Neustar, a provider of innovative solutions like network addressing, least cost routing and policy management, as well as directory services, has appointed Mark F. Bregman as chief technology officer (CTO).
In his new role, Bregman will be responsible for Neustar's product technology strategy and product development efforts. Bregman will report to Lisa Hook (News - Alert), president and CEO of Neustar. He will be based in Neustar's office in Mountain View, Calif.
Bregman's appointment builds on a series of recent high-level hires at Neustar from the technology world, including Scott Blake Harris, Neustar's executive vice president, Legal and External Affairs; and Scott Deutchman, Neustar's vice president, Legal and External Affairs, company officials said.
“I am very pleased to announce the appointment of Mark Bregman as our new CTO,” said Hook, in a statement. “As the world's leading provider of network addressing, routing and policy management, Neustar is an attractive destination for today's top technology talent.”
“As Neustar continues to provide these critical services, along with cyber security and data analytics, to network operators, Internet companies, and media companies, having a CTO with Mark's breadth of experience is a tremendous asset,” Hook added.
Prior to joining Neustar, Bregman worked with Symantec (News - Alert) Corporation, where he served as executive vice president and chief technology officer for over four years. At Symantec, he was responsible for developing the company's technology strategy and overseeing its investments in advanced research and development, security and technology services.
Bregman has also serviced as executive vice president, Product Operations at Veritas Corporation, which merged with Symantec in 2005. Prior to Veritas, he was CEO of AirMedia. In his highly successful career stint, Bregman also spent 16 years in a variety of roles at IBM (News - Alert).
“What excites me most about coming to Neustar is the opportunity to work for a company that demonstrates top-flight technology innovation across multiple platforms,” said Bregman.
“Joining the company when it is building on its number portability and Internet infrastructure services by creating cloud-based digital rights management systems, rolling out advanced cyber-security services for both the government and private sector, and offering enterprises new data and analytics tools, offers me an opportunity to help drive Neustar's business success in multiple arenas,” Bregman added.
