Industry’s leading provider of continuous network monitoring taps industry veteran with high-growth experience to continue expansion of regional sales teams
Tenable Network Security®, Inc., the leader in continuous network monitoring, today announced the hiring of industry veteran Lou Serlenga as the company’s new vice president Americas. Serlenga will lead and develop Tenable’s regional sales teams as the fast-growing cybersecurity company targets an expanded channel presence to fuel accelerated growth in the U.S., Canada and South America.
“Lou’s experience scaling sales organizations and leveraging the channel makes him the ideal leader for Tenable’s sales teams in the Americas,” said Ron Gula, CEO, Tenable Network Security. “His strong track record of success with security and networking companies gives him the right foundation to grow our already strong sales in the U.S. as well as to address emerging markets.”
Serlenga brings more than 20 years of technology sales and leadership experience to his new role at Tenable and will be charged with significantly expanding the sales organization and optimizing the company’s channel program. He most recently served as vice president of North America sales for Aruba Networks where he was responsible for designing and enabling its secure unified mobility solutions across the territory. While at Aruba, Serlenga helped the company achieve consistent year-over-year growth and spearheaded the construction of its channel team to establish strategic partnerships with value-added resellers, managed service providers and systems integrators.
“Tenable has an existing base of customers in the Americas that are leaders in their respective fields and I look forward to reinforcing those relationships as well as building new ones,” said Serlenga. “Hiring the right people is crucial, and my goal for Tenable is to bring in talent that will thrive in a customer centric, results oriented environment with a team focused on developing meaningful relationships with our customers and helping them solve their most critical security issues.”
