When (Updated): Wednesday, October 12 th 12 – 1 pm PST Where: Virtual - Microsoft Teams Link Meet Sam     Sam is an accomplished leader, builder, and integrator of advanced analytics and data science teams across financial services, health care, consumer packaged goods, and technology at both agencies and consultancies. Sam has introduced, implemented, and used Alteryx products for more than 7 years. He is passionate about using data to find the hidden stories and patterns that solve problems, reach goals, and test hypotheses and believes Alteryx is the linchpin to the democratization of analytics. Sam’s first-hand experience as a practitioner puts him in a unique position to effectively hire against customer requirements and lead the Professional Services team as the direct delivery business grows. Alteryx Professional Services is the backbone of the company’s offering to implement our products and services on behalf of our customers, to “do it for them”. Professional Services currently has two roles: the Professional Services Engineer (PSE) and the Resident Consultant (RC). The PSE is a short-term technical consultant that delivers fixed-fee projects, custom development or optimization engagements, and handles some instructor-led training. The RC is a one-year embedded engagement for highly custom projects revolving around technical, analytics democratization, and process and automation opportunities. They are cream of the crop consultants who are as comfortable with business CxOs as they are technical leadership. Sam lives outside Kansas City in a Kansas suburb with his wife of 25 years, Jennifer, and they are incredibly proud of their two children, Spenser, 22, who graduated in May from the University of Iowa with a biochemistry degree and is in New Haven, CT for two years of brain cancer research at Yale’s Smilow Cancer Hospital while studying for the MCATs, and their daughter Katie, 19, a freshman at Kansas State University studying psychology and continuing her celebrated and award-winning choral experience. The Johnson family wouldn’t be complete without their 15-year-old Schnoodle, Annie. In his spare time Sam loves to smoke and grill a variety of meats for friends and family on his gas grill, Traeger pellet smoker, or Big Green Egg.
