John, who previously served as the company's Vice President of WW Channel Sales, will oversee the expansion of SafeGuard Cyber's partner relationships across the MSSP, MDR and XDR industries. The company is expanding its service integrations with these providers to better protect these companies against the growing threat of sophisticated social engineering attacks. In recent years, nation-states and other advanced threat actors have increasingly focused on MSSPs and other technology supply chain companies in order to carry out large-scale attacks.

"John's track record and experience make him the ideal person to lead our strategic partnerships efforts, and he will play a critical role in expanding our business relationships, particularly within the MSSP industry," said Chris Lehman, CEO of SafeGuard Cyber. "With threats increasing for MSSPs, there is a need for new security solutions that can prevent sophisticated attacks early on in the kill-chain. Our advanced social engineering detection platform makes it possible for companies to stop these hard-to-detect attacks, even when the threat actors move outside of email to target employees through new communications channels that are typically unmonitored and unprotected."

John is an accomplished senior executive with over 20 years of experience contributing to some of the highest growth and most successful technology companies in the world. He has helped build or grow Channel organizations with companies like FireEye, Cofense, Axonius, XM Cyber, and Fidelis Cybersecurity. Most recently John was the VP of Global Partner Sales at ThirdPartyTrust, where he helped implement a 100% Channel Sales strategy, and was on the executive team that led to the company being acquired by Bitsight in 2022. John has excelled at architecting MSSP and MDR programs for cybersecurity vendors that help with overall revenue growth. John was named the Partnership Leaders 2021 Rising Channel Executive of the Year.
