With his knowledge of the industry and knack for helping software startups reach new heights, Dean’s appointment will be critical to Red Canary’s growth.”
Hager has over three decades of experience in the software industry and has held leadership positions at multiple high-growth software and technology companies. As CEO at Jamf, he manages the overall operations and resources and has led the company through massive growth, including its entry into the public market.
