Global cloud data integration and data integrity vendor Talend has appointed Christal Bemont, former chief revenue officer at SAP Concur, as its chief executive officer.

Bemont replaces Mike Tuchen, who is stepping down as CEO, effective immediately, but will remain on the board of directors.

Tuchen led Talend through a successful transformation over the last six years from a US$50m startup to a US$250m publicly-held company.

Talend says that as chief revenue officer at SAP Concur, Bemont was responsible for the development and execution of all go-to-market strategies to drive and sustain 25+% annual revenue growth.

Earlier in her career Bemont worked at Motorola and for Adexs, Extensity, and Clarify.

“As Talend’s CEO, Mike successfully implemented a multi-year strategy, growing the company to nearly $250M in revenue and transforming it into a leader in cloud integration. Over the past 18 months, Mike led Talend’s transformation to the cloud and achievement of our goal of reaching over half of new ARR from the cloud in the fourth quarter,” said Talend chairman Steve Singh.

“I’d like to thank him for his vision and guidance in positioning the company to take advantage of a large global opportunity.”

“I’m thrilled to have Christal join as Talend’s CEO. She will be instrumental in accelerating our cloud transformation and broader go-to-market strategy,” Singh said.

“I worked closely with Christal at Concur and at SAP, where she helped to scale a startup into a $1b+ cloud business. The board is confident that her leadership skills, cloud market knowledge, and deep SaaS expertise will help Talend execute against the opportunity in front of it.”

Talend has also announced that it has appointed Ann-Christel Graham as chief revenue officer and Jamie Kiser as chief customer officer.

“Today marks the next chapter at Talend—as we accelerate our journey to becoming a billion-dollar revenue company. I’ve been honored to help lead the team that brought Talend from startup to IPO and now to a quarter-billion-dollars, and look forward to seeing Talend enter its next growth phase at scale,” said Tuchen.

“Christal has exceptionally strong leadership skills, deep go-to-market experience, and unique expertise in scaling multi-billion dollar cloud businesses. She’s the right leader at the right time in Talend’s evolution.”

Commenting on her appointment Bemont said: “The cloud plays an increasingly essential role in delivering business insights to the enterprise, and Talend plays an equally important role by providing the industry’s only cloud platform that removes the major hurdles preventing companies from using data as a strategic asset.”

“Talend is now in a unique position to attack what has become a multi-billion-dollar cloud market opportunity.

“I’m delighted to be joining the company and look forward to working with my leadership team and a talented group of employees to leverage Talend’s cloud momentum and drive the business forward.”
