Onapsis Expands Executive Team with Leaders from Fossil Group, Carbon Black, Trustwave and Synopsys
BOSTON – September 11, 2019 – Onapsis, the leader in business application protection, today announced the appointment of four new members to the executive team. Annabel Lewis has been named chief legal officer; Jason Fruge, former vice president and chief information security officer (CISO) for Fossil Group, has been appointed vice president of business application cybersecurity; Jonathan Daly joins the team as vice president of marketing; and Lynn Shintani, formerly Nolitt, joins Onapsis as vice president of human resources.
As chief legal officer and corporate secretary, Lewis will lead Onapsis’s legal and compliance efforts with a focus on expanding its global operations to support the company’s continued growth. She brings deep expertise in growing and scaling cybersecurity and software companies. Lewis has 15 years of tech experience that includes multiple mergers, acquisitions, IPO initiatives and international expansion. Prior to Onapsis, Lewis served as general counsel and secretary for Singtel’s (now a part of Trustwave) cybersecurity organization, where she helped lead key growth initiatives, including integrating its various security units into one organization, with over 2,000 employees and 200,000 customers. Prior to this at Trustwave, Lewis helped transform the startup into one of the world's largest cybersecurity firms, through both organic growth and 15 acquisitions, culminating in its $850M-valued sale.
With over 20 years of information security and IT leadership experience, Fruge will lead the company’s Global Professional Services team, a critical part of its customer success efforts. Previously, as CISO at Fossil Group, Fruge was responsible for providing leadership and information security advice, governance and subject-matter expertise to the company’s executive leadership and global team of technical staff who manage critical distributed information systems. Prior to Fossil Group, Fruge held various executive positions in global information security at Signet Jewelers, Citi and Cerner Corporation.
Daly brings over 20 years of software and cybersecurity marketing experience to his role guiding the global marketing efforts at Onapsis. Previously at IntSights Cyber Intelligence, he helped position the company as a leader in the next-generation enterprise threat intelligence market, working arm-in-arm with sales to grow the pipeline by 400 percent in less than two years and driving the company to the number one position in Gartner’s Peer Insights “threat intelligence services” category. Prior to IntSights, Daly led product and solution marketing for Carbon Black. As an integral part of the team during the company’s journey to its initial public offering, Daly helped define and launch the market for endpoint detection and response and helped create the threat hunting category. Prior to this while at Endeca (acquired by Oracle), Daly built the organization’s strategic alliance and channel marketing strategy.
An established human resources and culture executive, Shintani will lead Onapsis’s global talent management and culture development operations. Shintani is a strategic hands-on HR executive and business partner with over 20 years’ experience providing vision in managing HR operations. Prior to joining Onapsis, Shintani worked at Cigital (acquired by Synopsys), a software security consulting firm for 11 years leading Global HR, where she was responsible for strategic planning and implementation of all HR functions.
