Joe Pindar

Director of Product Strategy & CTO, Gemalto
PRODUCT STRATEGIST focussed on security and data protection, working in the Office of the CTO – part of Gemalto’s Data Protection business (formerly SafeNet). My days are spent building and communicating situational awareness to product managers and engineering leaders. I assist in formulating roadmaps and prioritizing development to align with market trends, and work across Gemalto to create go to market plans.

Being data driven, I do not rely on crystal balls and gut feel. I much prefer to identify data points to measure and monitor performance. When data is not available or weak signals are conflicting, I talk to customers and use experiments to identify direction to guide scenario planning. User needs remain my primary focus, and I spend significant time meeting new and existing customers.

Before working at Gemalto, I worked in the storage industry and UK government. My job roles have covered technical pre-sales, security consultancy and research, network architecture and engineering development. Always a member of the ‘blue team’, I have received awards for my research on aligning Information Assurance and Cyber Security with business strategy.
