Imperva, Inc. (NYSE:IMPV) , pioneering the third pillar of enterprise security with a new layer of protection designed specifically for physical and virtual data centers, today announced the appointment of Michael D. Mooney to the new role of Chief Revenue Officer (CRO). Mooney will have oversight of Imperva’s worldwide sales, maintenance and renewal teams.

Mooney brings to this role over 25 years of experience leading and building high performance enterprise sales, systems engineering, business development, corporate development, and operations organizations to maximize revenue delivery, growth, and market penetration. He joins Imperva from HP Autonomy, where he was based out of the company’s San Francisco, California office. He started his tenure at Autonomy as Senior Vice President of Americas Field Operations, a role he held from 2006 through 2012, a year after the HP acquisition. Most recently, Mooney was responsible for Information Analytics and Big Data revenue, as well as for OEM and Federal revenue across all Autonomy divisions. Other responsibilities during his time with HP Autonomy included leading strategic sales initiatives focused on the company’s next-generation information platform (IDOL); driving worldwide Data Protection sales, Autonomy’s largest revenue-contributing product set; and leading the Americas revenue, sales and channel organizations.

Prior to his VP roles at Autonomy, Mooney was Senior Vice President of Americas Field Operations with Verity from 2000 to 2005. Before Verity, Mooney was Vice President of Sales for Adaptive Media; Vice President of Western Sales for Versant; and held sales and sales management roles for Alantec and CMC.

“Mike has an outstanding track record as an executive that has successfully scaled sales organizations and enterprises,” said Anthony Bettencourt, President and CEO of Imperva. “Having worked with him before, I know that his strong and varied background in direct enterprise, channel, and OEM based organizations, as well as his depth of experience with both perpetual and SaaS models, will be an asset as Imperva looks to the next stage of company growth.”

“This is an incredibly exciting time to join Imperva,” said Mooney. “With industry leading products for both application and data security, and a focus on the cloud and Big Data, we have a huge opportunity in front of us. As I’m meeting with and getting to know the team here, I’m impressed with their depth of knowledge and commitment to customer success, and look forward to working with the extended sales organization to achieve the company’s revenue potential.”
