New York, NY and Tel Aviv, IL (May 16th, 2022) -  Cymulate, the Extended Security Posture Management market leader, today announced the appointment of Federica Melis, as SVP Global Channels and Partner Alliances and Rudy Piekarski as Vice President of Sales, North America, to lead their respective sales strategies and help further expand its customer base.

Melis joins Wendy Hoey, VP Alliances of North America and a previous winner of CRN’s top Women of the Channel, in spearheading Cymulate’s go-to-market channel strategy.

She also held positions at tech giants such as Oracle, Citrix, Red Hat, and Dell, with her core focus on Fortune 1000 companies.

“I am very excited to join Cymulate,” said Federica. “Cybersecurity is a complex and interesting space where you have the opportunity to make a difference for companies and help protect them from real threats. Cymulate’s product is extremely compelling and I am looking forward to working alongside this dynamic team of professionals.”

With over 25 years of experience, Rudy is a seasoned sales executive with an impressive track record of leading teams and growing customer bases comprising Fortune 500 and Global 2000 companies as well as government organizations, most notably at LogRhythm. He has played a key role in taking several companies he has worked for to successful exits.

“Cymulate’s platform has broadened its capabilities over recent months and provides a simple, surefire route for companies to understand their cyber posture. I believe this technology will play a vital role in the cyber arsenal of security teams for years to come,” said Rudy. “I’m delighted to be joining the team, propelling the company to the forefront of CISO agendas and assisting in taking the company to its next growth level.”

“We are very excited to expand our workforce and welcome Federica and Rudy to our Cymulate family as we continue reaching our key milestones,” said Eyal Wachsman, CEO and Co-Founder of Cymulate. “They are both stellar executives, with rich experience, who will contribute great outcomes for our company.
