Matt Loeb will step down as CEO of the Chicago-area ISACA on Nov. 9, ending his four-year tenure as head of the association for business technology professionals.
In a statement, ISACA didn’t provide a reason for Loeb’s departure but instead listed several accomplishments under his leadership. Specifically, the association noted it had grown the number of credentialed professionals by 30 percent, increased the number of individual members by 20 percent, launched new initiatives such as a certification program for cybersecurity professionals, and acquired the CMMI Institute.
“The rewards of my service to ISACA are many,” Loeb said in the statement. “However, what I will remember most is the inspiration I have received from my many interactions with our dedicated chapter leaders around the world, our 165,000 member and certified professionals who look to us each day for ways to work for greater impact and better navigate their careers, and our 220 employees who work tirelessly each day on behalf of our incredible professional community.”
Loeb joined ISACA in 2014. He previously was staff executive at IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers), where he worked for more than 20 years. He also was executive director of the IEEE Foundation.
ISACA reported $58 million in revenue in its most recent tax filings, but in an email, Loeb said the group in on track to hit $73 million in the 2018 fiscal year.
ISACA’s board of directors has formed a selection committee to lead the search to find Loeb’s successor.
