Open Systems’ May Mitchell

Mitchell replaces Aurelie Guerrieri as Open Systems’ CMO. Guerrieri left the company in June after three years in the role.

Open Systems tells us Mitchell has “incredible experience and passion for cybersecurity and digital transformation, with an established track record of successfully launching new solutions to market across various business segments, including global enterprise, midmarket and SMB.”

Here’s our list of channel people on the move in August.

“This, combined with her success in building partner ecosystems that drive new customer acquisitions, makes her an excellent fit for Open Systems and our growing partnership with Microsoft and their partner community,” the company said.

Before joining Open Systems, Mitchell was iboss‘ senior vice president of marketing. Before that, she was vice president of global channel sales/alliances and field/partner marketing at Cylance, which was acquired by BlackBerry.

Open Systems’ Mission Control SOCs and NOCs provide 24/7 global coverage for nearly 10,000 locations across 184 countries.
