He will be key to driving our expansion into new markets and to help protect those facing the greatest risk of cyber attacks.”
Steinbach’s career spans the U.S. Department of Defense, intelligence community, and the technology industry, always with a laser focus on solving privacy problems and advancing cybersecurity innovation. Mr. Steinbach served honorably in the United States Marine Corps and as a Technical Intelligence Officer with the Central Intelligence Agency. He also served as an Intelligence and Operations Specialist at Northrop Grumman. Most recently, Steinbach led the sales efforts at technology companies Endgame, where he grew the company’s revenue three-fold; managed strategy and marketing at ThinAir, a data security company focused on preventing data exfiltration; and headed consulting services at Grimm, where he advised companies on the best security practices.
“Cybercrime has become an epidemic and can do extensive damage to a person’s privacy, safety, and livelihood. With attack and threat vectors permeating our country, our businesses, and our people, there is a pressing need for companies such as Hueya to do the heavy lifting,” said Steinbach. “I am joining at a time where we can make headway in the fight against cybercrime and broaden Hueya’s current offering.”
