One outstanding individual who has played a vital role in this regard is Raffaele Mautone, Founder and CEO of AaDya Security, based in Detroit, Michigan. Mautone’s strategic thinking and remarkable leadership have been instrumental in his success as an IT, sales, and operations professional, having worked with top-tier firms such as Duo, FireEye, McAfee, and Dell. His extensive experience in the IT and security industry has laid the foundation for his work with AaDya, where he has consistently led his team in successful acquisitions, strategic planning and implementation, and deploying complex multi-tiered programs.
Mautone’s exceptional skills and experience extend beyond IT and security. He is well-versed in implementing marketing and sales strategies, positioning companies for future growth, and deploying applications and business process improvements to facilitate bookings, leads, and new go-to-market programs. Mautone holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Eastern Michigan University, and his expertise has also led him to serve as a board member for the Detroit Regional LGBT Chamber of Commerce, among other notable positions.
