Senior Product Manager

Product Manager

For the Privileged Password Management pillar.

In 2020, I successfully launched our Password Safe product to be consumed as-a-Service (SaaS) through our new “Password Safe Cloud” deployment offering within Azure.

For most of 2021, I was the Product Manager for DevOps Secrets Safe, where the customer base was increased by over 10x within 11 months.

My primary lens in products is to place ease of use at the forefront of cybersecurity.

Lead Engagement Manager

BeyondTrust’s first Engagement Manager.
Spearheaded defining processes and policies that impacted Sales, Sales Engineers, and Professional Services departments.

Mentored and trained other EMs in both BeyondTrust products, as well as policies for how the EM team operates.

Performed Scoping Calls daily, to gather requirements that would, in turn, be placed into Statements of Work or Description of Services.

Developed many iterations of Professional Services packages. In turn, this optimized our ProServe practice by minimizing the quantity of custom SOWs/DOSs written up.

Defined the rules of engagement, in terms of defining processes Sales and Sales Engineers must follow to get the services our customers require. Created simple flow charts to ease adoption of processes.

Created Architecture Diagrams that are used pervaisively across entire organization.
