Joe Lea

President at Shift5


Joe has held numerous technical and executive roles during his career, most recently leading Product from an early stage at Armis and Tanium, both high flying startups and Forbes Cloud 100 standouts, where he built the teams and operating models that spawned portfolios of offerings spanning the fields of security and systems management. He holds a PhD in Cognitive Science which has informed his perspective on technology and led to numerous patents and award winning product deliveries.

Joe is joining the executive team as President working out of the Shift5 Headquarters in Rosslyn VA, where his focus and passion will be on building a world class team and scaling Shift5 as a Product company that dominates the markets around securing and managing fleets of the world’s most critical assets.

When he’s not busy at work or spending time with his family, Joe speaks about his experience competing in some of the world’s most grueling 100 mile mountain ultra-marathons, which he argues are not so different from high tech startups.
