risk3sixty would like to welcome Ryan McGowan to the team as our new Chief Revenue Officer (CRO). Ryan brings more than 20 years of industry experience to the risk3sixty team and has been tasked with leading the team into their next phase of growth.
Most recently, Ryan was the VP of Sales (Cloud/Tech) at Coalfire, an independent Cyber Risk Management Advisory & Assessment services organization, where he led multiple teams across multiple industries, with his most recent emphasis being new client acquisition and account optimization across Coalfire’s most strategic customers.
During Ryan’s 14-year tenure, Coalfire grew from less than 30 people and two offices to more than 750 employees, a dozen offices and an international presence. Ryan exited Coalfire following the recent acquisition by the private equity group Apax Partners.
“It’s an exciting time for me to be joining risk3sixty. What I found to be most compelling about risk3sixty was a client portfolio that belies its size, a talented group of consultants, principled leadership, and a culture of high achievement,” said McGowan. “I’m eager to embrace the brand, become a ‘Strange Renegade’, and build a world-class sales and marketing organization built on the risk3sixty team’s core values: Grit, Craftsmanship, Steadfast, Freedom, and Team.”
“Ryan understands risk3sixty’s client profile and relevant pain points, go-to-market strategy and client-centered service in a way that few executives do, and he’s got a proven track record of leading a cyber risk, security and compliance company through various growth stages,” said Christian Hyatt, co-founder and Managing Director of risk3sixty. “Ryan’s joining the risk3sixty team serves as further validation of our place in the market, and we couldn’t be more excited to be bringing him into the risk3sixty phalanx.”
