New Zealand-based cyber security email specialist SMX has hired Mark Bailey as CTO to lead the company's growing engineering team. Bailey, who previously served as Head of Delivery and interim CTO at New Zealand's largest cryptocurrency exchange, Easy Crypto, brings more than 20 years of technology leadership experience to SMX.

“My focus over the years has always been on digital products and services that serve humans and society in a meaningful way, and this drew me to SMX," said Bailey. "I am excited about this opportunity to lead the technology and engineering functions to deliver on SMX’s vision of creating solutions that help people stay safe in this highly connected world.”

SMX, which was founded in 2005, has expanded its business in New Zealand and Australia as more businesses and government agencies recognize the need to secure email systems. Richard Fraser, CEO of SMX, said: “Mark’s appointment increases SMX’s highly end user aware approach to delivering cyber security solutions to market and supporting our channel partners.”
