SAN MATEO, Calif. (March 21, 2024) – Arkose Labs, the global leader in bot management and account security, today announced the appointment of Patrick Kehoe to CMO. In this role, Kehoe will oversee the strategic direction of the brand, content marketing, demand generation, product marketing, and digital marketing. With his proven track record as an innovative marketer and growth driver, Kehoe is expected to propel Arkose Labs into its next phase of global market leadership in the cybersecurity sector. Kehoe sits on the company’s executive leadership team and reports directly to Founder and CEO Kevin Gosschalk

Kehoe joins Arkose Labs at a banner time. The company outperformed all financial and operational goals in 2023. Deloitte honored Arkose Labs for the third consecutive year as one of the fastest growing companies in North America,, and TIME recognized the company’s Arkose Bot Manager platform on its annual “Best Inventions” list, which features the 200 most extraordinary innovations changing the world around us. 

“We’re delighted to welcome Patrick to the team,” said Gosschalk. “His vast experience in the cybersecurity industry and his reputation as a marketer who pushes on thinking differently while leaning into data-led insights will accelerate our growth. His vision for how we communicate our mission and the value we add to the biggest companies in the world aligns perfectly with our business goals.”

Kehoe expressed his enthusiasm about the opportunities ahead, stating, “I’m thrilled to be joining Arkose Labs at this pivotal time in the industry. The sophistication of automated attacks is on the rise, adversaries have emerged from the underbelly of the dark web to build cybercrime-as-a-service businesses, and AI is enabling persistent and more intelligent bots. It’s clear that innovative solutions like those provided by Arkose Labs are essential,” 

Kehoe said. “I’m excited to partner with our customers, who are global market leaders, to ensure their needs are met. Together, we’ll  improve their consumers’ digital experiences and reduce the cost and impact of financially motivated adversaries’ attacks.”

Prior to joining Arkose Labs, Kehoe was CMO at Coalfire, a global risk management and compliance firm, and Axan, now Digital.AI, driving growth and shareholder value for each.
