ASHBURN, Va., August 26, 2021 – Identity and Access Solutions, LLC (IAAS), a leading provider of highly qualified technology talent for the Identity and Access Management (IAM) community, today announced the hiring of Richard (Ric) A. Weeks, an IAM industry channels and alliances veteran, as Client Director, effective immediately.
Weeks is a seasoned IAM industry executive with over 20 years of identity-related channel sales, corporate development and strategic alliances experience. His past roles included sales leadership positions with Centrify, CyberArk, Lieberman Software, BeyondTrust and Saviynt, where he successfully forged and developed monetized go-to-market partnerships with firms across the identity spectrum, including those focused on Privileged Access Management (PAM), Identity-as-a-Service (IDaas), Identity Governance and Administration (IGA), and the emerging cloud infrastructure security markets. Ric’s experience also includes corporate development, where he was instrumental in the 2018 acquisition of Lieberman Software by Bomgar/BeyondTrust.
Weeks will be responsible for the expansion of business with Independent Software Vendor (ISV), Global System Integrator (GSI), and Value-Add Reseller (VAR) relationships focusing on the Americas and Europe.
“We are very pleased to have Ric join the team at IAAS to help expand our reach and visibility within the ISV, GSI, and VAR communities,” said IAAS Vice President of Sales George Miller. “Ric’s career experience and expertise in all phases of identity, coupled with his tenacity and extensive list of industry relationships, will have an immediate impact on our current fiscal year’s revenue and future success.”
“It’s my honor to join IAAS to help achieve our mission of enabling ‘Zero Cost Bench’ staffing with our hard-to-find resources who are highly qualified and have the necessary experience and certifications to provide outstanding IAM presales and project delivery,” said Weeks. “With a large gap between available technical subject matter experts (SME) and the exponential growth in IAM project needs and demands in the marketplace, I am excited to help enable our clients fill this void so they can be fully staffed to win, scope and deliver their projects on time and within budget.”
