Philip Madison, a woman-owned executive search firm, has been serving the Cybersecurity community since 2007.  Its principals are well-respected coaching and recruitment veterans dedicated to helping start-ups and fast-growing emerging technology disruptors within Cybersecurity, Biometrics, FinTech, IoT and Big Data. 

Karen’s background spans nearly all areas of Sales and Business Development.  Starting from inside sales, she climbed to field sales, sales management and sales enablement, earning over-achievement accolades along the way.

Working with companies such as Oracle, TIBCO, Akamai, NetSuite (acq by Oracle), and Palo Alto Networks, Karen has experience with large and small companies and became skilled at negotiating from the role of a sales professional as well as an Internet buyer.

Her strengths as a human connector resulted in Karen’s status as a top three contributor of Akamai’s global employee referral program as well as a large contributor to Oracle’s employee referral program.  This connection ability combined with her knowledge of technology sales organizations makes her uniquely qualified to represent CEOs, CROs and VPs of Sales in building top performing teams.

“We are thrilled to welcome Karen to the PM team.  I met Karen at the start of my recruiting career in the late 1990’s when I placed her with her first technology start-up, Breakaway Solutions.  

Working together at the beginning of our respective careers in technology, fostered a special bond and mutual respect between us throughout the years.  It always seemed a foregone conclusion that we would create an opportunity to work together again and here we are.

Philip Madison has long been known as a niche player in the Cybersecurity space.  With Karen’s passion for building meaningful relationships, 2019 is the year that we will broaden our reach to help more companies connect with the talent that continues to advance innovation within the Cybersecurity ecosystem.”
