Introduction from BeyondTrust’s New CEO: Janine Seebeck | BeyondTrust

Today is an exciting day for me personally and for BeyondTrust, as I officially assume the role of CEO. After six years in leadership roles at BeyondTrust, including Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer, I’m honored to move into the next phase of my career at BeyondTrust and build on the incredible success we’ve experienced as a company.

First, I want to thank Matt Dircks, our former CEO, for the phenomenal job he’s done leading this company for the past eight years. He has been an extraordinary partner, mentor, and friend to me, and we’ve worked closely during the past year to ensure a smooth transition. I wish Matt the best as he moves into a new stage of his career, which includes advising BeyondTrust as our new Executive Board Chair.

As the leader in Intelligent Identity and Access Security, we have an unparalleled capability to make an impact on our customers’ security and productivity. At BeyondTrust, what we do matters. I believe strongly in the potential of our global team to help our customers solve relevant and complex problems, and further our mission to protect identities, stop threats, and deliver dynamic access to empower and secure a work-from-anywhere world.

While BeyondTrust has achieved great success, we are hungry to do more. At our recent Go Beyond customer and partner conference, we shared our ongoing commitment to the strategic goals that are foundational to BeyondTrust:

  • Focus on Customer Success
  • Market Leadership & Innovation
  • Rapid Growth & Scale
  • Commitment to People & Culture

All of this would not be possible without the incredibly talented employees we have at every level of the organization. Our people – a diverse, global workforce of more than 1,350 employees – is the most critical component of our success. I am both thrilled and humbled to be leading this incredible team towards even greater future achievements.
