Brian is Senior Vice President of Cloud Security for Rapid7. Starting at a very young age, Brian developed a passion for almost anything involving computers. His expertise in a broad range of technologies and disciplines, from programming to security, led him to co-found DivvyCloud in 2013, where he served as CEO until Rapid7’s 2020 acquisition.
Prior to founding and leading DivvyCloud, Brian was the Director of Online Operations at Electronic Arts (EA) for the Mythic Studio. During his seven years at EA, he developed, managed, and operated the infrastructure that ran the world’s largest online games.
As a pioneer in the gaming industry, Brian is a passionate technologist who enjoys sharing his insights from the front lines (you could call him a geek and he’d agree). He led the first migration of a “triple A” online game to Amazon Web Services (AWS), and broke new ground by architecting the hybrid cloud environments that supported EA’s massive, distributed global computing needs.
His career has involved a number of research interests and the opportunity to develop practical applications. Areas of focus include cyber threats, information security, DevOps, hybrid cloud, and software-defined infrastructure, such as building serverless architectures with microservices and container deployments.

Chris served as DivvyCloud’s Chief Revenue Officer prior to Rapid7’s 2020 acquisition. Prior to his leadership position at DivvyCloud, Chris was founder and CEO of New Signature, a systems integrator and managed service provider. Under his leadership, New Signature helped hundreds of companies adopt and operate Microsoft Azure and Office 365, achieved 12 years of consecutive double-digit revenue growth, and won more than 120 awards, including being named twice as Microsoft's United States Partner of the Year—in 2014 and 2015. In 2015, he sold the company to BSI Partners, LLC, in a transaction funded by Columbia Capital. In addition to New Signature, he has helped lead and found multiple tech startups including HelloWallet (acquired by Morningstar) and AllHerb.com.
Chris holds an MBA from the MIT Sloan School of Management, a BS with a double major in Information Management and Technology and Anthropology from Syracuse University, and sixteen technical certifications. Previously, Chris served as a member of the Microsoft Office 365 Partner Advisory Council, Microsoft United States Partner Executive Board, and Microsoft Worldwide Systems Integrator Partner Executive Board.
