Security vendor Imperva has appointed former Akamai executive Micheal McCollough as Global Vice President of Strategic Growth.

Imperva says McCollough will be responsible for scaling the company’s channel business, further developing and growing its partner ecosystem and creating new partnerships.

McCollough was previously at Akamai, where he was Global Vice President, Channels & Alliances, leading Indirect Sales and the Partner Program and built the enablement framework and marketing strategy for Akamai’s partner ecosystem.

McCollough joins Imperva with more than two decades of experience working in four continents covering various markets.

As the Managing Director of Dell Managed Services for APJ based in Singapore, McCollough was responsible for growth and service delivery for the region.

And prior to relocating to Asia, he was the Managing Director for Dell Managed Services EMEA based in Paris, with responsibility for the growth, profitability and customer satisfaction of Dell’s Strategic Outsourcing customers.

McCollough also held senior leadership roles with Schlumberger as West Africa Regional Director and Managing Director based in Douala, Cameroon.

“Micheal is an exceptional leader who will accelerate our transformation to a channel-first company while delivering innovative solutions to our Partners to help address the challenges around securing the edge, applications and data,” says Paul Loftus, Chief Revenue Officer, Imperva.

“His knowledge and global experience building programs that scale along with his service provider experience will enable all routes to market.”

“Partners are the lifeblood of any channel-first strategy, and I’ve been impressed with the commitment Imperva is making to be easy to work with, predictable and transparent,” says McCollough.

“I look forward to working closely with the partner community globally and helping them grow their business with the robust security solutions that Imperva delivers.”
