McGregor becomes Osirium CEO
Leading UK-based vendor of Privileged Access Management (PAM) solutions, Osirium Technologies (www.osirium.com) promotes sales director Stuart McGregor to the position of CEO replacing David Guyatt, who becomes Executive Chairman.
Bringing to the role more than 25 years’ experience in the IT industry, including 12 years in PAM, McGregor has substantial commercial and technical expertise – including four years as a developer, and has been the driving force behind Osirium’s recent remarkable success, tripling its customer base in three years through winning new clients from an increasing range of sectors and geographies. The initial contract value for new customers increased 93% over the course of 2022 alone.
He has also spearheaded several internal transformations, bringing the development, product engineering, sales and marketing departments closer together, coordinating their activities, and streamlining all delivery processes to increase efficiencies and ensure all customers get a consistently best-in-class experience.
“As a channel-first organization, we have a track record of supporting and developing our partners, and we’ll continue to do so. This strategy will enable us to remain agile while delivering efficient business growth,” says Stuart McGregor, CEO, Osirium Technologies. “A key priority is to boost Osirium’s profile in the market. We have all the components in place – an innovative product suite, the right teams, and a healthy customer pipeline. There’s a lot of energy and enthusiasm here, and our solutions and people are supporting customers to rapidly deploy projects with success. The clarity of our messaging and solution set is another advantage; many of our competitors have multiple complex products, which creates confusion and uncertainty for prospects.”
“The demand for PAM is on the rise, and now we need to increase our traction in the market by communicating why we’re different. This involves emphasising our role as a trusted advisor; customers place great value on the way we engage, support, educate and nurture them throughout the sales process,” continues McGregor.
McGregor is also keen to demystify PAM. “The market’s ready for it. There’s been a trait in the industry to want to create an air of mystery, but the journey to PAM shouldn’t be one of magic, complexity, and jargon. As it enters the mainstream, and demand for solutions increases, Osirium will play a leading role in enabling organisations of all sizes to strengthen their security posture with PAM – not only huge enterprises with big budgets.”
Prior to joining Osirium in 2019, Stuart McGregor was sales director for PAM vendor Bomgar, and has also held sales and consulting management positions at EMC, UK start-up software company Thunderhead, BroadVision and Oracle.
