Mike Hedger

A proven leader with a deep understanding of the industry, Mike has decades of experience building market-leading companies. Before joining the Red Sift board, he was the Chairman of internet security company AVG and the web-based unified email management company Mimecast. Mike witnessed both of these companies transition to public listings on the NASDAQ. 

Previously, he was CEO of email archiving company Kvault Software Limited (KVS), which was sold in 2004 for $225 million to Veritas (now Symantec Enterprise Vault). Before that, he was Executive Vice President of worldwide operations at Forte Software, where he expanded the business globally until its acquisition by Sun Microsystems in 1999. He was also the Vice President of Marketing Operations EMEA for Oracle and the Managing Director, U.K. and Northern Europe, for INGRES/ASK, among other roles at WANG and IBM.

Red Sift is in an incredibly hot space with potential to grow rapidly, and I want to make sure we take advantage of the opportunity in front of us. Security concerns aren’t going away. Red Sift’s products are easy to implement, and they address real problems. We need to recruit the right people and set up the right processes to have a successful global expansion. There’s a lot of work to be done, and I’m excited to help get it done right.
