In his new role, Goldstein will be responsible for managing globally Talend’s network of systems integrator and consulting partners, expanding Talend’s presence internationally via resellers, and further developing Talend’s OEM channel.
“One thing we identified early on in the development of Talend was the importance of our indirect channel,” said Bertrand Diard, co-founder and CEO, Talend. “Over the years, we’ve been able to align with a number of key partners, but realised it was time to bring on a senior executive with the right experience and talent to drive our indirect go-to-market strategy to a new level of success. Keith embodies the qualities and expertise we were looking for in this field. We are confident that with his breadth of capabilities and depth of knowledge, he will help Talend provide a superior level of service to our partners and help them contribute further to Talend’s exponential growth.”
Goldstein brings more than 25 years of enterprise sales and business development experience to Talend. His global channel experience includes more than five years at TIBCO Software as vice president of alliances and channels, where he created and executed the company’s initial partner strategy. In addition to TIBCO, Goldstein has held executive positions at Arcot, BroadVision, and Starview Technology, helping them to reach varying levels of growth through partnerships.
“I am thrilled to be joining such an exciting company,” said Keith Goldstein. “Talend has not only become a major player in a fast growing market, but offers customers a superior and clearly differentiated technology through its unified integration platform, combined with the deployment power of the open source model. I look forward to playing a critical role at Talend and leveraging my expertise to dramatically grow the company’s channel strategy and initiatives.”
