Spirion has announced that it has expanded its executive team, adding five senior data security and technology leaders to advance the development of its data privacy management framework. Spirion’s new executive leadership includes Michael Scott previously from The Wendy’s Company as Chief Privacy and Security Officer; Stanley Curtis from Pilgrim Quality Solutions as Executive Vice President of Development; Scott Giordano from Robert Half Legal as Vice President and Senior Counsel, Privacy and Compliance; Jennifer Holtvluwer from Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise as Vice President of Demand Marketing; and Tom Palomaki from LogRhythm as Senior Vice President of Sales.
These leadership appointments follow the recent appointment of Kevin Coppins as President and CEO, accompanied by a US$20 million investment by The Riverside Company, Spirion’s private equity owner. Under the strategic guidance of Coppins, Spirion is using its latest funding to accelerate the development of products that strengthen its data privacy management framework.
“Thanks to our obsession with protecting data privacy, Spirion has experienced exceptional growth by reducing the technical complexity commonly associated with data privacy and making it more manageable for organisations of all sizes,” stated Coppins. “The addition of Mike, Stanley, Scott, Jennifer and Tom to our leadership team and the important depth of expertise they bring across data privacy, compliance and enterprise software further strengthens our ability to develop distinct security features that will continue to position Spirion ahead of the curve when it comes to trusted and effective data privacy management.”
