John Schwarz is founder and CEO of Visier. He launched the company building on his many years of experience to invent a new approach to answering business intelligence questions. The objective was to fix the perennial problem where business users spend a lot of money on IT and get little or no benefit in return.
He previously was CEO of Business Objects. During his tenure he doubled the company’s revenue to more than $1.5 billion, executed seven strategic acquisitions, and negotiated the company’s successful sale to SAP.
John is a water baby, always to be found on or in, but never more than a few feet away from a (preferably warm) ocean.
