Secucloud appoints former E-POST managing director Mark Rees as its new COO
Agile leadership expert to reinforce the security firm's management
During the course of his career, Mark Rees has been managing director of E-POST Development GmbH in Berlin, a subsidiary of Deutsche Post. In that position, he led a team of over 200 staff in agile DevOps teams and had supervisory duties as well as complete budget responsibility for the IT security, DevOps, quality assurance, operations and user experience areas. In his new role as COO, Mark Rees brings to Secucloud his expertise in agile leadership, as well as his experience managing cross-functional IT organisations in the media and IT security industries.
“With its innovative security concept, Secucloud is delivering exactly the right response to security questions in this era of the internet of things – the response that customers need today to protect themselves efficiently from threats like phishing, ransomware and data espionage,” says Mark Rees. “This idea has huge potential, but it can only be fully leveraged with efficient and dynamic company operations. This is why I intend to use my management experience to steadily and systematically develop the company and drive the business forward.”
