Security company Living Security has announced the appointments of two key leaders to help lead its business forward. Mark Collura has agreed to become the company's first chief revenue officer, while Chris Nickerson has been appointed to its advisory board.
Mr. Collura is a seasoned sales professional who joined Living Security as vice president of sales in 2020. He has previously served in sales roles with companies including SnapApp, PointClear, Aberdeen and L2 Wireless Inc.. As CRO, he will help the company to meet its growth targets, build a world-class team, and support a successful team alignment and structure strategy.
"As we continue to scale our direct sales operations, we are also adding new revenue streams through channels and partnerships," said Ashley Rose, CEO and co-founder of Living Security. "We are pioneering the new Human Risk Management category, which elevates our solution to a more strategic buying decision and requires us to define differentiated go-to-market strategies for our enterprise clients. These dual initiatives require a strategic long-term revenue-focused executive to unite functions across the full customer lifecycle."
Mr. Nickerson is a respected information security industry veteran who brings expertise and credibility to Living Security’s operations. He founded security conference organization BSides, as well as security consulting firm Lares.
"Like Living Security, Chris knows check-box security training has failed to reduce risk, and his 20 years of experience as a hacker gives us an edge as we help organizations protect themselves from attacks," said Living Security CSO and co-founder Drew Rose. "Chris built his career on helping companies find their weak spots by attacking them himself, often by taking advantage of the human factor. His insight will help us create training content and develop our Human Risk Management platform to protect our customers from the likes of him."
