Award-Winning MSP Executive to Lead Sales and Marketing Team at Secure Now!

Russell Suzuki Named to Vice Presidential Post at Leading Cybersecurity Services Firm for the IT Channel

Russell Suzuki, an award-winning executive with an extensive background in IT management, has been named Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Secure Now!, a leader in providing cybersecurity solutions to small and medium-sized companies as well as healthcare organizations through the IT channel.

Suzuki’s experience as both a Managed Services Provider (MSP) and HIPAA Privacy Officer makes him particularly suited for his new role in expanding the Breach Secure Now! and HIPAA Secure Now! platforms that provide the core services and tools available from Secure Now! This includes employee security training and testing, security risk assessments, and dark web scanning to identify employee security vulnerabilities.

Suzuki founded and ran a successful regional Healthcare IT company offering MSP, HIPAA consulting and Electronic Health Records services, until selling it to a national competitor. Recognizing his passion for growing IT companies, Suzuki then established a sales and marketing consultancy focused on helping MSPs grow their top and bottom lines.

As fractional VP of Sales and Marketing, Suzuki’s achievements include packaging and launching Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP) and HIPAA solution offerings, accelerating the quote to cash process from 2 weeks to 2 days, and increasing company quarterly revenue by 22%.

“Russell is a rare find in the industry, bringing together channel success with HIPAA compliance expertise to Secure Now!, as the company is poised for major expansion,” said Art Gross, CEO of Secure Now! “He will be an invaluable asset as we move toward becoming a national leader in the channel for cybersecurity.”

“Having founded and sold one MSP organization, and helping grow several others, I know MSPs need vendor partners that can both provide high-quality solutions and, just as importantly, help them bring in more clients,” Suzuki said. “Secure Now! makes it easy for MSPs to offer expanded cybersecurity capabilities to new and existing clients at a low-cost entry point, and upsell new services from there.”

In addition to enhancing the role of MSPs as experts who can help their clients avoid costly data breaches, Suzuki will also help IT professionals increase their capacity to serve the vast market of healthcare professionals through the HIPAA Secure Now! platform.

Suzuki implemented HIPAA Secure Now!’s HIPAA Security Risk Assessment solutions at two of the MSP companies he helped manage, enabling them to comply with MACRA, MIPS, Meaningful Use and HIPAA regulations, all Federal compliance requirements in the healthcare field.

“Our clients had a difficult time complying with all of the necessary federal privacy and security regulations, until we used HIPAA Secure Now! to give them a convenient and powerful toolset to train their staff, document their policies and procedures, and assess and optimize their compliance,” Suzuki said. “I saw the positive impact these tools and expert consulting services had in giving our clients peace of mind and enabling them to comply with critical regulations.”

As the new head of Sales and Marketing at Secure Now!, Suzuki’s mandate will be to accelerate growth and broaden the channel for the company’s MSP partners and clients.

Throughout his career, Suzuki has earned numerous honors, including being named Entrepreneur of the Year by the Technology Business Alliance of Nevada in 2009. A US Armed Forces Veteran, Suzuki also received the U.S. Air Force Space Command Medical Information Systems Officer of the Year award along with other honors for his distinguished leadership.
