Karl Riddett loves to help others. Whether it is in his role as Regional Solutions Lead at InterWorks, helping clients with the best possible solution or helping other men who have struggled with addictions, Karl is eager to give his life for the betterment of other people.
Karl is a passionate person. When meeting him, you’ll quickly figure out he loves his family. He married his high school sweetheart, and together they have three boys and an adopted daughter. Between helping his wife rescue dogs and cats, Karl does try to get out for a run or play the occasional round of golf. The Riddetts are also a musical family, with Karl joining his boys on a jam session from time to time with his 12-string guitar.
Karl’s passion for life and his desire to help others comes from a previous 18-year combined career at Chick-fil-A and Arby’s where he was always connected to data, analytics and database systems. He found Tableau in 2013 and immediately saw its “game-changing” potential. From his education at Georgia Tech in industrial engineering, where he loved operations research and statistics, to his creative outlets, Tableau and data visualizations are the perfect devices to help Karl share the stories hidden in data.
Ultimately, what makes him come alive the most is knowing that he truly helped someone get better at whatever that might be.
