Laura Rudas

Former European Politician; Executive Vice President, Palantir Technologies
Laura Rudas

Laura Rudas is EVP at Palantir Technologies. She works closely with Palantir's Founder and CEO to help the Silicon Valley company devise its strategy and expand its international footprint. To this end, Laura engages global leaders and senior executives from across industries and sectors, most often dealing with highly sensitive matters. Laura doesn't come to Palantir from a classic corporate career but has a diverse and colorful background, including over a decade in high-level politics. At 28 she became the youngest Secretary-General of a governing political party in Europe, while being an elected official in Parliament. After ten years in government and winning another national re-election campaign, Laura broke with tradition and resigned from all her political posts. She chose to pursue graduate studies as a Sloan Fellow at Stanford University's Business School instead. Today, Laura bridges the worlds of large, long established companies and politics with the digital revolution coming out of Silicon Valley.
