Forcepoint has named Sean Berg senior vice president and general manager of global governments, a move the company says will expand ability to sell hardened cyber capabilities to government customers worldwide.
Berg will be tasked with overseeing Forcepoint’s strategy for growing its sales in government security markets, and will report to CEO Matthew Moynahan. Berg joined the company in May 2017 as vice president for global government sales and made a positive impact right away, Moynahan said.
“Under Sean’s leadership we’ve seen strong demand from government agencies worldwide,” Moynahan said. “I look forward to partnering with him to not only continue our proud tradition of serving the global government mission, but strengthening our capabilities to deliver human-centric security solutions along the way.”
Berg said he was looking forward to building on the work he put in as head of sales for Forcepoint’s global governments business.
“I’m very excited to have the opportunity to extend my role within the organization and help further Forcepoint’s market leadership position,” he said.
Berg has more than 25 years of experience in both the military and private sector. Before joining Forcepoint, Berg held leadership roles at Polycom, where he led sales and strategy for all U.S. federal agencies, and Dell, where we was executive director of the company’s defense and intelligence business. Berg spent six years as an infantry officer in the U.S. Marine Corps.
Berg will be based in the company’s Herndon, Virginia, office.
