Fusion Risk Management Continues Strategic Growth, Welcomes New Members to Executive Team
Fusion Risk Management, Inc. (“Fusion”), a leading provider of business continuity risk management software and services, announced today that it has named Cory Cowgill the company’s new Vice President and Chief Technology Officer and Paul Ybarra its Senior Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer. The additions are part of Fusion’s growth strategy, as it keeps pace with increasing demand among enterprises to remain resilient in the face of disruptive events.
Cowgill, who spent more than two years as Fusion’s Director of Product Engineering, will now work with his team to meet a variety of organizational objectives, including research and development, customer engagement, operations and security, and go-to market initiatives.
“Since joining the Fusion team, I have seen the company grow from being a software company to a solution company,” Cowgill said. “We offer a continuity risk management system that is the go-to platform for organizations around the world that seek continuity and resilience, and we grow with our customers to find the best-fit solution for their success. I look forward to being able to continue to shape that success at another level.”
Ybarra comes to Fusion from Tangoe Software, a global provider of IT and Telecom Expense Management software and services, where he worked as Senior Vice President of Global Mobility Sales. In his new role, he will be responsible for all sales, marketing, and customer care functions.
“I came to Fusion because I saw an opportunity to be a part of something special,” Ybarra said. “The company has positioned itself to accelerate its success and the success of its customers during the next year and beyond with offerings that are truly unique in the business continuity and risk management space, and I am eager to play a role in meeting our ambitious goals.”
One year ago – on June 13, 2017 – Fusion announced an investment of $41 million in funding led by Catalyst Investors, a New York-based growth equity firm. This equipped the company with resources to further expand its employees and offices in both Chicago and London. Since then, Fusion has continued to make strategic hires to boost progress.
“Change is necessary for Fusion to reach its goals,” said Fusion CEO and Founder David Nolan. “We are investing and growing substantially, and we plan to accelerate our activity even further in the coming months. We expect Fusion to grow our workforce by more than 40 percent by year end alone, and Fusion will again be expanding its footprint proportionally. With leadership from Cory and Paul, we anticipate continued expansion and great things to come."
