The Australia and New Zealand boss of Tableau has left the business after five years as the company is swallowed up by Salesforce.

Nigel Mendonca told ARN his decision to leave was motivated by “family reasons” and the company’s $15.7 billion-acquisition almost even made him reconsider.

“I think the Salesforce acquisition is going to be great for both companies,” he said. “I had made my decision just prior to that for family. We decided towards the end of the first half of this year to take some time out, and then the Salesforce acquisition was announced. I really carefully considered the decision but it was the right time for the family.

“Tableau has been an incredible experience, but the tech industry is super busy and you make a lot of family sacrifices.”

Mendonca first joined the data visualisation specialist in February 2015 after having previously held senior roles at Salmat, Symantecand Xpedite Systems/PGi.

The company now has employees across Melbourne, Canberra and Perth, as well as its Sydney headquarters.

ARN understands a replacement is still being sought for Mendonca. Tableau has been contacted for comment. 

The departure coincides with Salesforce’s closure of the Tableau deal on 2 August, which was said to be the CRM giant's biggest acquisition by some distance.

At the time of the announcement in June, Tableau CEO Adam Selipsky -- who will maintain his leadership role and run Tableau as an independent unit out of Seattle, reporting directly into Salesforce founder and co-CEO Marc Benioff -- said he could envision the "shared values and cultures between the companies".
