He brings a deep understanding of the global partnership landscape and commercial sales opportunities, that he will leverage in his continual scaling of 2F's offerings.

"TJ has been a foundational member of the team since day one, and has been absolutely vital to the successes we have been fortunate to share with our customers," said Tyler Sweatt, 2F's CEO. "TJ was my first sales hire at Second Front, and after watching him continue to grow, learn, and exceed all expectations, I am pumped to congratulate him on his appointment to CRO."

Conner has served as an Independent Board Director at 2F since September 2023 and brings over two decades of cybersecurity and risk mitigation in high-risk environments to his new role. Conner joins the company from Westinghouse Electric Company, where he served as CISO, and has held additional roles as CISO of the US Intelligence Community supporting the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA).

"Matt's expertise across mission-critical and regulated environments adds outsized value to the Second Front mission," added Sweatt.
