Security software and securities law have been added to the mix of expertise as two new members have been named to the Arizona Technology Council Board of Directors.

Rich Hlavka, CEO of Lynx Technology Partners, and Travis J. Leach, partner at Ballard Spahr, were appointed to a board that represents a diverse set of prominent Arizona-based organizations. “The talent, expertise and energy that both Rich and Travis bring to the table are exactly what we require in order to continue building Arizona’s high-tech hub,” says Steven G. Zylstra, president and CEO of the Arizona Technology Council.

Hlavka has spent many years as a senior executive in the security software space. Before being named to his current role of CEO in August 2015, he served as vice president of global sales at Interset.

Previously, he was senior vice president of business development for HEAT Software (formerly FrontRange & Lumension aka PatchLink). During his sales leadership tenure, revenues at Lumension (PatchLink) grew more than 900 percent in a two-and-a-half-year period and 400 percent for business development. Additionally, Lumension ranked as the 14th fastest growing company on the Inc. 500 for private businesses.

Leach focuses his practice at Ballard Spahr on corporate and securities law, with an emphasis on public offerings, private placements, corporate governance matters, Sarbanes-Oxley and SEC compliance, and mergers and acquisitions. He is co-practice leader of the Emerging Growth and Private Capital Group, and assists in leading the firm’s sports practice.

Leach also is involved in the community, including serving on the Arizona Governor’s Council on Spinal and Head Injuries, the Arizona Coyotes Foundation, the Veteran Tickets Foundation, and Arizona State University’s Sports Law and Business Program. He also participates in Tallwave’s High Tide program.
