CEO Tony Gebely’s interest in cybersecurity began when he took a university course on cryptography in 2003. Since then, he has had a focused career in the information technology field. He first dove into IT by leading custom software projects and building platforms in Drupal, and he worked up to positions such as Director of Digital Strategy and Director of Technology.

Most recently, Tony held the position of Chief Technology Officer for Family Office Exchange, a 30+ year-old membership organization for ultra-high-net-worth families and their advisors. During his tenure, he served as a subject matter expert on cybersecurity for the firm's 500 members. He routinely advised families on cybersecurity best practices, published several papers on the topic, and ran the firm's first Global Family Security Workshop. Tony also launched the organization's Technology Operations and Data Security Network which includes over 325 family office executives responsible for technology and cybersecurity. He also ran an annual meeting for the group.

Tony’s goal is to help businesses protect their assets and reputation by building strategies to achieve resilience amid cybersecurity and privacy risk.

Annapurna Cybersecurity Advisors is inspired by the Annapurna massif, a series of impressive peaks in north-central Nepal that Tony trekked in 2008.
