Cyemptive Technologies Continues European Expansion; Names Former Hitachi Vice President and International Business Executive Jean-Luc Cervera as Business Development Senior Consultant

SEATTLE (October 19, 2023) – Cyemptive Technologies, an award-winning provider of pre-emptive cybersecurity solutions for business and government, today announced its expansion into the French, Belgium and Italian markets, including naming former Hitachi Vice President and international business executive Jean-Luc Cervera as business development senior consultant for the region.

An international expert in solutions sales with more than 35 years of experience, Cervera will be responsible for assisting Cyemptive as it enters these markets.  His initial focus will be on the insurance, healthcare and industrial sectors.

Cervera spent nine years at Hitachi Data Systems, where he served as Vice President, Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) Compute Platform and Converged Solutions Sales.  At Hitachi, Cervera was responsible for the EMEA sales overlay organization which focused on working with the company’s existing global sales and channel organizations to bring Hitachi servers and Converged Data Center Solutions to market.  He is also a founding partner of JLC Consulting, an international consulting firm specializing in helping businesses both large and small move forward to growing their businesses to the next level.  He holds a Master of Science from Aix-Marseille University.

“Jean-Luc Cervera’s experience in winning business model strategies and complex solution sales, including enhancing performance and profitability through innovative business models, will greatly benefit Cyemptive as it scales up its operations in the European market,” said Rob Pike, Cyemptive’s founder and CEO.

Cervera’s appointment is the second major move the company has made to expand its European operations in recent weeks, and the third to expand its overall international operations.  In August, the company announced its expansion into the United Kingdom and Germany with the appointment of former NETSOL Technologies board member and senior manager at KPMG Johannes Riedl as Vice President of Cyber Solutions Europe, and in September its expansion into the Middle East and the Americas with the appointment of international business executive and cybersecurity veteran Varun Vaid as Vice President of Cyber Solutions – strategic accounts.

“Cyemptive is an entity that introduces innovative technologies and approaches in the field of cybersecurity,” said Cervera.  “The company’s technology is a game changer, and it will disrupt traditional methods of protection and defense against cyberattacks”.

Cyemptive has created next generation layers of cybersecurity that are essential add-ons for businesses to achieve cyber safety.  When added to the customer’s existing capabilities, Cyemptive’s cybersecurity solutions eliminate damage from occurring even from previously unknown attack techniques.  Cyemptive’s pre-emptive solutions are the only ones on the market today guaranteed to protect computing environments before damage can be inflicted.
