ReliaQuest, a leader in enterprise cybersecurity, announced the addition of three accomplished executives to its industry-leading team: Ken Smith as chief revenue officer, Kristy Ayala as vice president of demand generation, and Seth Goldhammer as vice president of product marketing. These executives bring deep background in the cybersecurity industry and innovative enterprise technologies, as well as proven success driving global sales and marketing results through phases of hyper growth.
"As enterprises grapple with increasing cyber threats and a confusing array of tools to address them, the timing could not be better for ReliaQuest to double down on these hires to lead our GreyMatter platform to market," said Brian Murphy, CEO, ReliaQuest. "Ken, Kristy and Seth not only bring a wealth of domain experience in cybersecurity and business-to-business SaaS, but they will help ReliaQuest aggressively scale as we deliver coordinated visibility and response to enterprises across the U.S. and beyond."
As chief revenue officer, Ken will oversee ReliaQuest's entire sales function, including outside sales, alliances, account management, and sales engineering. Ken brings more than 25 years of experience to ReliaQuest and comes from FireEye, where he served as VP of sales for the past five years and was responsible for a team of more than 100 and annual sales exceeding $200 million. Prior to FireEye, Ken held sales leadership roles at Alfresco, Lithium Technologies, and Adobe Systems.
"I am thrilled to join the ReliaQuest team and help lead its next phase of growth," said Smith. "No organization in cybersecurity better understands the challenges that enterprises face today. The GreyMatter platform is like nothing I've seen in the industry and enables CISOs to deliver consistent results in the face of threats, while still continuing to evolve at the speed of their businesses."
