AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CrowdStrike Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: CRWD), a leader in cloud-delivered protection of endpoints, cloud workloads, identity and data, today announced the appointment of Johanna Flower to the company’s board of directors.
A renowned cybersecurity, go-to-market and modern governance expert, Ms. Flower currently sits on the boards of cloud leaders like Freshworks (Nasdaq: FRSH) and ForgeRock (NYSE: FORG), as well as several high-growth private SaaS companies. She also has direct experience working closely with CrowdStrike’s leadership team and board, having served as the company’s first chief marketing officer and having played a key role in taking the company public in 2019.
“Johanna’s reputation as a critical advisor and world-class executive speaks for itself. Her direct understanding of our team and passion for our business will certainly be advantageous, but it’s her experience helping guide other hyper-growth companies and their executive teams that will be invaluable to CrowdStrike and our board,” said George Kurtz, co-founder and CEO of CrowdStrike. “She’s already played a key role in CrowdStrike’s early success as a market disruptor turned market leader, and I believe her best contributions are yet to come.”
“CrowdStrike continues to be the company to beat in cybersecurity and one of the fastest growing SaaS companies ever – a market leader that innovates and operates with the speed and attitude of a disruptor,” said Flower. “I welcome the opportunity to work with familiar and new faces alike on CrowdStrike’s board and management team as the company continues to redefine modern security and scales into a truly generational business.”
