MUNICH & BOSTON--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Brainloop, the leading provider of solutions for enterprise-wide collaboration on confidential information and documents, today marked its U.S. launch with the appointment of two new security veterans to its U.S. leadership team. Strengthening its position in the key region, Brainloop appointed former Northrop Grumman Chief Technology Officer and security veteran, Dr. Robert (Bob) Brammer as Chief Strategy Officer, and former New Hampshire Speaker of the House, William (Bill) O’Brien to the post of Chief Operating Officer.
“Brainloop has a sustained history of providing highly innovative and regarded security software solutions, and I am confident that the latest additions to our leadership team only stand to strengthen the company’s position moving forward in the U.S. market.”
Continuing to build on its strong German roots, Brainloop opened a new office in Cambridge, Massachusetts, to better serve its customers and meet the high demand in the U.S. To complement its launch and position itself for success in the highly competitive market, Brainloop has made two key additions to its U.S. senior leadership team.
Bob Brammer is the President and CEO of Brammer Technology, LLC, a consultancy focusing on advanced information technology, environment and climate, and security. Bob also served as Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer of Northrop Grumman Information Technology Inc. from 2004 until 2011. He is widely noted as one of the most influential thought leaders in the technology and security industries. As Chief Strategy Officer, Bob will leverage his depth of knowledge to provide guidance on and prioritization of U.S. market segmentation and strategy development. He will help the company effectively address the industry’s greatest challenges related to compliance, security, and collaboration. Bob will continue to lead Brammer Technology, LLC, while serving as Chief Strategy Officer for Brainloop.
“I am confident that Brainloop’s long-standing track record of success in Europe will transfer to the U.S. market and position the company to emerge as a major player in the security space,” said Brammer. “My professional experience aligns very closely with what Brainloop is already doing, and will accomplish moving forward, and I could not be more excited to contribute to the company’s U.S. launch and future success.”
Former Speaker of the House in New Hampshire, Bill O’Brien, joins Brainloop as its Chief Operating Officer. With an extensive background in law, he has provided Brainloop with legal consultation relating to contract, regulatory, and compliance issues for the last six years. In his role as Chief Operating Officer, he will draw upon his diverse business and legal background together with his intimate existing knowledge of Brainloop to oversee all day-to-day company activities and provide tactical guidance to support its continuing growth and success in the U.S.
“Having already worked with Brainloop, I know that the company is founded upon excellence and innovation, and I could not be more excited to expand my role and continue to build upon the company’s already stellar track record here in the U.S.,” said O’Brien. “Security and compliance continue to challenge even the largest international organizations and I firmly believe that Brainloop’s approach to these challenges will affect real improvement and change in the industry.”
