Wallarm Announces Key Sales and Product Management Executive Appointments to Drive Growth

Wallarm remains laser-focused on delivering outstanding API Security products, service and support with new appointments

Wallarm, the end-to-end API security company, is excited to announce several additions to the executive leadership team to bolster Wallarm’s continued expansion in the application and API security market, which is expected to exceed $10B by 2032.

“I am thrilled to announce the addition of two exceptional individuals to our executive team,” said Ivan Novikov, CEO and co-founder of Wallarm. “David Stokey, our new VP of Sales, brings a wealth of experience and a proven track record in driving revenue growth. His strategic vision and leadership will be instrumental in propelling our sales efforts to new heights and expanding our market presence.”

“Similarly, Tim Erlin, our new Head of Product, whose innovative approach and deep understanding of customer needs, will be invaluable in shaping and enhancing our product offerings,” continued Ivan. “His expertise will play a pivotal role in maintaining our trajectory of phenomenal expansion in the market.”

“Together, these outstanding professionals will contribute their talents and expertise to further strengthen our company’s position as a market leader. I have complete confidence in their abilities, and I am excited to see the positive impact they will have on our journey towards continued success,” concluded Ivan.

David Stokey joins as the new VP of Sales. With more than 18 years of sales and sales leadership experience, Stokey is known for recruiting and building high performing teams at high-growth technology companies. Stokey will oversee Wallarm’s sales operations and continue to scale the sales organization for hyper growth around Wallarm’s end-to-end API Security platform. Before joining Wallarm, Stokey was the VP of Sales at Stacklet, a leader in cloud governance and security. Stokey has had an incredible leadership journey with much success and acquisitions including Blue Hexagon (acquired by Qualys) as its Chief Revenue Officer, ThousandEyes as the VP of Sales Central US (acquired by Cisco for $1 billion), and three additional acquisitions at Computer Associates (acquired by Broadcom), VaraLogix (acquired by BMC Software), and BuildForge (acquired by IBM).

“I’m excited to join this exceptional team!” said David Stokey. “I am elated to take on the challenge of delivering our outstanding end-to-end API security solution to new customers. Together, we’ll forge strong partnerships and drive unparalleled growth that will solidify our position as industry leaders.”

Tim Erlin joins Wallarm as the Head of Product, bringing more than 20 years of cybersecurity product management experience to the team. He spent the early part of his career in vulnerability management, managing and leading products teams at nCircle, Tripwire and Belden. More recently, Tim led the product innovation function at SecurityScorecard. He has expertise in multiple cybersecurity markets, including vulnerability management, configuration assessment, compliance assessment, application security, cloud security, threat intelligence, and attack surface management. Tim is also an accomplished contributor to the cybersecurity community as a speaker, writer, podcast host, and frequently quoted source in the media.

“I’m truly thrilled to be joining the team at Wallarm,” said Tim Erlin. “There’s no doubt that API attacks are a growing concern for data-driven organizations, and security teams have limited choices in how they address the threat. It’s rare to find such a near-perfect combination of a customer problem, market timing, and company position. Wallarm represents an amazing opportunity to deliver real security value to customers, and I’m thrilled to help shape that journey.”
