Zero Trust platform company bolsters management team with former Duo Security senior executive to accelerate worldwide growth and US market expansion
Luminate Security, provider of the Zero Trust access platform, today announced the appointment of Jason Stutt as Senior Vice President of Global Sales.
A seasoned senior executive with a track record of success at leading global technology companies, Stutt is charged with scaling up the company’s international sales and revenue infrastructure in pursuit of its aggressive growth targets for 2019 and beyond.
Stutt, who previously served as Duo Security’s VP Americas Sales, brings to Luminate more than 20 years of sales leadership and strategy experience. He played a critical role in building up Duo as a unicorn in its marketplace by growing annual sales from just a few million dollars to more than $75 million ARR over a period of three years, structuring Duo’s sales operation for enterprise and Fortune 100 companies, and expanding its sales team from two to 65 employees, thus priming the company for last week’s acquisition announcement by Cisco Systems Inc. for $2.35 billion.
“Jason has an exceptional track record of not only building and leading sales teams, but of scaling high-performing sales organizations while delivering hyper-growth,” said Ofer Smadari, CEO, Luminate Security. “He brings to Luminate a deep understanding of the security and infrastructure industries, along with vast experience in managing enterprise level sales processes. Jason will have a key role in our growth and expansion in terms of sales pipeline and processes development and team-building. His ability to deliver results in a competitive, fast-moving industry makes him an invaluable asset and a great fit for Luminate as we get ready for accelerated growth.”
Stutt previously served as Regional VP of Sales at Cornerstone OnDemand, a global leader in cloud-based learning and Human Capital Management software, signing customers including LinkedIn, Sephora, Intel, and L3 Communications. He was also VP of Sales at Intelladon, a talent management and learning solutions integrator and served as product manager for Saba Software, a talent management software company.
“What I love about Luminate is that it is the right solution in the right space, at the right time,” said Stutt. “Luminate’s Zero Trust access solution solves a critical problem that is applicable to every modern organization, from large enterprises to small businesses. All the fundamentals that turned Duo into the unicorn of its industry are in place when it comes to Luminate, but Luminate’s technology is much harder to replicate. Luminate’s ease of deployment means that businesses can quickly implement security policies and controls to secure their operations without disruptions for their ongoing operations. I’m confident that over the next few months, we will further separate ourselves from the pack to be the security solution of choice among all businesses.”
