An award-winning executive, board member, public speaker and media/analyst source with 26+ years of IT outsourcing, cloud, security and SaaS industry experience, Tina Gravel is sought after for her ability to take complex cyber security topics and make them accessible to those that are not cybersecurity experts.

As Senior Vice President, Channels and Alliances for Appgate(a security software and solutions company), Tina helps partners and clients to unlock the power of innovative cybersecurity strategies (Software Defined Perimeter, Zero Trust, etc.) for their benefit worldwide. A natural seller with a soft spot for those with great ideas and ambitious start-up technology organizations, Tina dedicates countless hours mentoring others on how to increase revenue, monetize intellectual property, build productive teams and secure funding.

Tina’s technology experience is rooted in business development, having held senior positions at NetGravity (owned by Google), SAS, Sybase (owned by SAP) and CSC.
