Code42 Hires Two New Execs
Code42 added two new executives to its leadership team.
 
The Minneapolis-based software company hired Rick Orloff, a former chief information security officer at eBay, as chief security officer. Karen Pisha, a former senior vice president of customer success at Adaptive Insights, is assuming a job with the same title at Code42. At one time, she worked at Eloqua, a company that Code42 CEO Joe Payne previously headed.
 
“Security and customers success are two guiding principles for Code42, which is why we’re excited to have Karen and Rick join our team,” Payne said in a statement. “They are both the best in the world at what they do.”
 
It’s been a year of ups and downs for Code42. The company pulled out of a development that would have moved their headquarters to Minneapolis’ Uptown neighborhood and saw the departure of two top executives, including CEO and co-founder Matthew Dornquast. The company hired Joe Payne to fill his slot shortly thereafter and clinched $85 million in equity funding, the largest technology investment in Minnesota this year.
 
The company says it has more than 37,000 business customers.
