Elise Hayes has been appointed as strategic alliance director for North America. Hayes will be working to expand IriusRisk's partner relationships in North America as the company capitalises on high demand in the market.
Hayes joins with nearly two decades of experience in sales, business development, and strategic alliances in software companies. Prior to joining IriusRisk, she was the Strategic Alliance Director at Equifax, where she was responsible for driving and executive key partner solution strategies. Before that, she held business development and strategy roles at Softchoice, Rackspace and Lumen Technologies, where she also led and executed joint go-to-market strategies with partners.
"I am delighted to join IriusRisk, a company that is helping developers and security architects worldwide create applications that are secure by design. I am looking forward to building on IriusRisk's success by expanding their reach in North America and supporting them in establishing strategic partnerships," Hayes says.
"This extremely prescient approach to security is the future of software development and I could not be happier to be part of the team at the forefront of this trend," Hayes adds.
"We are delighted to bring Elise on board. Her experience in building strategic alliances with some of the largest systems integrators and advisory firms in the world will be invaluable to IriusRisk as we continue to aggressively pursue international expansion," IriusRisk senior vice president and general manager of North America Tom Smith says.
"The relationships Elise has in North America will help us double down on the success we have already experienced in the market and further our secure design mission through strategic partnerships."
