LockDown Appoints Emma Furlong as VP of Marketing to Position Company for High-Velocity Growth

Columbus, Ohio, June 8, 2020 – LockDown, a disruptive company that is pioneering a new standard for data control and digital ownership, is pleased to announce the appointment of Emma Furlong as VP of Marketing. In this role, Emma will be responsible for leading, developing and executing LockDown’s overall marketing strategy, collaborating closely with sales to drive strategic expansion and revenue for the business.

“When our team began discussions with Emma about LockDown, we could immediately tell her approach and skillset was a perfect fit for what we needed in our marketing leader,” said A.J. Auld, CEO of LockDown. “Emma was the 15th team member at her previous company and under her marketing leadership, that fast-growing SaaS company secured $52 million in funding in 2019, grew to 140 employees and expanded their client list to include customers like Ford, Barclays and USAA. In building the team to take LockDown to the next level, we knew we needed a professional marketer who had ‘been there, done that,’ which is what we found in Emma.”

“As a SaaS marketing leader, I’ve driven demand among Fortune 500 enterprises across a range of industries. In doing so, I’ve learned the importance of product-market fit,” said Emma. “I was thrilled to see that, in addition to a fantastic team, LockDown’s product uses proprietary technology to solve an essential and timely need for all businesses; protecting valuable communications and documents without the overhead of traditional security solutions. LockDown provides an intuitive platform for quick communication with control and privacy business executives can trust. In contrast, legacy providers for secure communication are complex, expensive and difficult to manage.”

Emma has built marketing departments from-the-ground-up, creating and executing corporate GTM strategies, driving brand awareness, mentoring marketers and SDRs and generating millions in pipeline from Fortune 500 enterprises.

Emma is well known in the technology community, particularly in financial services, where she has delivered main stage presentations to thousands of C-Level executives at conferences like Finvoate, Inside ETFs and Money2020 Europe.

Prior to joining LockDown, Emma’s other positions have included Director of Marketing at Clinc and marketing roles at the leading VOC Solutions firm, ForeSee, and global influencer marketing platform, Fohr. Emma is also a member of the Forbes Executive Communications Council and has a Bachelor’s degree in English and Philosophy from The University of Michigan.
