ArmorText Names Dr. Harry G. Broadman to Its Advisory Board
Today, ArmorText, the developer of a secure messaging and file-sharing platform for companies in domestic and international markets, announced the appointment of Dr. Harry G. Broadman to its advisory board.
Broadman is currently chief executive officer and managing partner of Proa Global Partners LLC, a cross-border transaction advisory firm specializing in reducing exposure to the risks of investing in high-growth emerging markets. Broadman recently stepped down from PwC, where he founded and led the firm’s global business growth and risk-mitigation management consulting practice. Previously, he worked at Albright Capital Management, a private equity fund focused on emerging markets. In earlier positions, he was U.S. Assistant Trade Representative, where he sat on the board of the Overseas Private Investment Corporation and served on the Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S., was chief of staff for the President’s Council of Economic Advisers, and a World Bank official in China, Russia, and Africa.
“Many companies were hit hard in 2017 by global ransomware attacks, targeted hacks, and phishing scams,” said Navroop Mitter, founder and chief executive officer of ArmorText. “In every instance the affected companies had to undergo extensive cybersecurity risk assessments to determine if their systems were safe to use in the future. Needless to say, corporate boards and C-Suites found themselves in a world of technological, financial, and reputational hurt. That has led us to believe that educating the front office is as important as advising those that manage the enterprise’s IT infrastructure. To this end, Harry has a lot to offer.”
Broadman received an A.B. in economics, magna cum laude, from Brown University, where he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa, and a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Michigan.
