Dataiku, a platform specialising in Everyday AI, has announced the appointment of Sandrine Bossard as their new Chief People Officer. The move is seen as underlining Dataiku's commitment to its employees and values, as Bossard will lead the company's forward-thinking HR initiatives. These initiatives chiefly focus on enhancing organisational culture, retaining employees, promoting learning and development, and boosting organisational efficiency which will support the company's future growth.

Bossard’s appointment coincides with a period of substantial momentum for the tech firm, which recently launched its Generative AI enterprise solutions, safety, and tools, such as the recently unveiled LLM Mesh.

With an impressive career spanning various leadership roles at internationally acknowledged companies such as Believe, Ingenico Group, and Experian, Bossard brings extensive experience in the tech and digital industry to Dataiku. In previous roles, she has demonstrated a strong alignment with cultural, market dynamics and a passion for nurturing talent during periods of rapid growth. Her competence in executing global HR programs in multicultural settings, contrasts perfectly with Dataiku’s extensive global presence.

The President of Dataiku, Krish Venkataraman, has expressed his confidence in Bossard's qualifications, stating: "At the heart of Dataiku is the people; they are our primary asset and have made a difference every step of the way. Sandrine's agile and visionary approach to HR embodies Dataiku's ethos. As we look forward to the next phase of global growth and development, we are confident in Sandrine's capability not just to drive this growth but to continue placing employee development at the heart of the Dataiku engine."

In her role at Dataiku, Bossard will focus on aligning and advancing the company's collective capabilities with its 'Everyday AI, Extraordinary People' mission. Among her responsibilities will be to advance human resources, with a particular emphasis on initiatives in Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Corporate Social Responsibility. Based in Paris, Bossard will form an integral part of the company's Executive Committee and report directly to Dataiku President, Krish Venkataraman.

Commenting on her appointment, Bossard says: "I’m excited to be joining Dataiku. My mission goes beyond conventional HR functions; it's about sculpting Dataiku's strategy, identifying our people's intrinsic talents, and cultivating capabilities to keep us ahead of the curve. I am invigorated by the shared ambition we have to craft a future-ready people organisation, and I'm committed to guiding Dataiku through the growth challenges of the upcoming decade."
