MIAMI, United States, June 20th, 2024/CyberNewsWire/--Cyber A.I. Group, Inc., an early stage cybersecurity, A.I. and IT services company, announced today the engagement of Walter L. Hughes as Chief Executive Officer. The announcement was made by A.J. Cervantes, Jr., Executive Chairman of Cyber A.I. Group and Chairman of Trilogy Capital Group, LLC, Cyber A.I.’s founding shareholder.


Walter Hughes has had an expansive 15+ year executive career across eight distinct industries, including transformative roles at Meta and Elevance Health (formerly Anthem), with impactful contributions to innovative startups and government sectors. Mr. Hughes’ deep experience spans nearly two decades in pioneering technology enterprises with a specific emphasis on the intricacies and applications of Artificial Intelligence.


“Walter's career has been a testament to the art of driving business transformation,” noted Mr. Cervantes. “Rooted in a solid foundation in finance and technology, his expertise has evolved, embracing and mastering the intricate processes of fostering business success. This mastery is underpinned by a profound application of Six Sigma methodologies and strategic venture capital endeavors, positioning him as a pioneering force.”


Mr. Hughes stated, “I’m absolutely thrilled to be joining CyberAI Group as CEO. With its cutting edge approach and incredible potential, it's a chance to leverage everything I've learned across multiple technology-driven industries and put it to work generating transformative change. Building on CyberAI’s strong foundation and seasoned management team, I'm excited to be a force at the forefront of this burgeoning business, shaping the future of this dynamic company.”


“The cybersecurity and IT services industries are highly fragmented and lend themselves to a proactive consolidation strategy,” continued Mr. Hughes.


“We believe a large pool of prospective acquisitions exists offering substantial opportunity for an emerging growth private company on a path to public ownership. The cybersecurity market alone has witnessed remarkable growth and reached a value of $202 billion in 2022. We are confident that an IT/cybersecurity services company with advanced A.I. capabilities can provide clients with numerous proactive and customized cybersecurity services to optimize technology security and improve business operations and performance.”


“The IT services industry has grown into one of the fastest growing sectors in the United States and around the world, with forecasts of continued double-digit growth over the next decade,” noted Mr. Cervantes.


“This is compounded by the massive proliferation of highly publicized data breaches and ransomware attacks that are further propelling demand for cybersecurity expertise. Cyber A.I. Group is leveraging this skyrocketing demand, combined with a core focus on fundamentals, by pursuing a “Buy-and-Build” strategy of acquiring a broad spectrum of IT services companies and positioning them to address the fast-growing needs for the cybersecurity and A.I. markets.”


Artificial intelligence, under development and building momentum for decades, is emerging as one of the most potentially powerful and disruptive forces in the Information Age. Recent moves have seen remarkable advances, such as the launches of OpenAI‘s ChatGPT A.I. chatbot and Google‘s Bard A.I. chatbot. This rapid proliferation of A.I. is introducing not just new capabilities, however, but also new dangers and security concerns. To capitalize on these opportunities and challenges, Cyber A.I. intends to integrate A.I. services in all aspects of its business as it expands.
