ThreatBlockr appoints Bill Franklin as business development head
Bill Franklin, formerly of Avant Communications, NetApp and EMC, has been appointed as business development head.
With over 10 years of technology sales experience, Franklin joins ThreatBlockr after working in various sales and IT-related roles.
In this role, he will establish a community of partners focused on helping customers enhance their network security to protect them against the latest threats. Partner organisations include MSPs, Channel Partners/VAR, and Trusted Advisors.
"It's wonderful to be part of ThreatBlockr and have the opportunity to work on their innovative approach to network security," Franklin says.
"Firewalls aren't cutting it anymore, so organisations need a better way to block threats at scale without overworking their existing security stacks.
"ThreatBlockr ultimately solves that problem and fills in a missing puzzle piece.
"As a longtime cybersecurity professional, it's amazing to be part of the team who's at the forefront of this trend in cybersecurity."
The team at ThreatBlockr has continued to grow throughout 2022, with the additions of George Just as chief revenue officer and Courtney Brady as marketing vice president.
"ThreatBlockr is seeing tremendous growth in our MSP and MSSP business," ThreatBlockr CEO Brian McMahon says.
"Adding Bill to the team will deepen our focus in this space and strengthen our ability to execute.
"He's a deeply talented cybersecurity expert. Having worked at and with some of the strongest and most recognisable technology brands, he has a critical understanding of what it takes to drive growth and operational excellence."
