Respected industry leader brings finance and global business expertise to lead Fidelis Cybersecurity’s growth
Fidelis Cybersecurity, the leading provider of products and services for detecting and stopping advanced cyber attacks, today announced the appointment of Richard Darer as Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and Senior Vice President. Darer joins an exceptional executive team focused on driving global sales, innovation and business excellence.
“Rick’s demonstrated track record of success in driving rapid growth and taking companies through the IPO process is aligned perfectly with our company strategy,” said Peter George, CEO, Fidelis Cybersecurity. “His depth and breadth of building world class technology companies and high-performing teams will enable us to create value and deliver on our promises to customers.”
Darer joins Fidelis with more than 20 years of finance experience at Fortune 100 and emerging software companies. Most recently, Rick consulted with rising technology companies including Rapid7, Dyn and Everbridge. As CFO of Gomez Inc., he led the company’s successful sale to Compuware and before that, he grew Unica Corp fivefold resulting in a successful IPO and later sale to IBM. His career spans finance and operational positions at Computervision and General Electric among others.
“This is an exciting time to join Fidelis,” Darer said. “The company’s momentum following the acquisition by Marlin Equity and purchase of Resolution1 Security positions the company to bridge the gap between network and endpoint solutions. Enterprises face significant challenges in confronting cyber attacks. We are upping our game to become their chosen solutions provider.”
