The addition of Montz is the latest in a number of strategic moves by the company to increase record growth and enhance its business ventures and partnerships.
Denim Group, the leading secure software development firm, today announced the expansion of its corporate development leadership team, adding industry expert Andrew Montz as Director of Corporate Development. Tasked with accelerating the company’s continued growth, Montz will focus on strengthening strategic business ventures, enhancing existing and new partnerships, and developing a strong partner program for both professional services and the company’s flagship application vulnerability management product, ThreadFix.
“Today’s rapidly changing cybersecurity landscape makes the need for secure software more important than ever,” stated John Dickson, Principal at Denim Group. “And with more companies competing to address that need, it is crucial that we further enhance our leadership position as a trusted advisor to our customers on matters of software risk and security. Andrew played a pivotal role in growing three award winning companies, and we look forward to utilizing his knowledge and experience as we continue to grow as an industry leader in software security.”
Having most recently served as the COO of Catapult Systems, Montz was responsible for the company’s consulting services, managed services, and delivery center operations. While there, he launched and developed several of the company’s fastest growing and most profitable businesses. Prior to Catapult Systems, Montz held senior positions at USAA, IBM Global Services, Align Solutions, and BSG. He has a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from Texas A&M University and an Master of Business Administration in Finance from the University of Houston.
The addition of Montz is the latest in several key strategic moves by Denim Group to scale its operations and position the company for sustained record growth. The continued strengthening of the already veteran leadership team ensures the company remains at the forefront of delivering secure software development solutions. Most recently, the company announced the hiring of Mike Gillespie as Director of Sales, and released an enhanced version of its application security vulnerability management tool for developers and security professionals, ThreadFix. Key enhancements provide organizations with the ability to assess vulnerabilities and prioritize risks in real time, while supporting IAST, CLM and GRC technologies. Going beyond the boardroom, Denim Group is an avid supporter and active participant in Cybersecurity San Antonio, which founded the Cybersecurity Boot Camp, a program specifically designed to assist San Antonio-based veterans with navigating the challenges of entrepreneurship to start their own cybersecurity business.
