Fresh off of stints as an executive for Microsoft and Dropbox, Thomas Hansen is joining cyber security firm Carbon Black.
Hansen is Carbon Black’s new chief revenue officer and executive vice president, a role that involves accelerating the company’s go-to-market strategy and guiding its cloud efforts.
Before joining Carbon Black, Hansen spent two years as Dropbox’s global vice president of revenue where he helped lead the company through a period of major growth.
Prior to Dropbox, Hansen spent fourteen years at Microsoft. Toward the end of his tenure there, he served as the worldwide vice president of the SMB organization, leading global sales and marketing teams.
Hansen’s career had an unorthodox start. He managed a windsurfing company in Denmark before transitioning to leadership roles at big IT companies. In addition to Denmark (where Hansen was born and raised) he lived in South Africa, Thailand, and Turkey before landing in Seattle.
“As the market leader in endpoint security, Carbon Black is well-positioned to empower customers around the globe to prevent, detect and respond to the most advanced cyber attacks,” Hansen said in a statement. “I am honored to be working with the Carbon Black team as we continue to grow our global footprint and mentor our employees to advance in their careers.”
