Emily Larkin, Abrigo CISO receives Haas Technology Leadership award

Raleigh, NC – Emily Larkin, Abrigo’s Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), was named the 2022 Haas Technology Leadership Awardee for North America by Carlyle, a global investment firm. The award is given in memory of former Carlyle CIO Mike Haas to celebrate an exceptional technology leader.

Larkin has been with Abrigo since its inception in January 2019 and was previously with its heritage company, Sageworks, for five years. She oversaw the company’s transition from four separate companies (Banker’s Toolbox, FARIN, MainStreet Technologies, and Sageworks) into Abrigo.

Larkin’s leadership drives meaningful results and impact at Abrigo, where she led a re-engineering effort of Abrigo software products to reduce support costs, grow revenue, and increase customer satisfaction. Larkin is a developer of future talent, actively working with teams at all levels of the organization to achieve best-in-class engagement and retention rates. She has led the transformation to a risk-based cybersecurity program by automating the asset discovery and decommissioning process—all while maintaining N+1 regulatory compliance.

This is not the first time Larkin has been recognized for her hard work by her peers. She was previously named the CISO of the year by NC Tech, an association aimed to foster growth and champion innovation in the North Carolina tech sector.

“Emily Larkin is a perfect example of a CISO’s integral role in organizational success,” said Jay Blandford, CEO of Abrigo.  “She was instrumental in Abrigo’s founding, and her strategic vision extends not only to Abrigo’s technology but to our people as well.”

A champion of diversity, equity, and inclusion, Larkin created the Abrigo Women’s Group in 2018 and now serves as Executive Sponsor. She is a mentor to future leaders and serves on both the Champions Committee and Diversity Equity and Inclusion Movement at Abrigo.

Larkin is also an active benefactor in her North Carolina community, where she generously commits her time and expertise to women in technology initiatives and local shelters for disaster victims and families in need.
