ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - Dec 17, 2014) - Gerry Baron, a seasoned technology professional with over 25 years of global sales and marketing leadership experience, has joined Cirrity, a leading channel-only secure cloud solutions provider.

Baron has held senior executive positions at information security, communications and mission-critical software companies serving the retail, financial services, healthcare, travel, oil and gas, and defense industries including Rockwell Collins, S1 Corporation, Magnet Communications and S2 Systems. At Cirrity, Gerry is responsible for the company's "go-to-market" activities including partnerships, strategic sales, marketing, sales operations and business and corporate development.

"I am delighted to join a fast-growing, industry-leading company like Cirrity, and look forward to helping to accelerate that growth in conjunction with our outstanding team," said Baron.
