DigiCert hires new GTM and finance leaders for growth

Digital trust services provider DigiCert has brought in a new go-to-market leader and a new finance chief.

Dave Packer has been appointed chief revenue officer and Jugnu Bhatia has been named as chief financial officer.

“DigiCert just closed its largest quarterly bookings in the company’s history, and I am thrilled to have such exceptional leaders joining our executive team at an important stage in our growth,” said Amit Sinha, CEO of DigiCert.

“Jugnu and Dave bring deep operational and leadership experience at scale. With our continued digital trust innovation and go-to-market execution, these leaders will play a critical role as we drive to $1 billion and beyond in annual recurring revenue.”

Packer brings more than 30 years of tech industry experience, spanning leadership roles in sales, field operations, alliances, professional services, customer success, and support. Prior to DigiCert, Packer led worldwide field operations at Matillion, as well as holding roles at Ping Identity and E2open.

“The need for digital trust is only going to keep growing as the tectonic shifts from quantum computing and GenAI continue to impact every part of work and life, and DigiCert is in the prime position to address these growing needs,” said Packer.

Bhatia joins DigiCert from Zscaler, where he most recently served as SVP, finance and chief accounting officer. During his eight-year tenure, Zscaler grew from a private firm to a Nasdaq-100 company, scaling from $100m in ARR to more than $2 billion in ARR.
