Semperis, a Hoboken-based firm that provides identity-first security solutions, on Tuesday said it appointed Jeff Bray as chief financial officer and Russ Corallo as vice president of sales, Americas.

The additions to Semperis’ leadership team bring decades of firsthand experience scaling high-growth cybersecurity companies like Rapid7, CrowdStrike and others to Semperis during a period of rapid expansion for the company.

“Jeff and Russ bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to Semperis as we continue our growth trajectory,” Mickey Bresman, Semperis’ CEO, said. “Day after day, organizations find themselves caught in the crosshairs of threat actors targeting security weaknesses in identity systems, including Active Directory and Entra ID, which get even further abused during successful cyberattacks. Semperis’ deep understanding of identity security, identity infrastructure, operational resilience and how it impacts an organization’s bottom line are keys to our ongoing success.”

For the past 10 years, Bray has led finance teams at cybersecurity vendors in the public and private markets, including Rapid7, Imprivata and Invicti Security, helping them grow into scalable software businesses. Bray has been involved in multiple acquisitions and has managed more than $1 billion in capital markets transactions. Previously, he was an investor in public technology companies for more than 20 years. He serves on the boards of United Way Massachusetts Bay and Old North Illuminated.

Corallo joins Semperis with more than 20 years of leadership experience, building and managing high-performing sales teams for successful Software-as-a-Service cybersecurity companies. As the company’s Americas sales leader, Corallo will focus on increasing revenues and net new customers across the Americas. He recently served as vice president of sales at CrowdStrike, where he was a catalyst for strong revenue growth, and helped to position the company for its successful initial public offering. He previously held sales positions at McAfee and Altiris.
