Imprivata announces strategic leadership transition



Current Imprivata CEO Gus Malezis has assumed a new role as a strategic advisor to the company, with Fran Rosch joining as the new CEO, effective January 1, 2024.

Imprivata is excited to see Malezis embark on this new chapter, and the company wishes him continued success in his expanded role, it said in a press release.

The board is confident that Malezis’ insights and expertise will continue to contribute significantly to the strategic direction of Imprivata.

Rosch has a wealth of experience in cybersecurity and digital identity, having successfully led technology companies through growth and SaaS transformations.

He recently helped ForgeRock complete a successful IPO and merger into Ping, under the Thoma Bravo family.

His background also includes service at cybersecurity companies Symantec and Verisign.

Fran Rosch said: “I’m thrilled and honoured to join such a growth-minded company as Imprivata and take the reins from Gus.

“Imprivata is committed to its customers, helping them leverage Digital Identity to bring security and ease of use to industries that depend on invisible, quick security.

“I love the identity space and look forward to leading Imprivata through the next stage of growth.”

Rosch will engage with Imprivata’s customers in the coming weeks to gain an intimate understanding of their challenges.

This direct interaction aims to inform the next stage of growth in Imprivata’s journey, ensuring that the company continues to meet and exceed customer expectations.

Andrew Almeida, Partner at Thoma Bravo, said: “On behalf of the Board, I wish to congratulate Gus on this new opportunity and would also like to extend our sincerest gratitude for the value creation he has driven as CEO.

“His leadership at Imprivata has been a critical force in the company’s success over the last 6+ years and his strategic vision is one of the main reasons customers continue to rely on Imprivata’s solutions.

“We look forward to continuing to work with Gus on the board and in future roles at Thoma Bravo.

“We are also delighted to welcome Fran in his new role and convey the confidence our Board has in Fran taking Imprivata to the next level of growth.”
