TAMPA — ReliaQuest, a fast-growing enterprise cybersecurity firm, has made three appointments to its executive leadership team.

Ken Smith has been named chief revenue officer, while Kristy Ayala will serve as vice president of demand generation and Seth Goldhammer as vice president of product marketing. All three new hires, according to a press release, will help accelerate market growth for GreyMatter, ReliaQuest’s signature software-as-a-service (SaaS) cybersecurity product.

"As enterprises grapple with increasing cyber threats and a confusing array of tools to address them, the timing could not be better for ReliaQuest to double down on these hires to lead our GreyMatter platform to market," ReliaQuest CEO Brian Murphy states in the release. "Ken, Kristy and Seth not only bring a wealth of domain experience in cybersecurity and business-to-business SaaS, but they will help ReliaQuest aggressively scale as we deliver coordinated visibility and response to enterprises across the U.S. and beyond."

According to the release, Smith comes to ReliaQuest from FireEye, where he served as vice president of sales for the Milpitas, Calif.-based cybersecurity company. Ayala previously worked at ConnectWise, another Tampa tech firm, where she led digital marketing and demand generation. Goldhammer is a veteran of Boulder, Colo.-based LogRhythm, where he held various leadership roles in product management and product marketing.

Headquartered in Tampa, ReliaQuest also has offices in Las Vegas, Salt Lake City and Dublin, Ireland.
