DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CyberGRX, provider of the world’s first and largest global cyber risk exchange, today announced the addition of new board member, Bob Carrigan, and three key individuals to their executive team. Adam Cecil will join CyberGRX as Chief Financial Officer; Jessica Reiter as Chief Marketing Officer; and Frank Price as Vice President of Product. These appointments follow another year of extraordinary growth for CyberGRX and will contribute to the company’s continued expansion into new markets, bringing more organizations an effective way to manage and mitigate third-party cyber risk.
CyberGRX is excited to welcome Bob Carrigan, the former Chairman and CEO of Dun & Bradstreet, to their board of directors.

During his tenure as CEO, Carrigan restored Dun & Bradstreet to consistent profitable growth after a five-year period of no growth.
“Taking a more proactive approach to managing third-party cyber risk requires more industry collaboration, meaning organizations and their third parties must work together to mitigate risk. While we have experienced a tremendous amount of growth on our Exchange within the last year, there is still more work to be done,” said Fred Kneip, CEO of CyberGRX. “I am very excited to welcome this esteemed group of industry professionals to the CyberGRX team and our new board member, so we can continue our work uniting organizations and their third parties in the fight against cyber-attacks.”
Newly appointed CFO, Adam Cecil, is a seasoned finance leader with experience in several successful startups. He will be responsible for the planning, implementing, managing, and controlling of all financial-related activities for CyberGRX. This will include direct responsibility for strategic planning, finance, accounting, and investor relations. He has a history of helping teams scale in high growth, dynamic environments, including successful exits to both strategic acquisitions and an IPO. Prior to joining CyberGRX, Cecil was the CFO at ProtectWise, Inc, through the acquisition by Verizon. He was the COO and CFO of AlchemyAI, acquired by IBM Watson, and CFO of CommercialTribe. Before that, he was VP of Finance at Rally Software where he helped build the company from early stage through IPO (NYSE: RALY).
As CMO, Jessica Reiter is responsible for CyberGRX’s overall marketing strategy and brand development, positioning, and execution. Reiter is an experienced marketing executive and business leader with a proven track record of building high-performance marketing teams and accelerating revenue growth for startups, mid-size companies, and large enterprises.
