“Leslie is doing a phenomenal job maturing Veracode’s channel program and increasing our pipeline with channel partners and MSSPs by bringing more awareness to the fundamental challenges that application security poses to every business,” said Mike McGuinness, Executive Vice President and Chief Customer Officer at Veracode. “We’re anticipating accomplishing even more success with our channel partners this year.”
