Today we are pleased to announce the appointment of Brian Ahern as our new Chairman and Chief Executive Officer here at Threat Stack. Passionate about building companies around disruptive technologies, Brian comes to Threat Stack from Industrial Defender, a global leader in cybersecurity, compliance and change management solutions for industrial control systems, where he was Founder and CEO.
Since founding Industrial Defender, Inc. in 2002, Ahern was able to grow the company to serve more than 400 companies in 25 countries, building the brand into the global leader in security for industrial control systems, and which he saw through a successful acquisition by Lockheed Martin in April 2014. An early innovator in cyber security, Ahern is looking to apply his successful business and security experience, this time in the cloud security market with Threat Stack.
As Chairman and CEO, Ahern’s first priorities will be building and expanding upon our world-class team of the industry’s best talent and focusing on customer-driven technology development in support of Threat Stack’s increased demand.
“I am extremely excited about the opportunity to lead Threat Stack into its next stage of growth,” said Ahern. “It is one of those perfect storm scenarios where you have the right product, market demand, and team all coming together at the right time to create a world-class, sustainable, disruptive cloud security company”.
Our entire team as well as our Board of Directors agrees that his entrepreneurial spirit and experience in transforming startups into global market leaders makes him the logical choice to bring our company to the next level.
Join us in welcoming Brian to the team!
