Industry veteran will be tasked with accelerating the company’s global market growth
SANTA CLARA, Calif., October 24, 2023 – ColorTokens Inc., a leading Unified Zero Trust Platform provider, today announced the appointment of Jagdish Mahapatra as the company’s Senior Vice President of Sales. In his new role, Mahapatra will lead ColorTokens sales team and provide strategic direction to business development, go-to-market, and alliance functions across the globe.
Mahapatra brings extensive knowledge to ColorTokens with more than 25 years of experience scaling businesses for companies such as Cisco, McAfee, and CrowdStrike. Most recently, he served as Vice President for CrowdStrike’s Asia region. While in this role, he was instrumental in creating strategic partnerships globally and successfully drove exponential growth of over 100X Annual Recurring Revenue in just five years. Mahapatra also built a culture of high performance and engagement with the Singapore office being recognized as a Top 5 workplace by Great Place to Work.
“I am honored and excited to join the team at ColorTokens,” said Mahapatra. “There are many vendors who market Zero Trust solutions, but none have dedicated themselves to ensuring that the solutions are pragmatic for large-scale deployments and complexities. This was one of the primary reasons I decided to join their mission of securing global enterprises and governments by realizing the true potential of zero trust security. I was also amazed at the talent within the organization – from product leaders to security SMEs. That, coupled with a welcoming culture, made my decision easy.”
Prior to CrowdStrike, Mahapatra served as McAfee’s Chief of Channels & Alliances for Asia Pacific. In this role, he was responsible for managing more than 500 partners within channels, strategic alliances, ecosystems, and Managed Services across the Asia Pacific and Japan region. He spent more than a decade with Cisco Systems India where he held multiple roles in Channels, Commercial and Enterprise leadership positions in the journey of extraordinary growth of 200X in the India market.
“Jagdish is an industry leader with an impressive background in scaling organizations and managing teams at some of the largest technology firms in the world,” said Rajesh Khazanchi, CEO and Co-Founder at ColorTokens. “We are honored to have him join our leadership team. We will immensely benefit from his deep domain knowledge, customer and channel relationships, and industry acumen.”
Mahapatra is a well-known public speaker who has delivered multiple cybersecurity TED Talks reaching audiences across the globe. As a leader, he takes great pride in fostering a culture of a highly engaged team and believes that prioritizing employee growth is essential to the success of any organization. Business World has recognized him as one of the Top 40 Executives in India Inc. under the age of 40.
