Robert Hilson, Experienced SaaS Marketer, Joins Apptega to Help Drive Cybersecurity Platform’s Rapid Growth

Hilson, the company’s new vice president of marketing, brings a background in high-growth, venture-backed software to a veteran leadership team

Apptega, the software company that automates GRC from end-to-end to make cybersecurity and compliance easy for all, today announced the addition of veteran revenue marketer Robert Hilson to its leadership team. 

Hilson, whose experiences over 10+ years with fast-growing startups revolve around high-velocity demand generation, brand development and communications, most recently led marketing at Logikcull, the leader in cloud-based legal discovery. 

He joins Apptega during a period of rapid scaling for the Atlanta-based company, as it strives to meet the exploding demand for solutions that de-risk increasingly high-stakes cyber threats in an affordable and timely manner. Last year, Apptega landed a $37 million investment from Mainsail Partners, a premier growth equity firm, on its way to a top 250 ranking on the prestigious Inc. 5000 list. 

“Robert brings to Apptega a diverse skillset and experience in building high-performing teams that drive revenue,” said Apptega CEO Armistead Whitney. “His ability to harness the voice of the customer in programs that deliver value-forward brand awareness, demand, and thought leadership aligns with our goal of making cybersecurity and compliance easy and affordable for all.”
