One Identity Snags Ex-LogRhythm CEO Mark Logan as New LeaderLogan Takes Over as the Quest Subsidiary Prepares for Life as an Independent Entity
One Identity has tapped ex-LogRhythm CEO Mark Logan as its next leader and tasked him with standing up the Quest subsidiary as a stand-alone organization.
The Orange County, California-based company offers identity governance, privileged access, identity management and Active Directory management solutions thanks to its October acquisition of OneLogin, which added capabilities for single sign-on, multifactor authentication and customer identity and access management. Logan says One Identity has the broadest platform in the space.
Logan, One Identity's first-ever CEO, takes over for president and general manager Bhagwat Swaroop, who left the organization. One Identity has 1,000 employees, and Logan says he's open to additional acquisitions to make the company's identity platform even more robust.
"Listening to customers, listening to the market, driving toward market needs, always innovating and taking care of people, and recruiting and retaining best-in-class executives and teams are simple and fundamental principles," says Logan, who became CEO for the fourth time in the past 20 years. "They're not always easy to execute on, but I've found those principles to be key to drive successful companies."
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group, Logan also discusses:
- What piqued his interest in joining One Identity;
- The skills and experience he brings to the table;
- His plans and priorities as One Identity's first-ever CEO.
Logan is a proven leader with nearly two decades of C-suite experience at companies such as Emptoris (now part of IBM) and Attunity (now part of Qlik). He joined One Identity from LogRhythm, where he served as both CEO and board member. As president at Attunity, Logan played a critical role in boosting the company's stock value by more than 200% and its enterprise value by more than 330% when it was sold to private equity firm Thoma Bravo.
