Prime Factors has named Justin Teitt as the company's COO & Chief Marketing Officer.
Justin Teitt is an entrepreneurial executive with broad management experience in companies ranging from Fortune 10 to start-ups, through incubation, growth, and exit. He joins Prime Factors from ALSENTIS, an innovator in touch technologies for human-machine interfaces, where he served as Chief Executive Officer.
"I am excited to join this exceptional team at such an interesting time - when both the complexity of protecting information and the cost for failing do so has never been higher," said Mr. Teitt, who first crossed paths with Prime Factors nearly 20 years ago while marketing competitive software products at Sterling Commerce (now IBM). "Prime Factors has a rich legacy of protecting the sensitive information of large multi-national companies, and I found the elegance of architecture and ease of implementation of their data protection products tremendously compelling. For decades, we have been a trusted provider of security software and world-class technical services, and we look forward to continuing this legacy as we grow the company."
"I have known Justin for many years," said Henry Cheli, President & CEO of Prime Factors, "and I am very pleased to have him join the Prime Factors team. He is a skilled marketer, and his experience in running and growing companies will help Prime Factors continue to establish its position as a leader in data protection. It is a very exciting time at Prime Factors!"
Justin previously served as Managing Partner of Third Culture, a marketing and product development company, which sold to a Private Equity firm in California. Justin has previously held leadership roles in Marketing & Global Channel Development with Sterling Commerce and National Retail Development with SBC Communications (now AT&T). While at SBC, Justin also held roles in corporate marketing, global sales, and field operations line management. Justin has served on the boards of several technology companies as well as non-profit organizations focused on community development.
