Scott Frisoni Joins Board of Halo Privacy

16 Mar, 2016, 17:07 ET from Halo Privacy, Inc.

WASHINGTON, March 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Halo Privacy, Inc., of Seattle, Chicago and Washington DC is pleased to announce the appointment of Scott Frisoni to its Board of Directors. Mr. Frisoni is a venture capital and private equity expert with 25 years of experience in investing, sales, and operations. 

Mr. Frisoni started his professional career in sales for Procter & Gamble where he received multiple performance awards. Mr. Frisoni built his expert technological skills at Magnitude Network, a provider of internet solutions for radio stations. He was the leader of sales and operations until the company was sold to CMGi. At PurchasePro, an eProcurement/Reverse Auction Software company, Mr. Frisoni held several positions and was a part of the leadership team that took the company public in late 1999. In early 2001, Mr. Frisoni and his team started InnerWorkings, an outsourced print management company. He drove the results as the leader of sales and operations and led the company to a very successful IPO in 2006. At Echo Global Logistics, an outsourced transportation management company, he was responsible for sales and M&A and led his team to another successful IPO at the end of 2009. Mr. Frisoni was one of the first investors at Groupon and advised them on a daily basis for a number of years. 

L. Kevin Kelly, Halo Privacy CEO, said, "Scott was one of the first people I thought of for the Halo board. He's a true entrepreneur. He has a tremendous sales & operations background and the corporate level experience to help Halo structure for rapid growth. Plus, Scott was a key player in five successful startups leading to four IPOs and a sale so we will benefit from his experience in positioning for an exit. Having Scott on the board is a game changer. I'm really glad it's worked out."

Mr. Frisoni added, "I've been looking for a company offering more than just technology to the secure comms space. When Halo approached me with their combination of ultra-high end technology with sophisticated training and tradecraft I recognized that this was unique. It's training & tradecraft that separate Halo from the one-size-fits-all tech-oriented competition. At Halo it's all about the application, so it's in pairing the technology with the company's world-class expertise in secure comms that the magic happens. This aligns with my personal philosophy that technology requires people and process in order to truly be effective. Also, startups are in my DNA so Halo is a natural fit."
