Leadership

Meet the Red Berry Innovations leadership team – experienced executives with careers spanning decades of accomplishment in vulnerability research, artificial intelligence, compliance, program management, and risk management.

Terry Reinert
Chief Executive Officer

Self-taught to program computers at an early age and figuring out how the intricacies of complex systems worked in order to improve their design or find vulnerabilities has led Terry into a successful cyber career. Terry served in the United States Marine Corps and then pursued an education from Florida Institute of Technology to receive his Bachelor’s in Computer Engineering and Master’s in Information Assurance and Cybersecurity. He has discovered and exploited dozens of 0-day vulnerabilities in critical control systems, Internet of Things devices, telematics systems, space-based platforms, and weapon systems. Furthering his career, Terry joined as a leader of a cybersecurity start-up, building a highly talented team, bringing in millions of dollars in contracts, and helping customers secure their systems from attacks and vulnerabilities. Terry is a Certified Information Security Manager (CISM) and a Global Industrial Cyber Security Professional (GICSP).

Courtney Reinert
Chief Operations Officer

Analytical from the start, Courtney can’t help but calculate the time, distance, and cost of everything around her. She gained her Bachelor’s in Management as a science experiment to keep costs low and finish in record time. With her love for understanding the world and connecting people, she obtained her Master’s in International Business and continued her education earning a Ph.D. in Human Capital Management with a focus on Team Resilience. Courtney can look at any process from technology to production lines to figure out how to decrease time and resources to save clients millions of dollars. Courtney finds ways to use the resources available to automate processes and help organizations be efficient. She also applies her knowledge and experience analyzing human and attacker behavior to develop models for detecting anomalous behavior within networks or to develop techniques for avoiding detection. Courtney is a Certified Information Security Manager (CISM) and a Program Management Professional (PMP). She has been teaching graduate level courses in cybersecurity and risk management at Bellevue University since 2013.
