“Marc shares our belief that the world’s best companies are those that build great products along with great teams, which was one of many reasons that he was a clear choice for AlertMedia,” said Christopher Kenessey, CEO at AlertMedia. “I’m confident the leadership team and I will benefit from Marc’s extensive experience, and I look forward to working together during this next phase of growth.”
Ostryniec brings more than 20 years of enterprise technology sales leadership experience, spanning multiple industries, including retail, financial services, and software.
