SAN FRANCISCO -- March 17, 2015 -- RiskIQ, the company that enables organizations to detect and mitigate customer-facing threats, today announced the appointment of Jeff Baeth as chief financial officer. Baeth brings nearly 30 years of strategic financial management expertise to RiskIQ, in mergers and acquisitions, strategic planning and lender relationship management. He will manage finance and administration, legal and human resources for the company.
“Jeff has a proven track record for helping build and manage the growth of successful enterprise technology vendors,” said Elias Manousos, CEO of RiskIQ. “His financial and business management skills, domain expertise and experience with emerging technology vendors makes him a perfect fit for RiskIQ.”
As a senior vice president at VeriSign, Baeth played a key role in the company's growth from a small venture-backed start-up to a global corporation, which included several financing rounds, two successful IPOs and a $500m bond raise. He was also part of the VeriSign M&A team that conducted the acquisition of Jamster, Network Solutions, and m-Cube, among others. More recently, he served as CFO for Devicescape, a provider of wireless software technologies, and JAJAH Inc., a VoIP provider acquired by Telefónica S.A. Baeth currently serves as an advisory board member at Funding Wonder, Inc., a marketplace that bypasses financial intermediaries by directly connecting investors and small businesses to help each achieve their financial goals.
“RiskIQ is experiencing significant growth based on its unique ability to provide large enterprises with visibility and intelligence into security risks that exist on their web and mobile properties,” said Baeth. “Elias has built a stellar management team that has maintained its entrepreneurial roots while scaling to meet the increasingly complex security needs of some of the world's leading financial and Internet companies. I am pleased to be joining RiskIQ at such an exciting time in its evolution.”
