DeNexus hires sales and engineering security specialist for EMEA
DeNexus has hired sales and engineering security specialist Víctor Manuel Aguilar Gutiérrez as part of its strategy to increase the reach of its cyber risk quantification and management tools in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
DeNexus Inc., a provider of cyber risk quantification and management tools for large industrial organisations, global re/insurers and investors in insurance linked securities (ILS), has appointed Aguilar as vice president of sales (EMEA).
Aguilar, who will be based at the firm’s premises in Lugano, Switzerland brings with him 15 years of experience in sales and engineering security for large industrial corporations.
Most recently, he was regional director for Iberia & Turkey at Nozomi Networks in the Ticino region of southern Switzerland for the last two years, after having joined the firm in 2018 as a sales engineer. Prior to that, he was security consulting engineer for EMEA at Cisco Systems.
In his remit as VP of Sales (EMEA), Aguilar is tasked with extending DeNexus’ value proposition in the cyber risk quantification and management sphere to the UK, Europe, Middle East and Africa. DeNexus opened its Lugano office in July this year with the aim of creating a new hub of cyber knowledge in Switzerland. The firm also recently opened an office in London as part of its strategy to build out its cyber expertise in Europe.
DeNexus founder and chief executive officer Jose Seara said: “We are very excited to welcome Víctor to the DeNexus team. With his appointment, we are marking a further step on our geographical growth path. By leveraging Víctor’s expertise and network of contacts, we look forward to empowering more industrial enterprises and risk underwriters in EMEA to quantify and manage cyber risk exposure on a continuous, self-adaptive basis.”
Aguilar added: “I am thrilled to join the ambitious, forward-thinking team at DeNexus. In my capacity as VP of Sales (EMEA), I am looking forward to being part of a larger mission to build the global standard of industrial cyber risk quantification for insurance agencies, shareholders, investors and boards.”
This news follows an intense period of activity for DeNexus. In October, it launched DeRISK 5.0 Platform, an updated version of its evidence-based, data-driven cyber risk quantification and management tool that aims to help risk owners (industrial organizations, underwriters, reinsurers, and ILS investors) better understand, mitigate, and transfer the risks associated with cyber breaches.
