Lehman will report to Dan Burns, Optiv’s CEO.

“As we continue to grow our business organically and inorganically, and expand into new geographic regions, we needed a leader with a track record of accomplishments with transformational programs and large international teams,” said Burns.

“Paul is a solid business leader with extensive experience in leveraging the power of technology and operations to achieve business goals. His experience, combined with his deep management and technical expertise, makes him the perfect fit for Optiv, and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome him on board.”

“Optiv continues to prove it is serious about helping clients solve their cyber security problems,” said Lehman. “I am proud to join a company that is so client-focused and understands the critical role that IT plays in helping its clients meet their specific business objectives.”

Before joining Optiv, Lehman served as CIO and senior VP of global technology services for Experian. Prior to Experian, Lehman spent nearly 15 years with Affiliated Computer Services, a Xerox Company, in various CIO and senior VP roles for a number of business groups.

Lehman sits on the executive board of the CTO Forum, providing leadership for the RETHINK series, a program that addresses common challenges in information technology, software development, and research and development. He received his bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Christian Brothers University.
