Talend, the global integration software leader, today announced the appointment of Mike Tuchen as its new CEO. Formerly the CEO of Rapid7, Tuchen will be responsible for driving Talend’s operations as it continues to expand its business and to become a trusted partner for organizations that want to derive value from all their data assets.

Prior to joining Talend, Tuchen served as the CEO of Rapid7 and led the company through an exponential growth, dramatically expanding its marketing, sales, partnerships and product line. A former Microsoft executive and seasoned marketing and product strategist, he also served as the General Manager of Microsoft's SQL Server Marketing team, helping grow that business from $1.5 billion to $2.5 billion. Tuchen is also a board member of ThousandEyes.
