Prior to Everbridge, Ms. Larson served as Director of Corporate Security Strategy and Risk at Twilio where she executed a comprehensive corporate security programme focused on enterprise incident management, operational resilience, health and safety, gap and risk analysis, and security governance and structure.

Before Twilio, she served as SVP and Head of Enterprise Incident Management at Wells Fargo Bank leading the design, development, maintenance, and execution of crisis and incident management and business interruption recovery programmes. Her background also includes roles as CSO and Head of Physical Security and Investigations at Bank of the West overseeing corporate-wide security programmes and cross-functional collaboration across all business lines and operational functions to ensure the safety and security of the bank’s 10,000 employees, customers, assets, and brand across 550+ branch, office and data centre locations.

“It is an honour to join Everbridge and become part of their mission as a global organisational resilience leader,” said Larson. “I'm passionate about leveraging technology to bolster security measures, improve operational resilience, and enhance organisational efficiency. I look forward to being part of the robust security team that Everbridge has in place and to work directly with organisations and government agencies across North America to drive organisational resilience, growth, and success.
