[Minnetonka, Minn., Jan. 12, 2021] — Ostra, an industry leader in cybersecurity solutions, is excited to announce Paul Dobbins has joined the company as Chief Growth Officer. Dobbins will focus on strategic growth initiatives while expanding Ostra’s position as the best-in-class data protection provider for small and medium-sized businesses. He will oversee sales, marketing, partnership experience and go-to-market strategy.
“This is a very exciting time for us, and Paul is just the type of leader we need to take our company to the next level,” said Ostra President Joe Johnson. “Drawing on his years of leadership and experience growing early-stage companies, he will provide fresh and invaluable insight to our positioning strategy as we continue to innovate and accelerate our company’s rapid growth.”
Dobbins has spent the last 17 years building and leading successful sales, marketing and support teams for startups and billion-dollar corporations across multiple industries. Previously, Paul worked for startup and industry-disruptor ProtectCELL, where he held various leadership positions during its meteoric rise to an Inc. 500 fastest growing company and eventual sale to Fortegra, a billion-dollar specialty insurance company.
