LogRhythm expands leadership team with new CRO


Mitchell Rowe has been named as the new chief revenue officer (CRO) for LogRhythm.

Rowe joins the company from Ivanti, where he held the role of chief revenue officer for the past three years, and brings more than 20 years' experience leading enterprise software sales teams.

Rowe boasts an extensive resume across many high-profile companies. Prior to his time at Ivanti, Rowe was executive vice president worldwide sales at LANDESK, a Thoma Bravo company; senior vice president sales at Pitney Bowes Software Solutions; vice president and general manager of EAM Business Unit at Infor Global Solutions; and vice president of worldwide software sales at Applied Materials. 

At LogRhythm, he will be responsible for evolving and implementing the global sales teams strategy and go to market approach, with the goal to drive both sales and satisfaction among new and existing customers.

"I am thrilled to join LogRhythm and contribute to the vibrant community it has already built among its customers. As chief revenue officer, I am committed to seeking further growth opportunities all over the world and sustaining LogRhythm's solid momentum in the past few years," says Rowe. 

"Asia Pacific (APAC) is a region where I see a huge opportunity, having lived there for over eight years. There is still a long runway for growth as more businesses in Asia Pacific and across the world keep up to speed in neutralising todays most disruptive cyber threats," he explains.

Rowe joins a robust leadership team, which was expanded with several executive appointments in 2019, including Mark Logan, chief executive officer; Barry Capoot, chief financial officer; Cindy Zhou, chief marketing officer; Sue Buck, senior vice president of engineering; and Mike Jones, vice president of product.

Mark Logan, chief executive officer of LogRhythm, says Rowe's addition to the team comes at a time when security practitioners are facing particularly unique challenges, including the sudden requirement to support a spike in remote workers as a result of COVID-19.

"This is a challenging time for every individual and every industry. Our goal has always been to be a partner to our customers an extension of their team and we want to reinforce that we are here to support them now more than ever," Logan says. 

"I know that by bringing Mitch on board, he will only help us strengthen our existing partnership with our customers so we can best serve them during both turbulent and relatively settled times," he says.
