About 30 employees moved into the new company, with offices at that time in Quebec City and in Palo Alto, California.[4] Louis Têtu, a Quebec native and former CEO of Taleo and Baan, joined Coveo in 2008 as CEO.[5] To support Coveo's growth, the executive team brought on Mark Floisand as Chief Marketing Officer in the spring of 2016.[6] In 2017, Coveo invested 5 million dollars Canadian into opening up an office in Montreal, with 25 new hires, and approximately 25 more planned for the office at the time.[7] Since then, well over a hundred new employees have joined the Montreal office, which has expanded onto additional floors of the historic Gare Windsor building.
