SailPoint CMO Juliette Rizkallah: “The way I define success as a parent today is if my kids grow up to be happy adults”

I was raised to be top of the class in everything I did. In my early adulthood, I thought I wanted my kids to be at the top of everything they do as well. But now my view has changed because I have seen too many successful people being quite miserable in their lives. So the way I define success as a parent today is if my kids grow up to be happy adults. Because if they are happy, they will most likely succeed in what is important to them and let go of the rest.

I had the pleasure of interviewing Juliette Rizkallah. A marketing veteran with more than 20 years of experience, Juliette brings a wealth of expertise and pragmatism to SailPoint in her role as Chief Marketing Officer. No stranger to the world of enterprise security, Juliette leads the company’s worldwide marketing efforts, and is responsible for articulating the company vision, product solutions, technology innovations and business purpose to customers, partners and media around the globe. Juliette has held executive positions and was an agent of growth at some of the world’s largest technology companies, including Oracle, CA, Business Objects-SAP and Check Point Software. She started her career as a strategy consultant at Bain & Company and Arthur Andersen France where she acquired her business impact focus. Juliette holds an MBA from Harvard Business School and a BA from Ecole Superieure de Commerce de Paris (E.S.C.P.) in Paris, France. She is also a Forbes Technology Council contributing writer, an invitation-only organization for senior-level technology executives.
