“As we pursue our mission of making great cybersecurity attainable for organizations of all shapes and sizes, I couldn’t be more excited to welcome Johanna Flower to Expel’s board of directors,” said co-founder and CEO, Dave Merkel. “Johanna has been a true visionary in every company that’s been lucky enough to work with her, and I’m excited to have her leadership and support as we scale our capabilities.”
About Johanna Flower
Johanna currently serves as an advisor to several cybersecurity startups and is on the board of directors of Freshworks and Theta Lake. From 2014 to 2020, she led all elements of global marketing at CrowdStrike, transforming the company’s branding from an agile startup to an industry leader in cloud-native endpoint protection, and played a key role in CrowdStrike’s initial public offering. Before CrowdStrike, Johanna was senior vice president and chief marketing officer at Websense, Inc.
“I’ve worked with countless cybersecurity teams and most face the same two challenges: a widening skills gap and increasing complexity when it comes to the tools required to keep themselves secure,” said Johanna Flower. “Expel brings a unique tech-first approach to simplifying and solving both of these issues so more organizations can experience the benefits of a modern managed security operations center. They also have a great and highly skilled team of people with deep security expertise — I’m excited to work alongside them to grow the business.”
