On his LinkedIn page, Selipsky touts his success in building teams, products, markets and equity value, and his extensive general management experience managing teams of thousands and running large business-to-business and consumer businesses at public companies.

Selipsky was named CEO of Tableau, which provides a self-service analytics platform that enables users to access, prepare, analyze and present findings in their data, in August 2016.

Tableau was growing, but it was in the red. Its revenue increased from $653.6 million in 2015 to $826.9 million in 2016, but its net loss also grew from $83.7 million to $144.4 million.

By 2018, Tableau had reported $982.9 million in revenue and a loss that ballooned to $277.2 million.

San Francisco-based Salesforce, a customer relationship management company, acquired Tableau in August 2019. Tableau contributed approximately $652 million in total subscription and support revenues to Salesforce in fiscal 2020 and $1.5 billion in fiscal 2021, according to a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filing.
