Transmit Security have announced the appointment of Chris Curcio as Senior Director of Strategic Alliances and Partners for North America and Kaltrina Ademi as Director for Channel and Alliances in EMEA.
Curcio has over 25 years of experience in various positions within the IT industry and joins Transmit after almost 4 years as Global GSI Alliances Director at Forgerock during which he grew the GSI business by over 200%.
Curcio began his career as a Senior Software Engineer, building firmware for embedded processors automating IoT systems. He then moved to Oracle as an Identity Management/Security Sales Consultant and over his 12 years at the company, progressed to become a Sales Consulting Director, focusing on Digital Experience.
Ademi has more than 10 years of experience in the Security and Digital Identity space. She joins us from PlainID, where she served as Head of Partnerships, building their initial Channel Model and leading the EMEA Channel Strategy for the past 2 years.
Ademi also served as the Channel lead in Central Europe at Ping Identity for more than 4 years, where she was awarded as the highest performing Channel Manager, globally based on Partner generated Revenue.
Curcio chose Transmit because of their long-term commitment to making a partner programme work and the possibilities of Transmit’s solutions within that partner programme.
He said “I’ve been in the identity space for a long time – and Transmit’s technology is really interesting to me. Having the fraud and risk capabilities coupled with identity verification and a robust orchestration engine – puts us in a unique place.
“We have more entry points into customers than traditional CIAM vendors and can meet many needs of customers even if they have deployed a legacy CIAM vendor.”
Ademi said “The digital identity landscape is in a constant state of evolution, and Transmit Security’s solutions offer a distinctive approach. “They prioritise not only enhancing user experiences but also effectively countering cyber threats and preventing identity theft. This unique approach facilitates the convergence of Digital Identity and Cybersecurity teams, bridging two previously separate domains that are inherently interconnected.”
