If one takes a good look at the scope of his long career in technology, it is clear why Charles Leaver is now the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of cybersecurity company Ziften, which is considered one of the most prestigious security companies in the industry. It’s no exaggeration to call his career a long one, given that he started his tech journey way back in 1982. In that time, Chuck Leaver has served as a sales and management specialist, an executive and even as an entrepreneur. He has worked in numerous areas of the tech space, although he seems to specialize in the media and mobile sectors.
Prior to being named Ziften's CEO, Charles Leaver served as the company's Chairman for a time and prior to that, he was a partner with Austin, Texas-based venture capital firm Trellis Partners. It is perhaps his experience that has made him so skilled and knowledgeable in virtually every aspect of cybersecurity specifically and technology generally.
