Meagen Eisenberg has been announced as the company's new CMO, and Andrew Casey as Chief Financial Officer.

Casey brings over 25 years of industry experience, most recently serving as the CFO of no-code digital adoption platform WalkMe and leading it through IPO.

Eisenberg specialises in demand generation, marketing operations and automation, and field marketing strategy and execution. She joins Lacework at a time of the company's rapid growth as the leading cloud-native application protection platform (CNAPP).

"As a marketing executive, business leader, and advisor I have always looked to identify opportunities with strong, customer-focused products that are loved, and teams that can execute," says Eisenberg. 

"Lacework checks this box and more, breaking through the noise with a truly disruptive product and a conviction to protect customers by changing the way the industry approaches security in the cloud. I'm excited to join this team of passionate problem solvers as we tackle one of the hardest challenges in the enterprise: securing the cloud."

A graduate of Yale School of Management, serving on the Board of Directors at companies like StackRox (acquired by Red Hat) and G2, and an advisor to companies like Redpanda Data, Loom, SumoLogic and Styra, her innovative, nimble, and logic-based mindset has contributed to 18 successful exits since 2011, including 3 IPOs and 15 mergers and acquisitions.

"Meagen deeply understands the customer-centric mindset that is crucial to our success," says Jay Parikh, CEO, Lacework. 

"With her extensive experience building world-class marketing organisations, enthusiasm for industry disrupting products, and ability to create deep understanding and connection with our customers and partners, Meagen will be a critical part of leading Lacework through our next phase of growth."

Casey’s understanding of the cloud technology industry runs deep, serving as SVP of Finance and Business Operations of ServiceNow as well as previous endeavors spearheading financial management for renowned software companies Oracle and Symantec.

Additionally, he led Finance for Hewlett-Packard’s Americas Enterprise Services division, managing more than $9 billion in annual revenue. Casey brings this experience to Lacework, where he will focus on leading the company toward continued growth and profitability.

“Andrew brings deep financial and operational understanding as he has helped build multiple outstanding companies through high growth,” says Parikh. “This breadth of experience will be critical not only for helping to lead Lacework through our next phase of growth, but also in building strong partnerships with our customers who are increasingly viewing cybersecurity as a board-level financial imperative.”

Casey remarks, “Lacework truly understands the security needs of modern businesses, and its approach to cloud security as a leading cloud-native application protection platform (CNAPP) sets it apart in a rapidly changing market.

“CFOs are taking an increasingly large role in influencing and prioritising cybersecurity decisions, and I look forward to using my experience to not only build Lacework for long-term success, but also to create enduring partnerships with our customers who are responsible for the financial security of their organisations.
