Orchestrating an integrated branding campaign that leveraged SEO, analyst relations, press relations, and social media channels. This resulted in Radiant Security being featured in reports by renowned analysts such as Gartner, covering the emerging "AI-enhanced Security Operations space." Additionally, the campaign led to a string of prestigious awards, including Winner of the Fortune Cyber 60 2023, Top 10 Hottest Security Startups of 2023 by CRN, Best AI Security Solution at the Cybersecurity Excellence Awards 2023, Best SOC Automation Solution at the Cybersecurity Excellence Awards 2023, and Most Cutting Edge AI Security Co-pilot at the Top Infosec Innovator Awards 2023.

Building a diverse and geographically distributed marketing team at Radiant, primarily situated across the Americas. Under his leadership, the team achieved a remarkable 300% increase in Marketing Qualified Leads (MQLs) in 2024. This exponential growth in revenue propelled Radiant to secure a coveted position on the 2023 Fortune Cyber 60 list, recognizing the company as one of the fastest-growing cybersecurity startups of the year.
