BIOGRAPHY

Richard Benigno is a senior executive sales leader with more than 20 years of experience building highly successful, enterprise security sales teams globally. His strength in recruiting, training and developing unified sales teams has been demonstrated over the years during his tenure at CA, Stonesoft, Intel Security, Tenable and most recently Insights Cyber Intelligence.

Throughout his sales career, Richard has also taken into consideration the importance of aligning the sales and marketing organizations with a strong global channel strategy. His ability to quickly build such teams has been a key component to his continued success over the years.

Richard attributes much of his corporate success to the lessons learned playing professional soccer in Europe. Many of his experiences living as a foreigner abroad, adapting to different cultures and learning multiple languages has helped him understand the dynamics required to build intelligent, competitive and productive sales organizations.

Richard resides in Dallas, Texas with his wife Jessica of 25 years. They have one son who recently graduated from Berklee School of Music and two daughters currently attending Fordham University and Savannah College of Art and Design on the East coast. In his limited free-time, Richard enjoys spending as much time as possible with his family, running with his two Jack-Russell dogs, playing tennis and the occasional pick-up soccer game at the local park on Saturdays.
