“We are in the midst of a profound growth period within the global identity market. Digital commerce, increasing cybersecurity concerns, and the remote work and privacy impacts of the pandemic are collectively fueling intense demand for identity and access management innovation,” said John Pritchard. “It is genuinely refreshing to be part of a company that recognizes the importance of simplifying identity to help businesses adapt securely and quickly to ongoing change.”
In addition to Pritchard’s wealth of experience, McDonald joins the executive team with more than 20 years’ experience building and managing information security programs, and will be responsible for info security, customer experience, IT, operations and M&A: “I am looking forward to leveraging my experience in the security leadership of organizations across the technology, education and medical sectors to redefine the security strategy for the Radiant Logic,” comments Chad McDonald. “I’m excited to be collaborating with some of the industry’s best minds in identity management to establish and maintain the company’s security visions and strategies.”
Prior to Radiant Logic, McDonald served as an executive leader in a number of high-profile organizations including Imperva, Northrup Grumman, Arxan Technologies, and Optiv, where he defined the security strategy for a $70 billion dollar merger between two technology giants. McDonald also implemented the security and technical integrations of five acquisitions and attained FedRAMP-in-Process status during his tenure as CISO at Digital.ai.
“The growing industry need for an unified Identity and Access Management foundation has made it the perfect time to onboard two new executives and expand the leadership team. With John and Chad’s 50 plus years of combined experience, I am excited about the impact their talent will have to further propel Radiant Logic’s presence as the leader in the identity data fabric market,” comments Joe Sander, CEO of Radiant Logic. “They share our commitment to simplifying identity data by making it a reusable business resource and ensuring Radiant Logic continues to be trusted by the world’s largest organizations to address identity complexity.”
