Xtract One Technologies Expands Leadership Team With a Pair of New Additions
New hires bolster innovation initiatives and advance the company’s strategic vision in physical security and patron experience.
TORONTO — Threat detection and security solution company Xtract One Technologies announced today the appointment of two new hires: Joshua Douglas and Christopher Feusner, as the company’s new senior vice president of product & engineering and vice president of sales, respectively.
Xtract One “prioritizes the patron access experience by leveraging AI,” the company announcement says.
Douglas is “a recognized expert in the fields of behavioral analytics, cybersecurity, and physical security,” according to the Xtract One announcements. He joins from Mimecast, where he served as senior VP of product management and adds product management and engineering leadership expertise to Xtract One.
Prior to Xtract One, Douglas has also held leadership positions at Raytheon, Forcepoint, and TRC Companies. At Xtract One, he will lead the product and engineering groups to “accelerate and drive the company’s roadmap in alignment with customer expectations for the future,” the announcement says.
This role includes building on Xtract One’s solutions that are currently in market as well as developing a roadmap for the company’s future product development.
Feusner is a 20-year security industry veteran with skills in understanding, developing and deploying effective go-to-market strategies across multiple industries, forged from his years spent as a systems integrator and a manufacturer.
He joins after roles at Avigilon and Motorola Solutions, and most recently at a stealth startup where he served as vice president of global sales, responsible for repositioning the sales organization, shifting the go-to-market strategy, developing and building a new channel partner program, rebuilding the company’s price list and assisting in preparing the company’s five-year revenue growth plan.
Feusner joins Xtract One to lead, scale and oversee the company’s sales team. Key responsibilities include driving the company’s business development, with a focus on expanding the lead funnel and channel partners strategy, as well as exploring new target vertical and international markets.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Joshua and Chris to the Xtract One team,” says Xtract One CEO Peter Evans in the company announcement. “Their joining signifies a strategic step towards driving our technological advancements and global implementation of our product.
“Their innovative thinking, extensive experience, and deep technological insights align with our mission. Undoubtedly, they will both play a pivotal role in pushing our vision forward and facilitating the growth of our company,” he says.
