It is my privilege to announce that Bryan Gulachenski will be stepping in starting today to lead StopBadware as the new interim executive director. Bryan is a security industry veteran with over 20 years of experience managing and developing security programs in the financial services, insurance, and government sectors. He originally cut his teeth in security engineering at GTE and MITRE before moving into the financial sector, where he worked for companies like Fidelity and John Hancock Financial Services. His most recent role was VP and Director of Information Security at the Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston.
On top of his impressive credentials, Bryan also happens to be a thoughtful, genuinely nice guy with great team-building skills. Both the StopBadware Board and our staff are excited to have him around to drive the next phase of StopBadware’s development; the whole team is looking forward to working with him over the coming months to make an even bigger impact in creating a safer Web for everyone.
I will be around this week helping Bryan with the transition, and I will continue to serve on StopBadware’s Board of Directors. Thanks to all for your support and encouragement during this exciting change!
