Meet the Team
Our fearless leaders that lead things in ways that only leaders can lead.
Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer
Joe started in IT and security in the days of dial-up, has led the SOC of the world’s largest MSSP, and worked at several notable cybersecurity software providers from startups to enterprises. Joe attended the Georgia Institute of Technology after applying over Telnet, but was self-taught from age of fifteen on both offensive and defensive IT security. His IT security experience only pales in comparison to his knowledge of single origin coffee and methods to brew.
Co-Founder and Chief Solutions Architect
Not everyone has guarded the secret sauce recipe of McDonalds, but that was Ethan’s first security job in the SOC. Ethan has worked to support multiple organizations while in the Ciphertechs SOC, and implemented complex security programs as a consultant at McAfee. A respected solutions architect at Tufin, and a reputed basketball player at Trinity Christian College, he now focuses on solving the complex challenges in cybersecurity with elegant simplicity.
Head of Strategy and Operations
Dan has worked across various roles in IT and security companies since what he refers to as the naughty auties. Dan cut his cybersecurity teeth at Core Security working alongside penetration testing teams, led Dynamo Software’s marketing through acquisition, and successfully launched Tufin’s lucrative integrated cybersecurity solution marketplace. A graduate of Skidmore College and former fishmonger, he is happiest when he can hear waves in the background.
Head of Engineering
Nate is a modern day renaissance man of IT and networking having worked across helpdesk, network engineering and architecture, and software development. Prior to appNovi Nate worked at Progressive Insurance, Windstream, and Tufin with a track record of promotion and leadership. A double graduate of Malone University, Nate is a man of the land and savant of the code, and operates a functional farm.
Kent authors both excellent code and words, making him an indelible asset to implementing innovative features in appNovi. California-raised and recently returned, Kent has aspirations to have his own olive grove as the perfect setting to ponder how he’d write his own operating system. Dedicated to his local community and a passionate collaborator, Kent is both able and excited to help solve complex problems.
