Toronto, Ontario, May 5, 2020 — FutureVault, an industry-leading digital vault platform for institutions and enterprises, appoints Nevin Markwart as the company’s Chief Information Security Officer (CISO).
Markwart is a serial entrepreneur who brings a multi-disciplinary approach to organizational information security based on his nearly 40 years of career experience in the fields of professional sports, global asset management and computer security. His professional career began in 1983 when he was selected in the first round of the NHL Entry Draft by the Boston Bruins which led to a nine-year professional hockey career in Boston. Following his hockey career and subsequent graduation from Northeastern University’s MBA program in 1994, Markwart led significant business units at the storied, Boston-based asset managers Wellington Management and Fidelity Investment before rising to the rank of CEO at two major Canadian-based asset management organizations. Retooling for the “future of business,” Markwart recently graduated (2019) from Brown University with a Master of Science Degree in Cybersecurity and ultimately completing his formal computer science education which he initially embarked upon at the University of Regina in 1981.
“I am excited to join the innovative team here at FutureVault to build upon the organization’s existing information security regiment”, commented Markwart. “Maintaining bank-level cybersecurity compliance requires ‘leadership from the top’ in the form of budget resources and nurturing an organizational culture of employee participation — both of which are a top priority for me to advance as FutureVault’s CISO.”
FutureVault Executive Chair G Scott Paterson commented, “Nevin [Markwart] brings FutureVault best of class cybersecurity implementation tools and methods while his leadership will advance the maturity of our organization’s internal cybersecurity culture.” John Orr, FutureVault Chief Executive Officer, said: “We are delighted to have him join FutureVault and lead our information and cybersecurity team at this exciting juncture where we see our vision of the future – digital Personal Life Management and Business Enterprise Management Vaults becoming ubiquitous for individuals and businesses globally.”
The hiring of Markwart to lead FutureVault’s information and cybersecurity is a critical step forward, positioning the firm as an industry-leader, pioneering the information management and digital vault space.
