SailPoint Names Kevin Hansel Chief Information Officer


SailPoint, the undisputed leader in identity governance, today appointed Kevin Hansel to Chief Information Officer (CIO) of the fast-growing company. In that role, Hansel will oversee the company’s IT organization and have responsibility for driving IT strategy and innovation while scaling the company’s information system capabilities in support of SailPoint’s continued rapid business expansion.

Hansel joins SailPoint at a pivotal time in SailPoint’s growth trajectory as it completes 13 consecutive quarters of profitability and takes the leadership reigns in the fast-growing worldwide identity governance and administration market. Given the increasing importance of identity as a business enabler driven by IT for all organizations, Hansel will continue to make information security a top priority at SailPoint while driving new IT initiatives to help further enhance the company’s leadership position in data access governance and identity and access management.

“Kevin’s extensive track record of building innovative and highly scalable IT organizations will be critical as SailPoint continues to grow and expand into new markets worldwide. He will help drive IT as an increasingly competitive advantage for the company,” said Cam McMartin, SailPoint’s Chief Financial Officer. “As someone who also brings significant experience with identity governance from the IT operations perspective, Kevin is the right leader to join our world-class executive team.”

Hansel has over 20 years of IT leadership experience working with a wide spectrum of organizations, from startups to large growth stage companies. Most recently, Hansel was Executive Director of IT at AT&T Wi-Fi Services, formerly Wayport, a national provider of one of the largest branded Wi-Fi hotspot footprints in the world. In that role, he managed a large IT organization supporting thousands of systems spread across multiple data and network centers that process billions of global Wi-Fi connections per year.

Prior to AT&T, Hansel managed the IT organization at another Austin-based startup, Applied Science Fiction, which was acquired by Eastman Kodak. Before that, he held IT leadership positions at Power Computing Corporation, HP Inc. and Convex Computer Corporation. Hansel holds a B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from The University of Texas at Austin.

“Identity governance is the most important driver of a strong security posture for organizations worldwide,” said Hansel. “Having experienced first-hand how transformative an identity platform can be to a company’s overall security footprint, I am thrilled to join the innovator and leader in this sector. I look forward to increasing IT’s strategic value to both the company and its customers as SailPoint continues its remarkable growth trajectory.”
