AppOmni has expanded its leadership team and added Neill Occhiogrosso as the company’s first chief operating officer. His extensive experience helping to scale SaaS companies will drive operational excellence as the company continues its rapid growth.
“It’s been an honor to partner with Brendan O’Connor and the AppOmni team as an investor and advisor since the earliest days of the company,” said Occhiogrosso.
“It was immediately apparent that SaaS security will be one of the fastest-growing areas of cybersecurity — and that AppOmni is the leader in the space. The company’s expansion over the past four years has been nothing short of exceptional. I’m thrilled to help scale AppOmni’s operations and position the company for the next phase of growth.”, Occhiogrosso continued.
Prior to joining AppOmni, Occhiogrosso held investment leadership roles at Johns Hopkins University, Costanoa Ventures, and Highland Capital Partners. His experience as a venture capital investor spans early- and growth-stage companies, investing in more than 30 companies including 2U, Gigamon, Acquia, Kenna Security, and Turbonomic.
Before his leadership roles in venture capital, Occhiogrosso worked at two enterprise software start-up companies as an engineer and product manager.
“AppOmni’s rapid growth trajectory requires us to mature and transform our company operations to deliver outstanding results. Neill is, without question, the right person for this crucial role,” said Brendan O’Connor, co-founder and CEO at AppOmni.
“His extensive experience shepherding SaaS companies from seed- and early-stage investments to maturity is simply unmatched. With Neill’s leadership, we’ll scale rapidly and efficiently to support our incredible momentum.”, O’Connor added.
