We wish Mark well in his future endeavors.”
“It has been a privilege serving on the Alteryx Board of Directors and leading Alteryx as CEO for the last three years,” said Anderson. “I am immensely proud of what our team accomplished together. Alteryx has a remarkable future ahead with Clearlake and Insight, and I look forward to following its continued success.”
