TAMPA — National cybersecurity leader ReliaQuest, one of the fastest-growing tech firms in the region, has added two new executives: Erin Sweeney was named vice president of product marketing and Jim Galley was appointed vice president of business development.
Sweeney most recently worked for another cybersecurity firm, while Galley held business development management roles at streaming giants Netflix and Hulu, according to a press release.
The new executives were brought in to help to increase demand for Tampa-based ReliaQuest's Software-as-a-Service security platform, GreyMatter, according to a statement. GreyMatter works with Fortune 1,000 companies’ security portfolios, using an end-to-end automation that speeds detection and response and continuous measurement to validate program effectiveness, the release adds.
"ReliaQuest's momentum has continued through the current economic environment, as security teams double down on improving security posture by achieving centralized visibility and end-to-end automation across their environments," ReliaQuest President and CEO Brian Murphy says in the release. "We're excited to add new leaders who have brought iconic solutions to market and whose efforts will expand the global reach of our SaaS security platform and its partner ecosystem."
Sweeney joins ReliaQuest after an 11-year tenure at publicly traded cybersecurity firm Splunk, where she held a variety of roles across solution, industry, field and customer marketing. While there, her efforts helped drive the growth of the company from a start-up with $8 million in annual revenue to a $2 billion industry leader, the release states. Prior to Splunk, Sweeney held marketing roles at Visible Path and EFI.
Meanwhile, at content-streaming platform Netflix, Galley oversaw business development and had end-to-end responsibility for partnership sourcing, negotiation, execution and commercial success with entities that included Amazon, Comcast and Verizon. Before Netflix, he led business development activities and strategic partnerships at Hulu. He started his career in finance, which included roles at Disney, PwC, and an investment bank, Trinity Capital, handling mergers and acquisitions, the release adds.
ReliaQuest works with more than 250 Global 2000 enterprises on cybersecurity issues and solutions. It has offices in Las Vegas, Salt Lake City and Dublin, Ireland.
