Alton Kizziah (pictured) has joined Lodestone Security LLC, the global cybersecurity firm wholly owned by specialty insurer Beazley Plc, as chief executive officer.
An information security expert with 22 years of experience, Kizziah transferred from MGT Consulting Group, where he was executive vice president and general manager of the company’s technology solutions group. At Lodestone, Kizziah will lead a newly expanded senior leadership team.
Priorities and focus
“I am thrilled to join the Beazley family in helping Lodestone take the next step in its evolution,” said Kizziah, who is also a US Army veteran, in a launch. “Our first step will be to formalize our approach to deliver great results more efficiently, while preparing the organization for growth and scale.”
According to Lodestone, the CEO’s focus will be establishing the platform, processes and capacity to enable the company to drive deeper engagement with existing Beazley customers. Another goal is to make Lodestone an “industry recognized first choice” when it comes to cyber incident preparedness and response.
“Lodestone is an increasingly important part of Beazley’s cyber ecosystem, and we are pleased to have brought in someone with Alton’s experience to lead the company into its exciting new phase of development,” said Paul Bantick, global head of Beazley cyber risks.
“Building and assembling teams, driving innovation in the industry and creating service businesses are highlights of the Alton experience. This will be invaluable as we grow Lodestone even further, advancing ambitions to provide the effective cybersecurity support that businesses in the United States and beyond increasingly need.”
