Cybersecurity Executives Practice

Since our founding 40 years ago, JM Search has established a significant track record of partnering with companies that require transformational leadership to help drive operational efficiency, revenue growth, and increased enterprise value,” according to John Marshall, JM Search’s co-founder and Chief Executive Officer. “By formalizing this practice as a Cybersecurity leadership center of excellence, we’re solidifying our long-standing commitment to helping clients remain at the forefront of security best practices and innovation amidst rapidly changing threat vectors, continued disruption, and required changes brought on by a global pandemic and the lasting consequences”.

Exemplifying the strength of our commitment is the depth and breadth of JM’s overall recruiting capabilities. With deep knowledge and complementary experience, Kevin Kernan and Tom Figueroa will anchor a team of senior JM Search leaders who are unmatched in their ability to assist companies with all aspects of cyber-focused talent sourcing, including executive leadership within cybersecurity companies and  security leadership functions (CEO, CSO & CISO) across all market segments.

A former Cybersecurity CEO, Kernan hired the entire leadership team for Secure Software, a venture backed application security business which was  acquired in 2007. Kernan transitioned into retained executive search in 2010 and has completed over 200 leadership projects globally and domestically, including Board Directors, CEOs, CSOs, and CISOs for investor backed and public cybersecurity firms. Tom joined JM Search in 2003 and has consistently received industry recognition, notably from Hunt Scanlon, as a top executive recruiter in cybersecurity.  An influential leader at JM Search, Tom has also built and leads the firm’s thriving FinTech Practice.

Recognized cybersecurity experts agree that companies across the industry spectrum are evolving their understanding  of cybersecurity practices, and all the dimensions of the security landscape.  These include physical and employee protection in today’s  increasingly complex world where there is a heightened focus is on doing more for less.  The pivot toward a fully digital world, new “work from home” requirements, and a growing need for endpoint security have combined to spur demand for more sophisticated technologies and experienced leadership.   Let’s get the conversation started.
