SecurityGate.io, an integrated risk management platform for critical infrastructure, and the leader in automating cyber security risk assessments for companies who depend on industrial control systems, announces Matt Wilbanks as the company’s Chief Marketing Officer. Wilbanks will be responsible for global go-to-market strategy and marketing activities, and as a key member of the leadership team, developing the company’s over-all strategic vision.
Matt brings experience in leadership, sales and marketing from the technology space to SecurityGate.io. He served in sales and product leadership roles at Rackspace during periods of rapid growth. Later, Matt started and grew a SaaS (software as a service) startup, HelpSocial, which went on to be recognized as an innovative leader bringing digital transformation to the contact center space.
“We are very excited to welcome Matt to our team. His leadership and experience bring a set of strengths that will help us develop and scale our go-to-market strategy,” said Ted Gutierrez, SecurityGate.io Co-founder and CEO. “We know our customers and partners will be excited too. Matt will be working to help them maximize the value they gain from SecurityGate.io as they continue to rely on us for AI (artificial intelligence)-enhanced insights that come from cyber risk assessments across the people, processes and technology used in production operations.”
In addition to hiring Wilbanks, the company is beginning to execute on growth plans across Texas. “SecurityGate.io is rooted in Texas, headquartered in Houston, and will be opening an office in San Antonio. Organizations that depend on critical infrastructure are everywhere across Texas and the TOLA region, and we want to ensure we tap into our local talent pool to support our growing customer base. San Antonio is my hometown and since Matt and his family live in San Antonio, this was a great opportunity for us,” said Cherise Esparza, Co-Founder and CTO.
