Agari Names Patrick Peterson CEO

Recognized Industry Pioneer and Founding Agari CEO to Lead the Path
Forward for Next-Generation Secure Email Cloud

FOSTER CITY, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Agari, the next-generation Secure Email Cloud that restores trust to the
inbox, announced today that Agari’s Founder and Executive Chairman
Patrick Peterson has been named Chief Executive Officer. Peterson, who
founded Agari in 2009 and served as CEO until 2016, is considered the
father of DMARC, a key open standard for confirming email authenticity.

During his nearly three years as Executive Chairman, Peterson held
innovation-focused operating roles at Agari touching product strategy,
industry thought leadership, and go-to-market relationships with
customers and partners.

Peterson replaces former CEO Ravi Khatod, who joined Agari in June of
2016. Under Khatod’s leadership as CEO, Agari tripled annual recurring
revenue (ARR) and substantially increased enterprise valuation
culminating in a $40 million growth equity round led by Goldman Sachs in
June of 2018. During his tenure, Khatod also launched innovative new
products and established Agari as the leader in the next-generation
Secure Email Cloud.

“I want to thank Ravi for the many contributions he delivered during his
nearly three years leading Agari,” said Peterson. “I am honored to have
the unique opportunity to lead Agari once again after staying close to
our business over the past three years. We are a substantially bigger
business now, delivering even more customer value through a leading set
of product offerings. My focus will continue to be on investing in the
next-generation Secure Email Cloud and enabling our many customers and
partners around the world to be successful.”

Peterson and the entire Agari executive team will showcase their
industry leadership March 4 through 8 at the RSA Conference 2019 in San
Francisco. To learn more and to schedule a 1:1 session with Agari
