Lacework appoints Mike Staiger as Chief Financial Officer
Lacework announced the appointment of Mike Staiger as Chief Financial Officer (CFO). Staiger brings more than 25 years of executive leadership in public and venture-backed private technology companies. His appointment comes on the heels of Lacework’s $525M growth funding round last week.
Lacework’s aggressive go-to-market strategy for its enterprise cloud security platform drove 300% year over year revenue growth in 2020. Staiger will play a key leadership role as the company continues to rapidly scale to secure the cloud for digital businesses in a fast growing market.
Prior to joining Lacework, Staiger was CFO of ThousandEyes, a SaaS-based Network Intelligence platform. He previously served in similar roles at Guavus, Tabula and Copper Mountain Networks as well as heading up business development at Tabula, Copper Mountain Networks, Shiva Corporation and other companies.
Staiger received a B.A. from the University of Michigan and an MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
“This is an exciting time to join Lacework, after a significant growth round and when we’re on the path to dominating the market for cloud security,” said Staiger. “I’m looking forward to joining the impressive leadership team at such an exciting time in Lacework’s growth.”
“Mike’s breadth of experience will be invaluable to us as we continue our rapid growth in business operations and revenue,” said Dan Hubbard, CEO of Lacework. “He brings deep experience working with venture-backed technology companies to our already strong leadership team.”
