Bolster, Inc, the automated digital risk protection company, was awarded the San Francisco Bay Area Top Workplaces award of 2022 today, in addition to announcing the hiring of Ryan McCurdy as VP of Marketing.

The Top Workplaces 2022 list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage LLC.

A force in driving growth and awareness, Ryan McCurdy’s expertise spans GTM strategy, building high-performing teams, and delivering qualified pipelines to fuel hypergrowth. Prior to Bolster, McCurdy was the VP of Global Demand Generation at Lacework where he helped build one of the fastest-growing security companies ever; achieving a valuation of over $8 billion. Before Lacework, McCurdy was the Director of Global Demand Generation at cloud unicorn Druva, where he built a global demand gen engine that helped the company achieve a $2 billion valuation. As Bolster’s new VP of Marketing, McCurdy’s unique knowledge and industry expertise will be essential to the startup’s growth and success, as they work to take down fraudsters on the Internet.

“I am thrilled to join Bolster, a company that is backed by a world-class team and product,” said Ryan McCurdy, VP of Marketing, Bolster, Inc. “We have an incredible window of opportunity here. Digital Risk Protection has never been more important or more essential to protecting a company’s brand, customers, and employees, and it’s never been more global. In Q1 of 2022, The Anti-Phishing Working Group (APWG) observed over 1 million total phishing attacks. This marks the first time that the quarterly total has exceeded one million. And when you look at the competition – The current vendors are doing a pretty poor job. So, I know our window is very strong, and when you see a window like that, and when you see technology developed that’s much stronger like the Bolster platform, that’s really solving this big problem — the decision to join was easy. We’re building, I believe, one of the most important security companies in the world.”
