Richard Greene has joined the executive team at Dallas-based tech unicorn Island as senior vice president of strategic partnerships.
Island, a leader and pioneer in the enterprise browser market, said that Greene has decades of experience building and leading multimillion-dollar, fast-paced companies driving strategy, directing high-performance sales teams, scaling startups, and maximizing revenue.
“Island has been blessed with many unique opportunities to drive massive growth, therefore, scaling the organization in all directions is a primary focus. Richard’s superb talent, track record, and connections, will accelerate key growth opportunities,” Island CEO and co-founder Mike Fey said in a statement. “The combination of Richard’s technical, business and partnership acumen will be invaluable to us in expanding existing partnerships, and in seeking new and novel routes for market penetration and revenue growth.”
‘A transformational impact’
Before coming to Island, Greene was senior vice president, strategic programs at Interos, a supply chain and risk management platform, which followed his tenure as CEO of Blue Lava, an information security program management platform.
His career encompasses roles at a variety of security companies, including industry leaders such as Symantec and McAfee, as well as several security startups and mid-sized companies.
“My mission is to drive strategic go-to-market and product partnerships that extend our reach and get Island’s game-changing Enterprise Browser to the broadest set of customers possible,” Greene said in a statement. “The Island Enterprise Browser is having a transformational impact, removing friction for how companies work with partners, employees, suppliers, and their entire revenue chain.”
Greene added: “I believe Island to be one of the most significant innovations I have ever seen in my career, and I could not be more enthusiastic to be on board.”
Island said that Greene will build and nurture existing partnerships, as well as identify and establish additional partnerships that open new routes to market and add value to customers by enhancing the capabilities and benefits of Island’s Enterprise Browser.
On mission to reshape the future of work
In November, Island announced an extension of its Series B funding round with a $60 million investment led by Toronto-based Georgian.
The company said that the investment will further fuel its mission to reshape the future of work by redefining the role of the browser for the enterprise.
In March, when Island unveiled its $115 million Series B round led by Insight Partners, the company was valued at $1.3 billion.
Island is based in Dallas, with research and development in Tel Aviv, Israel.
