IronKey is elated at its appointment of Colin Woodland as Director of Field Operations, EMEA for IronKey.
This engagement reaffirms IronKey’s focus and commitment on a region it views as vitally important at a time when it is experiencing rapid growth.

With over 20 years experience, 12 of which in management roles, Colin has a deep understanding in the value of building and retaining successful teams.
He was instrumental in establishing PGP’s EMEA Channel from inception to 10 distributors and 330 resellers, all successfully delivering revenue across 25 countries, increasing the business from $1m - $25m in just 6 years.
Colin’s career to date has primarily focused in security, with previous roles within Vantive (now Oracle), CyberAngel and Symantec.
Speaking on his appointment, Colin said : “I am thrilled to be joining at a time when data mobility is inarguably one of the biggest areas people are concerned with.
