Jordan Rackie Included in New Program Designed to Recognize Achievements of Georgia Institute of Technology Alumni Who are Improving the Human Condition
CLEVELAND, Ohio & ATLANTA – July 15, 2020 – Keyfactor, the leader in securing digital identities, today announced that CEO Jordan Rackie was named to the Georgia Tech Alumni Association’s inaugural 40 Under 40, which honors individuals who have innovated in industry and positively impacted communities across the globe.
An expert in developing and leading modern go-to-market teams and strategy, Jordan has led multiple companies through large-scale growth, creating over $500M in shareholder value over the past ten years. When Insight Partners, which has 400+ portfolio companies and over $30B under management, invested $77M into Keyfactor in January 2019, Jordan was appointed CEO at age 33. Jordan is responsible for setting the company vision, driving both top and bottom-line results and managing Board relations.
Jordan’s previous experience includes SVP of global revenue at Tricentis, a globally recognized leader in software test automation and software quality assurance solutions, and chief revenue officer for QASymphony (merged with Tricentis), ranked by Inc. as the 8th fastest growing software business in the U.S. in 2017. He was also a sales leader and executive for Pardot (acquired by Salesforce).
Jordan is heavily involved in the Atlanta community, having been a volunteer mentor for the Techstars startup accelerator programs and giving his time to Junior Achievement Atlanta, supporting the local public school system. He’s also held Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) board seats for the Sales Leadership Society and actively supports the Atlanta Congenital Heart Walk and its foundation.
“I am extremely honored to be recognized as a 40 under 40 honoree, especially in this program’s inaugural year and knowing how competitive the nominees were,” said Rackie. “Being nominated to this list is a testament to the hard work and dedication that Georgia Tech fosters for its students and alumni. I’m excited to be able to share this award with my fellow alumni, my company, our partners and customers and hope to continue making an indelible mark as a Yellow Jacket for my peers, the local community and in the security industry.
“I am amazed and humbled by the accomplishments of these innovators and trendsetters. They epitomize the focus that our Georgia Tech alumni have to make the world a better place,” shares Dene Sheheane, president of the Georgia Tech Alumni Association.
Those nominated must have completed at least one semester at Georgia Tech, be under the age of 40 as of June 30, 2020 and have made an impact in their profession or community, spanning all industries and sectors. A committee of 26 faculty, staff and volunteer leaders, who collectively represented all Georgia Tech colleges, scored each nominee using a 25-point rubric. Selection Committee member Bert Reeves, MGT 2000, State Representative in the Georgia House of Representatives, expressed that, “I was blown away at the nearly impossible task of scoring the applicants. These are folks who are not just impacting their community and state, but in some cases, their country and the entire world. It is truly inspiring to see the innovation and passion that our alumni are contributing to many of the greatest issues our world faces today.”
