Fink first discovered Tableau late one afternoon at her previous company. Three hours later, she was still "at play" with her data. "After just a few minutes using the product, I was getting answers to questions that were taking my company's programmers weeks to create. It was instantly obvious that Tableau was on a special mission with something unique to offer the world. I just had to be a part of it."
