Melissa Nacerino is responsible for building and executing Netskope’s partner marketing and experience strategy. Since joining the company, she helped to launch both Netskope Prime, an invitation-only technical enablement and recognition program, as well as the company’s official Services Delivery Program to enable, authorize and support partners in delivering advanced services across the Netskope Platform. Her team has also delivered new marketing programs and promotions, which accelerated partner pipeline growth.

Nacerino is a champion for diversity and inclusion in tech and is proud to be a visual role model for other women seeking out careers in the cybersecurity industry. She believes in the importance of seeing diversity reflected in positions in tech, especially in leadership, as role models for the next generation of leaders. Earlier this year, Nacerino became the Executive Sponsor for the company’s women’s networking group, the Awesome Women of Netskope (AWON). Since taking the reins, she has launched a mentoring program, established quarterly AWON sessions, welcomed guest speakers, started AWON’s book club and organized participation in professional development forums for dozens of employees.
