OwnBackup Ranked Number 79 Fastest-Growing Company in North America on Deloitte’s 2020 Technology Fast 500™

November 20, 2020

OwnBackup recently ranked 79 on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™, a listing of the fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences, and energy tech companies in North America. As highlighted by this distinguished award, OwnBackup's revenues grew 1,486% and its customer base increased by 520% percent over the last three years.

To take this impressive momentum to the next level, OwnBackup recently expanded its world-class executive leadership team, appointing Jeannie Mun as chief financial officer, Leo Minervini as chief information officer, Travis Howe as chief information security officer, and Laura Cooper as chief people officer. In addition, new leaders in Asia Pacific and Europe joined to support growing customer demand for SaaS data protection in these markets. They will build on OwnBackup's solid base of 2,600 customers worldwide—more than 29 percent of which are based outside the United States.  

“The current pandemic is shining a bright light on several key trends that have been fueling business resilience ever since we first imagined OwnBackup. In this ever-changing business environment, digital transformation, cloud complexity, and artificial intelligence are all accelerating faster than anyone expected,” said Sam Gutmann, CEO of OwnBackup. “We’re putting the right people and practices in place to scale our business as we help forward-looking leaders in our growing customer ecosystem rapidly adapt and prepare for whatever paradigm shift comes next.”

New C-level Executives Poised to Supercharge Growth

Joining OwnBackup as CFO, Mun’s (pictured left) financial leadership experience spans high growth technology organizations such as MediaMath, which achieved a six-year compound annual growth rate of over 100% during her tenure, and OysterBooks, which was acquired by Google.

Earlier in her career, she was an investment banker with Jordan Edmiston Group and a management consultant with Deloitte Consulting. “I’m thrilled to join such a great company and help lay a solid foundation for long-term viability and continued scale,” said Jeannie Mun, CFO at OwnBackup. “We have a clear and compelling opportunity to leverage Own’s impressive technology and IP to further expand our customer base and product offerings into numerous new markets.”

Leo Minervini (pictured left) joined OwnBackup to head the company’s global IT organization, bringing strategic technology experience from Trifecta Technologies, Carlo’s Bakery, Oracle, and Trend Micro.

As CISO, Travis Howe leads OwnBackup security, privacy, and compliance initiatives. He is a visionary executive with experience as a United States Navy cryptologist, the security lead for the western third of the U.S. power grid, and a U.S. space command classified network architect.

Laura Cooper manages the company’s global human resources, talent, recruiting, and facilities operations, adding valuable HR operations expertise from her leadership roles at Bluecore, Franklin Templeton Investments, Samsung Electronics America, and NICE Systems.
