Security-as-a-service provider Proofpoint has named Tracey Newell as its new executive vice president of worldwide sales.
Newell has an extensive background in SaaS, security and networking, along with many years of global leadership experience, Proofpoint said. She served in a similar capacity at Polycom, where she led a team of more than 1,000 sales, channels and systems-engineering professionals, with a $1.4 billion annual revenue responsibility. Before Polycom, Newell was SVP of Juniper's commercial business sales, focused on increasing reach and share in the enterprise and midmarket.
"It's an honor to join such a high-performing team at Proofpoint," Newell said. "Proofpoint's ability to leverage its cloud-based security-as-a-service platform, combined with advanced data analytics, provides our customers with the reliable protection required in today's business environment. I look forward to working with [CEO] Gary [Steele] and the team, while growing and scaling the business."
