Elissa Fink, former CMO Tableau, Joins SeekOut Advisory Board

Redmond, WA – SeekOut today announced the addition of Elissa Fink, former CMO of Tableau, to its Advisory Board. SeekOut, a Seattle-based high-growth startup, is an AI-Powered talent platform that helps enterprises recruit hard-to-find and diverse talent.

“We are very excited to welcome Elissa Fink to our Advisory Board” said Anoop Gupta, CEO and Co-Founder at SeekOut. “Elissa joined Tableau as marketing leader when their revenue was a mere $5M. She helped scale their revenue 200-fold to $1B+ by the time she left. SeekOut is experiencing a similar hockey stick growth. We are thrilled to have Elissa as an advisor and benefit from her experience as we scale our go-to-market strategy. Elissa is hands-on, she brims with energy, she inspires, and we’ll be the lucky beneficiaries of her learnings from the scars and bruises and successes she has experienced.”

Elissa currently serves on a wide variety of corporate boards, including Talend (NASDAQ:TLND), Qumulo, Pantheon, Intellimize, Conversica, and Uberflip, as well as not-for-profit boards Salmon-Safe and Operation Fistula. She advises fast-growth tech companies in scaling and marketing strategy and also teaches at the University of Washington in both the Foster School of Business and the School of Communications. Elissa’s 11+ years of experience as Chief Marketing Officer at Tableau Software’s, was instrumental in taking the company from a small startup to a publicly held industry leader with over $1 billion in revenue.

“SeekOut is transforming the way companies discover, analyze and engage untapped talent. We all know that finding the right mix of people to work on teams drives companies’ success. But so much of the processes around talent are either broken, sub-optimized or inefficient especially when it comes to diversity and inclusion. I am inspired by how SeekOut is creating huge value – and not only for companies but also for employees. Plus, to have the chance to work with Anoop, his execs, the SeekOut team and the amazing Board was a huge attraction” says Elissa.

This short video conversation between Fink and Gupta highlights SeekOut’s vision of building a better working world that embraces diversity, inclusion, and equity. The SeekOut website contains resources designed to help companies and teams recruit hard-to-find talent and boldly champion D&I efforts and make tangible progress in achieving hiring goals.
