  1. There are few CEOs who can say they’ve taken a tech company from an early stage startup to a unicorn valued company. There are even fewer who can say they’ve done it twice. Louis Têtu, Chairman and CEO at Coveo is one of them, first with Taleo that was sold to Oracle in 2012 for $1.9 billion and now with Coveo with its current billion + valuation. Louis personally led the Coveo private investment round and joined the Coveo Board of Directors as Chairman at the height of the 2008 financial crisis. Louis became the Chief Executive Officer in 2012. Along the way he preserved and amplified the entrepreneurial spirit begun by the co-founders, making sure Coveo scaled the business quickly as it grew. As a serial tech entrepreneur, Louis is trusted by his board and his team to build value. During his tenure, Coveo has grown from a team of 80 to a team of more than 620 full-time employees; and from a valuation of $50M to $1.5B. Under Louis, Coveo has raised $233M in primary capital and now has offices in Montreal, Quebec City, Sherbrooke, New York City, London and San Francisco.
