Wynyard Group has appointed Chris Stauber in the newly created executive role of Senior Vice President Product, following an extensive international search.
Reporting directly to the CEO, Stauber joins the Wynyard executive team with responsibility for leading the company’s product vision and strategy across research, engineering, product management and product marketing.
Stauber will be based in the San Francisco Bay Area where Wynyard plans to hub its product management and product marketing functions from early 2016.
Across the Pacific, Wynyard has positioned itself as a market leader in an US$8 billion crime fighting and security software market which is growing at 11 percent annually with Stauber set to play a “key role” in ensuring the company extends its product leadership position.
Prior to joining Wynyard, Stauber led the products organisation for BMC Software’s Cloud and Data Centre Automation business unit and prior to BMC, he held roles at GT Nexus, Siebel Systems and Oracle.
“For years I've used advanced technology to build products that solve complex problems and help customers gain a competitive advantage,” Stauber says.
“I’m excited to join Wynyard Group to apply similar tools and techniques to ensure governments and corporates have the advantage in fighting serious crime.”
Wynyard continues to aggressively expand its global operations and has invested in new releases of Wynyard Advanced Crime Analytics (ACA) and Investigations Case Management (ICM) in 2015.
Going forward, the company will also launch Wynyard Advanced Cyber Threat Analytics (ACTA) in 2H15 - an advanced product which leverages the company’s big data analytics platform.
“This is an exciting time for Wynyard and we are delighted to welcome Chris who will now champion and drive the strategic product vision to help meet our market leadership objectives,” adds Craig Richardson, CEO, Wynyard Group.
“Chris’ command of both business and technology is a significant advantage that has served him well.
“Under his leadership Chris and his teams have been consistently recognised for world-class technology and business innovation while being dedicated and focused on customer service excellence.”
