ThreatQuotient SVP Worldwide Sales Gigi Schumm Wins 2019 CDM InfoSec Award for Women in Cybersecurity

March 11, 2019

RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 11, 2019--ThreatQuotient ™, a leading security operations platform innovator, today announced that Gigi Schumm, SVP of Worldwide Sales, was named the winner of a 2019 Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM) InfoSec Award as the Publisher’s Choice for Women in Cybersecurity. Schumm joined ThreatQuotient in August 2017, and is responsible for the company’s revenue growth and driving global channel strategy. She has been instrumental in building a world class sales program with teams in the U.S. and abroad, as well as expanding ThreatQuotient’s customer footprint across the globe.

“I am honored to be recognized by Cyber Defense Magazine, and especially to be named among other female leaders who I view as key contributors to advancing the state of women in technology,” says Schumm. “As we celebrate Women’s History Month throughout March, I am grateful to work for a company like ThreatQuotient that consistently values and promotes the achievements and strengths of all team members, all year long. We are forging our place as a market leader, both through technology and innovation, and as a diverse workplace that advocates for the human element of security.”

Schumm has over three decades of experience leading high-performing organizations, spanning commercial sales, services, channels, alliances, business development and operations. She is also passionate about championing diversity in IT, especially cybersecurity. Since 2014, Schumm has served as the host of Women of Washington, a weekly Federal News Radio series and podcast featuring interviews of the most accomplished women in Washington and role models for the next generation of leaders to share life lessons and secrets to success. Schumm also regularly contributes to the community, having served on the American Red Cross Board of Directors for the Washington Capital region from 2012-2016, where she chaired the 2013 Salute to Service Gala that raised $500,000 for U.S. Troops.

“We are proud to have Gigi leading ThreatQuotient’s worldwide sales efforts, and thank CDM for their recognition,” said John Czupak, President and CEO. “It was Gigi’s proven track record of leading change, optimizing sales organizations and exceeding revenue and margin goals that made her a great candidate to take ThreatQuotient’s sales to the next level, and she has certainly fulfilled this role for the company. Gigi has played a large part in our continued growth and momentum since 2017, and we look forward to all that she will contribute to both our company and the industry going forward.”
