RiskIQ Appoints Three New Executives to Accelerate Growth of Award-winning Digital Threat Management Business

SAN FRANCISCO, July 06, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RiskIQ, the leader in digital threat management, today announced the expansion of its management team with three new executive appointments to fortify growth and customer service for its award-winning Digital Threat Management Platform.

The new executives were appointed at a crucial time for RiskIQ, as the company continues to grow and seize new sales and partnership opportunities created by continued advancements of the RiskIQ platform and RiskIQ Community Edition, which offers free versions of its products for cyberthreat hunters and defenders.

Nick Puetz will join RiskIQ as vice president of Customer Success, building out RiskIQ's efforts in creating, operationalizing, and fine-tuning digital defense programs for customers. Previously, Puetz led Optiv's executive and management consulting functions, with a focus on helping organizations enhance their security posture, reduce risk, and meet compliance initiatives through a variety of services.

"As organizations continue to evolve their digital strategies, I believe there is a huge opportunity for companies like RiskIQ to provide thought leadership, leading practices, and technology across the digital threat management landscape," Puetz said. "Customer success plays a key role in helping organizations realize tangible value across their technology stack and gives customers a voice that can help drive future features and enhancements."

The company is also pleased to appoint Jenna Raby as vice president of Asia Pacific and Canada. Raby, who has been with RiskIQ for seven years, helping build the company in strategic enterprise accounts in the U.S. and Europe, will be responsible for all aspects of RiskIQ new market development in these regions; including sales, channel, and marketing development.

Clarence Cheuk will step into RiskIQ's management team as vice president, General Counsel. Cheuk has led RiskIQ's legal department for nearly three years, providing support to the board of directors, to the executive team, and across all departments. Cheuk will also now expand his role to co-head of RiskIQ's People & Culture department, which is comprised of the recruiting and human resources teams.

"We couldn’t be more excited to have Nick, Jenna, and Clarence as key members contributing to the RiskIQ family and our success,” said RiskIQ CEO Lou Manousos. “We call upon their passion and experience to help us lead our teams toward achieving goals and best serving our customers."

The new hires and appointments will build on the momentum created by several recent awards and honors, including RiskIQ’s inclusion in the JMP Securities’ 2017 Super 60 Report, a compendium of the hottest privately held internet security, networking, and storage companies, and Red Herring’s elite Top 100 North American Startup listing.

Manousos added, “I’m proud of our recent recognitions, and with this fantastic team in place, look forward to continued success as we help companies build out their digital defenses to protect their online presence, operations, and customers.”
