REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Jan. 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Lastline®, the leader in AI-powered network security, is continuing to build a world-class organization with a key appointment to its leadership team. Today the company announced that it has named Gregory Enriquez as the company's Senior Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer (CRO), responsible for global direct, channel, and OEM sales. Greg is a consummate technology professional who most notably was the Worldwide Vice President of Sales at Mandiant prior to their acquisition by FireEye. In this role, Greg grew the Mandiant sales force from four people to more than fifty while producing rapid product revenue growth that led to the acquisition. Following the Mandiant acquisition, he led the global FireEye advanced technology sales team, nearly doubling the size of that organization.
After his tenure at FireEye, Greg held two successful CEO positions in technology startups: TrapX Security and Gigster. These roles developed insights into the cross-functional dynamics that are required for young companies to achieve success. Earlier in his career, Greg spent 22 years at IBM including a very successful role as IBM's Worldwide Vice President of industry software sales.
"Greg's successes in driving enterprise security sales growth together with his diverse general management pedigree make him uniquely qualified to lead Lastline's customer facing efforts," noted Lastline CEO, John DiLullo. "Our AI-powered network security solutions are experiencing truly explosive growth and Greg is the perfect leader to spearhead our aggressive expansion plans in this market."
