Warren, New Jersey –– January 7, 2015 –– Prevalent, the third-party risk and vendor threat intelligence innovators, today announced Dave McNamara as Vice President of Software Sales.
In this newly created role, McNamara will lead and grow Prevalent’s sales efforts by building on its customer success, introducing best practices, and establishing new relationships with midmarket and enterprise organizations across the U.S.
“Demand for Prevalent’s technology and services is growing as more and more businesses realize the hard-hitting and costly reality of ignoring the threats and vulnerabilities introduced by third-party technologies and vendor relationships,” says Jonathan Dambrot, CEO and Co-Founder of Prevalent. “Dave’s extensive background and proven success in software sales, services, and business strategy is an asset to our team that will better position the company to capitalize on the market’s unmet need for a reliable, proven third-party risk platform and vendor threat intelligence service.”

“I am passionate about building strong and lasting customer partnerships, and I intend to focus my efforts on establishing a world-class, competitive sales organization and channel partner program that will rapidly ramp sales of the Prevalent’s third-party risk management offerings worldwide,” says McNamara. “I am also a big believer in value-based solutions, delivered through strong channel partners that result in customer value, retention and expansion over the long term. Prevalent’s technology and services address one of today’s most pressing security issues, third-party and vendor risk, which also represents one of the most compelling gaps in today’s enterprise security landscape. I am thrilled to join the team and play an integral role in the company’s growth and industry leadership.”
Earlier in his career, McNamara held sales leadership positions for several software start-ups including Neteos, Inc., Security-7 Software, Inc., Bisys Networking Services, Inc., and Network Defenders.
