Rick Dakin

I am pleased to announce that our Dallas office is growing by leaps and bounds. Leading the charge is Kurt Hagerman, the newly appointed managing director. Kurt will serve more than 60 clients in the Southwest region and oversee Coalfire’s strategic vision while building new client relationships for the company. Also joining the Dallas office are Rick Link as an IT audit director, Adam Bush as a senior auditor and Justin Baker as a regional sales manager.

Kurt has been leading Coalfire’s PCI practice since 2008. During his 18 years in information technology, Kurt has earned CISSP, CISA and PCI QSA certifications and has led more than 100 IT assessments and other governance risk and compliance programs.

We have been serving Texas-based clients for years, and we are excited to be setting up shop near them.  Kurt and his team are hitting the ground running, serving well-known clients such as Alon Brands, Buc-ee’s, CEC Enterprises, CAP Software, ConocoPhillips, Data Delivery Services, Heartland Payment Systems, Netspend, The Pinnacle Corporation, Radiant Systems, the State of Oklahoma and the University of Houston.

We expect many great things to come. Welcome aboard!
