Lancope Appoints David Scruggs as Vice President of North American Sales
Lancope Inc., a provider of flow-based security, network and application performance monitoring, has announced its new vice president of North American sales, David Scruggs. Formerly director of North American sales for Lancope, Scruggs will now assume overall responsibility for commercial and government direct and channel sales management in the United States and Canada. He brings more than 14 years of sales experience to the position with leading technology companies, including more than five years with Lancope.
"David has been a tremendous asset to our company," said Mike Potts, president and CEO of Lancope. "He achieved consistent, significant sales growth as our major account manager in the southeast, focused exclusively on the Fortune 1000 and stepped up last year as director of sales for North America, leading his team to record revenue growth in 2010."
Prior to Lancope, Scruggs served as an account manager for Internet Security Systems (ISS) for three years. During his tenure, he successfully delivered a broad array of security products and services to the large enterprise market. Before ISS, he spent six years in sales roles with IBM and an IBM partner. Scruggs holds a BBA in management from Georgia State University. In his new role, he will oversee North American commercial and government sales, as well as pre-sales system engineering.
"For the past five plus years, I have been educating Lancope customers and prospects on the unique benefits of leveraging NetFlow for increased network visibility, performance and security," said Scruggs. "I am excited about the opportunity to further expand upon the success of a technology that I truly believe in. There is no other company like ours that can help customers leverage flow data to transform network and security operations, giving them the visibility to run their businesses more effectively."
