DETROIT, June 13, 2023 --Judy (formerly AaDya Security), a software company making cybersecurity accessible and affordable for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), today announced the appointment of Tim Hankins as Senior Vice President of Growth. Tim will be responsible for driving revenue growth, managing sales, customer success and marketing. He is also tasked with driving growth around Judy, the company’s all-in-one cybersecurity platform that leverages artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to deliver next-generation, 24/7 protection and support for companies who lack the time, expertise and capital to successfully implement these solutions on their own.
Tim’s appointment follows Judy’s recent momentum, including the close of its $5 million Series A funding round led by Left Lane Capital, in April of this year. Aside from filling this key leadership position, the influx of capital will be used to accelerate the growth of AaDya’s channel program for managed service providers, resellers and referral partners serving small and medium-sized business customers.
Hankins joins Judy with nearly 20 years of experience driving growth and success for both established businesses and start-up verticals. He is passionate about developing and cultivating high-performing teams. Prior to joining Judy, Tim served as Senior Vice President of Sales at DecisionLink.
“Tim has built a reputation as the go-to leader within the cybersecurity industry for exceeding metrics, solving complex problems and closing new business deals,” said Raffaele Mautone, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Judy. “His background and experience are a perfect fit as we continue to grow and scale our business.”
In today's digital landscape, the frequency of cyber threats is increasing and SMBs are becoming prime targets. It is crucial for SMBs to have access to affordable and effective cybersecurity solutions. With Judy, SMBs can now gain resiliency and cyber protection that was previously out of reach, reducing the financial, operational and reputational risks associated with cyberattacks.
"Traditional cybersecurity tools are often built for large enterprises, leaving small and medium-sized businesses struggling to implement robust protection due to financial constraints,” said Tim Hankins. “However, Judy’s development is a game changer for SMBs and I’m thrilled by the opportunity to join the company on its mission to protect the businesses that need it most.”
