AppOmni — a provider of a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) security and management platform — announced it added 3 new executives to the company’s leadership team. AppOmni hired Kathleen McKinnon as Director and Head of Customer Success, Brandon Conley as Chief Revenue Officer, and John Yun as Vice President of Marketing.

Fresh from a $10 million Series A round, AppOmni will have the new key hires play an important role in accelerating AppOmni’s sales and marketing operations in addition to product development.

As the Director and Head of Customer Success, McKinnon will be responsible for expanding and enhancing customer experience for AppOmni’s rapidly growing installed base. And with more than a decade in customer-focused roles, McKinnon brings cross-functional expertise to AppOmni by serving as the bridge between customers, engineering and product teams. Before joining AppOmni, McKinnon was a member of the Innovation & Learning team and Security team at Salesforce. While there, she spearheaded high-profile engagements for over 8,000 customers in cities around the world.

Conley will handle AppOmni’s business operations by developing unique and effective sales strategies and fostering key relationships. Conley was most recently the VP WW Public Cloud Security Sales at Palo Alto Networks (joining the company through the acquisition of RedLock in October 2018). Throughout his career, he has focused on helping customers solve the challenge of securing diverse and changing IT landscapes while serving in leadership positions at companies like Netskope, Citrix, Sonicwall, Aventail and Oblix.

And as Vice President of Marketing, Yun will lead AppOmni’s marketing strategy and execution. Plus he brings over 25 years of experience spanning multiple industries including cybersecurity, networking, Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence and cloud services. Before AppOmni, Yun built the entire marketing organization and operations at Zingbox, growing the business to multi-million dollar annual recurring revenue and acquisition by Palo Alto Networks. His past experience includes leading marketing efforts for the Palerra/Oracle Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) solution, Websense Data Loss Prevention (DLP), and Juniper Networks/Netscreen firewall and intrusion prevention solution.

“AppOmni’s team of customer-centric, data-driven experts is brought together by the shared passion to create tools for the greater good. We are determined for AppOmni’s platform to positively impact our way of life by making SaaS applications safer for everyone,” said Brendan O’Connor, CEO and Co-Founder at AppOmni. “We are thrilled to announce the addition of Kathleen, Brandon and John to our executive team, all of whom have already brought immediate value to AppOmni in their respective roles. I look forward to our team’s continued growth on all fronts.”
