Jacques Nadeau is the Co-founder and CTO at Dremio. Prior to that, he was a Apache Drill Developer, leading the Apache Drill development efforts at MapR Technologies. He is an industry veteran with over 15 years of big data and analytics experience. Most recently, he was cofounder and CTO of search engine startup YapMap. Before that, he was director of new product engineering with Quigo (contextual advertising, acquired by AOL in 2007). He also built the Avenue A | Razorfish analytics data warehousing system and associated services practice (acquired by Microsoft).
