OwnBackup announces new additions to executive leadership team

OwnBackup, the leading Software-as-a-Service data protection platform, announced that Courtnee LeClaire has joined the company as chief marketing officer and Alyssa Lahar has joined as chief people officer, according to a Tuesday announcement.

LeClaire comes to the Englewood Cliffs-based firm with over 25 years of marketing experience for some of the world’s foremost brands, including Disney, the Oakland/Las Vegas Raiders, Intel and Apple. Most recently, she served as CMO for Livongo, a rapidly growing digital health company that she helped lead through a successful digital health tech initial public offering, followed by the largest digital health acquisition in history by Teladoc Health.

As chief marketing officer, LeClaire will be leveraging her capacity for storytelling and brand building to help OwnBackup differentiate itself in a rapidly growing SaaS industry.

Meanwhile, Lahar joins OwnBackup from ZoomInfo, where she spent the past three years scaling the company from 950 employees to over 3,000 and leading the organization through a successful IPO. Lahar spent the first 19 years of her career at Dell EMC in a variety of roles within its human resources organization.

As OwnBackup plans to once again double the size of its team this year, Lahar will be focused on the development and advancement of its human resources strategy, which will include efforts to attract, retain and develop the industry’s best talent.
