Kurt Greening has joined the company as sales head.

He brings over 20 years' experience leading sales teams, line of business operations, and digital transformation initiatives at companies such as Palo Alto Networks, NetApp and Xgility.

In his new role, he will build on Cerby's momentum as it comes out of stealth mode with a range of blue-chip customers and expand its footprint in target markets.

In addition to providing consulting services to early-stage companies, Greening was most recently Public Sector Cloud Security Leader at Palo Alto Networks, where he led the teams to triple revenue growth, aligned the operation around the product roadmap, and was recognised as a Top 20 Cloud Executive by Washington Executive.

At NetApp, the company grew from $800 million to over $6 billion during his tenure, becoming one of the five fastest-growing companies in its space; at Xgility, his team grew revenues five times over, and the company was listed on the Inc. 5,000 three times.

His teams have designed, planned, and executed over 100 cloud migration projects.

"We're delighted to have someone of Kurt's caliber join our growing team at Cerby," Cerby CEO and co-founder Belsasar Lepe says.

"He's built a stellar track record in growing the customer base and multiplying revenue, and long led the way in digital transformation projects.

"These skills are perfectly aligned with our own operation and our market's needs, and we're excited to see him lead our expansion into new companies and new markets."

Besides his work, Greening is increasingly recognised for his advocacy of key issues affecting the industry. He regularly writes and speaks on topics such as cloud security, revenue acceleration, and building a great corporate culture.
