As Chief Channel Officer, Bob Layton leads eSentire’s channel sales organization and partner strategy, with a focus on growing and expanding eSentire’s Partner Program globally.

Bob comes to eSentire with 25 years of experience in the technology industry, specifically in B2B and B2C sales, channels, and marketing. Across the last decade, he has driven transformation and international expansion through channel-leveraged strategies and has successfully created new strategy and execution models that have led to MRR growth and new routes to market in security, services and SaaS platforms. Immediately prior to eSentire, he helped drive the successful acquisition of Digital Defense by creating new paths to revenue with an ecosystem of partners, alliances, and technical integrations.
