New senior vice president of global sales appointed to drive company’s worldwide expansion
WESTBOROUGH, Mass.: Courion Corporation, the leader in identity and access management (IAM) for access risk, yesterday announced that Scott Devens had joined the company as senior vice president of global sales.
Devens, who brings nearly three decades of global management experience to Courion, will help the company respond to escalating domestic and international demand for its IAM solutions across an increasingly diverse base of organizations. He is responsible for leveraging his deep knowledge and experience in direct and channel sales to guide the company’s continued worldwide expansion.
Devens joins Courion from Talend SA, a global technology company whose application integration business he launched in 2011, more than doubling the new business unit’s revenues and winning industry analyst recognition. He joined Talend in 2010 when it acquired Sopera, a service-oriented architecture company he expanded internationally as CEO. Prior to Sopera, Scott was vice president of global sales and alliances for Progress Software (NASDAQ: PRGS), where he led direct and channel sales operations. Scott joined Progress following its acquisition of IONA, a publically traded middleware software company where he was an executive officer and senior vice president of global sales. Scott has also held senior sales and general management positions at EMC.
“Scott has an impressive track record leading sales organizations, collaborating with cross-functional business units and achieving aggressive goals,” said Chris Zannetos, president and CEO, Courion. “He knows what it takes to grow businesses exponentially, and we’re confident he will do it again with Courion. Our company will benefit from his leadership and so will our customers.”
