Prevalent names CEO, three new C-suite execs

Prevalent Inc., the third-party risk management platform based in Warren, has named a new CEO and expanded its C-suite by three new executives, it announced Tuesday.

Kevin Hickey will now serve as the company’s CEO, succeeding founder Jonathan Dambrot, who is stepping down as CEO, but will remain on the board of directors.

Hickey, who has been a CEO with companies including eEye Digital Security, NetPro Computing and BeyondTrust, among others, will be aided by three newly created positions. They are: chief strategy officer, Brad Hibbert; chief revenue officer, Brendan Evers; and chief marketing officer, Mike Yaffe.

“The market validates that assessment due diligence, combined with continuous monitoring, is the right approach to understanding and managing risk,” Hickey said in a prepared statement. “Perfecting what works has allowed Prevalent to steadily grow and evolve, and now we’re looking toward the future.”

The four new officers all joined from BeyondTrust, where they worked together to grow the business into a market leader, Prevalent said.
