Keith Alexander, IronNet Founder and co-Chief Executive Officer, will ring the Opening Bell® at the New York Stock Exchange tomorrow morning – Thursday, Sept. 9 – to celebrate the company’s recent exchange listing following the completion of its business combination with LGL Systems Acquisition Corp. on August 26, 2021.
“IronNet’s participation in the New York Stock Exchange bell ringing ceremony marks another milestone for our company and its ongoing mission to help organizations better defend themselves against cyberattacks,” said Alexander. “I am honored to represent our entire team of brilliant, customer-focused employees who drive IronNet’s sustained success through their steadfast commitment to transforming cybersecurity through Collective Defense.
