Databricks, the "Unified Analytics Platform" for data science teams, has appointed Amy Reichanadter as Chief People Officer. Reichanadter was previously Chief People Officer at Adaptive Insights, a business planning SaaS solution, where she led the company’s global human resources efforts for five years and then supported integration efforts for the first year after it was acquired by Workday.

With nearly 20 years in human resources, Reichanadter brings a forward-thinking, strategic perspective to creating the employee experience. Reichanadter’s priorities focus on creating highly scalable hiring and retention programs, evolving the total rewards strategy, and driving culture and organization development strategies to support the company’s accelerated global expansion.
