Xenon Partners has announced that Donnie Hasseltine has joined Xenon as Chief Security Officer. With Xenon Partners’ focus on technology, specifically SaaS, it is important to guarantee security and compliance for both Xenon and its portfolio companies.
“Donnie’s leadership and expertise in cybersecurity will ensure Xenon stays ahead of the game both for compliance and protection,” says partner Teri Wilson. “He is a great fit with our organization and part of our commitment to putting security first.”
With customers that span across the globe and a continually evolving technological landscape, Xenon portfolio companies must manage diversified security regulations and evolving cyber threats. However, so must their customers. Standing at the forefront of cyber security enables self-protection but is also an opportunity to differentiate from peers in the current B2B Software as a Service (SaaS) space. This is particularly the case given a shortage of readily available cyber security experts in the employment market and the growing impact of cyber crime in recent years.
Donnie comes to Xenon after a distinguished career of planning operations and leading high performing organizations with the US Marine Corps.
