SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ - Nexusguard, a pioneering Internet security solutions provider, today announced the appointment of Hope Frank to the post of Global Chief Marketing Officer. Ms. Frank was named a global top 50 CMO by both Forbes and CEO World in 2014.

Frank is an industry veteran with 20 years of experience in which she worked with brands such as Apple, Google, Visa and Bank of America. She established global brand standards for NIKE, launched the Starbucks Wi-Fi network, led marketing for George Lucas' THX and was the CMO for Olevia HDTV to direct a digital, broadcast and creative $20M global campaign with ESPN SportsCenter and X Games. She is no stranger to international work and has led teams in Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and United Arab Emirates.
"With Nexusguard's recent expansion into the Americas, we're accelerating the development of our global footprint," said Jolene Lee, Nexusguard's Chief Executive Officer. "We need an executive with a clear voice to break through the noise and build our brand presence, a leader who can communicate our messages through every available channel and raise our profile on a global scale. Hope came to us exactly at the right time in our journey, and she fits the bill perfectly."
Frank is a founding member of The CMO Club, on the Board of Advisors of CMO Council, and is an advocate for Women in Technology in Asia and Brazil. She was awarded the Digital Visionary Award in 2011 by VIV and Forbes.
"Joining Nexusguard is an exceptional opportunity, given our role as the leading authority on DDoS attack mitigation and prevention," said Frank.
