On the heels of funding round, RiskRecon opens a second office in Utah and adds several key positions
Salt Lake City, Utah -- October 15, 2018 -- On the heels of its recent $25 million Series B funding, led by Accel, RiskRecon today announced two key hires: Kim Ann King, who will serve as Vice President of Marketing, and Jon Whitlock, who will serve as Director of Partner Programs. RiskRecon has also opened a second office in Utah to accommodate the company’s growing operations, development, and marketing staff.
“Mitigating third-party cyber risk is one of the fastest growing segments in today’s technology landscape,” said Kelly White, CEO and Co-founder of RiskRecon. “As we look to grow our business, the talents and experience that Kim and Jon bring will give our sales and marketing efforts a tremendous boost.”
King, a veteran of the Boston start-up scene, has helped to successfully launch and grow several organizations, including Open Market (formerly on Nasdaq as OMKT), Akamai Technologies (Nasdaq: AKAM), and Bit9, now known as Carbon Black (Nasdaq: CBLK). She is the author of “The Complete Guide to B2B Marketing: New Tools, Tactics, and Techniques to Compete in the Digital Economy,” published by Pearson Financial Times Press in May 2015.
“RiskRecon offers the only solution that enables companies to truly understand their third-party cyber risk, prioritize and act on that risk, and focus remediation only on the risk that really matters to them,” said King. “By being able to pinpoint issues with incredible accuracy and detail, RiskRecon gives its customers the power to solve third-party cyber risk at scale -- quickly, easily, and efficiently.”
Whitlock brings extensive channel development and alliances experience working with software and cybersecurity companies, SIs, VARs and MSSPs.
