Cybera bolsters executive team with hires

Security services company adds senior VPs of marketing/strategy and sales

Cybera Inc., announced today it has hired Greg Tennant as senior vice president of marketing and strategy and Ron Robinson as senior vice president of sales.

Additionally, Cybera has promoted Scott Wolfe to vice president of engineering. 

The Nashville-based company made the moves to help its executive team more effectively align management with strategic transition and rapid growth.

“Cybera’s transition from selling network-based security services to our new Cybera ONE cloud-based secure application platform has repositioned our company for rapid growth,” Cliff Duffey, Cybera CEO, said in a release. “By adding these industry leaders to our executive team, we are continuing our impressive trajectory, and becoming the preferred security and application delivery solution for distributed enterprises. Our successful market position is able to attract top-flight talent, which will be the key to driving our future success.”

Tennant (on the right in our photo above) has more than 22 years of leadership experience, which includes starting, operating and selling two separate SaaS-focused companies. He previously served as senior vice president of the secure application division of Argus Systems Group, where he launched the company’s secure web appliance division. He also led the turnaround of fiber and Ethernet-based carrier Epik Communications, which Progress Telecom later acquired.

Tennant holds a bachelor’s degree in marketing and economics from Cornell University. He has studied in the MBA programs at Duke University Fuquay School of Business and at Cornell’s Johnson Graduate School of Management.

Robinson (on left in top photo) previously served as a regional director for Intermedia Communications, where he helped grow the company’s revenue by 400 percent. Robinson also has held various sales management roles for Sprint, Telenet and GTE. He holds a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering and a MBA from the University of Washington.
