Hanson began his career in the U.S. Air Force and served as an IT director for the U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

“I can’t think of a better executive than Rick to step in and lead our go-to-market functions during this period of rapid growth at Delinea,” said Art Gilliland, CEO, Delinea. “We are very excited to continue our journey with Rick bringing decades of leadership to carry our go-to-market strategy and execution forward.”
