Olivia Duane Adams
Chief Advocacy Officer at Alteryx
Olivia Duane Adams (Libby) is the chief advocacy officer (CAO) and co-founder of Alteryx, and one of only a handful of female founders to take a technology company public, along with her founding counterparts, Dean Stoecker and Ned Harding. Libby’s vision and leadership in the creation of the world’s leading data science and analytics community is a key factor in the company’s 20+ year success. Under Libby’s leadership, the Alteryx Community has grown both on- and offline, serving as an incubator for the workforce of the future and empowering women in business via the Alteryx Women of Analytics initiative. Libby recognized early on that creating a customer-centric culture went beyond delivering a successful product experience and set out to enable a global community of passionate data lovers, where Alteryx users can solve more together, boldly step into the unknown, and achieve more than they ever thought possible. As CAO she focuses on strengthening upskilling efforts for customers, scaling the presence of Alteryx in academia and furthering diversity and inclusion in the technology space. Before co-founding Alteryx, Libby held various sales, customer, and marketing roles at Strategic Mapping, Donnelley, and VNU Business Media. Libby earned a bachelor’s degree from Castleton University in Vermont and is an active member of the university’s alumni association.
