ReliaQuest has announced the appointment of Kara Wilson to its Board of Directors and Alex Bender as its Chief Marketing Officer.
Wilson has over 25 years of experience in driving go-to-market strategies and has played an integral role in growing the most influential technology companies, including Okta, FireEye, Rubrik and Cisco. She also currently serves as a board member for a number of companies including Paychex, KnowBe4, OneStream, and OutSystems in conjunction with her Senior Advisor role at KKR & Co.
“With over 70% of IT and security teams planning to budget for XDR over the next 6-12 months, ReliaQuest is uniquely positioned to transform this market,” said Wilson. “Providing a highly capable and essential cybersecurity solution is only half the battle – motivating people and establishing loyalty in a competitive market is the key differentiator and ReliaQuest got this right from the beginning. I look forward to my continued involvement in helping ReliaQuest scale its business.”
Bender has a 20-year career in brand marketing and driving growth in the most influential cyber brands, including Tripwire, McAfee, Archer Technologies, RSA and Mimecast (MIME) where he recently served as SVP of Global Marketing. In his new role, Bender will be spearheading ReliaQuest’s global brand and revenue marketing growth strategies as the organisation expands its operations to meet the industry’s increasing demand for unified extended detection and response (XDR) security solutions.
“At ReliaQuest, we are delivering a unified detection, investigation and response approach for top Fortune 1,000 organisations that is transforming security operations by delivering the right data, from the right systems at the right time, making security teams more efficient and focused to take decisive action,” said Bender.
Brian Murphy, ReliaQuest CEO and Co-Founder said: “It is a great honour for me to bring both Kara and Alex on board during this exciting chapter for ReliaQuest, as their combined leadership and experience is already helping shape our future operations and strategy to best serve our customers and prospects across the globe.”
