The company said he will report to Dave Hansen, president and CEO, and succeed Greg Repas, who served as interim CFO since June 2012 after Charles Neral left the company.

Rapas will continue serving as vice president and chief accounting officer.

Branca will be responsible for leading SafeNet’s global finance functions such as accounting, financial planning and analysis, controllership, treasury and tax.

Branca brings to SafeNet 15 years of experience as a CFO in publicly-traded and private firms along with a technology background, Hansen said.

Branca held CFO positions at Numura Software, MTS Medication Technologies, Trak Communications and Reptron Electronics.

“The security industry is undergoing a dynamic transformation, and I believe that SafeNet’s market-leading data protection and rights management portfolios are well positioned to capitalize on the growth that lies ahead, ” Branca said.

Branca most recently served as BMC’s vice president of finance, where he focused on integration work, and served six years as Numara’s VP and CFO prior to BMC’s acquisition of the company in January 2012.
