"Donald joins our team at a time of exciting growth for the company," said Nate Fick, CEO of Endgame. "His keen legal judgment and proven track record in complex business environments will be tremendous assets as we continue building the business. We're thrilled to welcome him."
Most recently, Saelinger served as the General Counsel, Chief Compliance Officer and Secretary of Opower, Inc., the world's leading of provider of SaaS-based customer engagement software to electric and gas utilities. In this role, he was responsible for overseeing the full legal, compliance and data protection portfolio for the company, and also played an active role in helping shape the firm's business decisions and strategy. Notably, he was instrumental in the recent sale of Opower's business to Oracle.

He began his legal career as an attorney in the New York and San Francisco offices of Covington & Burling, where he focused on mergers and acquisition and capital markets transactions.
"As a business-focused attorney that prizes entrepreneurialism and innovation, I'm excited to join Endgame and contribute to their mission to protect enterprises from the most advanced attacks," said Saelinger. "I look forward to being part of such a talented team and helping support Endgame's growth in the sector."
