporate Counsel as part of Puget Sound Business Journal’s (PSBJ) Corporate Counsel Awards.
PSBJ’s Corporate Counsel Awards celebrate the top in-house attorneys and general counsel. They highlight outstanding work by both generalists and specialists in public and private companies and nonprofit organizations of all sizes. More importantly, they emphasize the value these professionals add to their organizations’ bottom lines.
“Puget Sound Business Journal is proud to recognize those individuals who provide outstanding legal counsel in their companies and contribute to the economic vitality of the community,” said Business Journal Publisher Gordon Prouty.
Conder oversees all of the legal functions of Tableau. He joined Tableau in January 2012 and oversaw the legal and regulatory aspects of the company’s successful initial public offering (IPO) in May 2013. He previously served as General Counsel at Expedia during their public offering in 2005, and as General Counsel at Isilon Systems (acquired by EMC) from 2007 to 2012.
“Keenan has played an integral role in growing our company from a small, privately held business to a publicly traded entity,” said Tom Walker, Chief Financial Officer at Tableau Software. “His professionalism, experience and leadership have made him incredibly deserving of this recognition.”
Conder was recognized along with other legal heroes throughout the Puget Sound region at an awards banquet on April 24 at The W Hotel in Seattle. More information about his award can be found at http://www.bizjournals.com/seattle/print-edition/2014/04/25/corporate-counsel-keenan-conder.html.
