Tenable Network Security’s founding CEO stepped down late last week.

According to a statement from the Columbia-based cybersecurity company, Ron Gula will remain with the company as chairman of the board, and is leading a search for his CEO successor.

Gula, who started his career at the NSA and went on to become an entrepreneur, was one of the three cofounders who created the company in 2002. The move comes at a time of rapid growth at the company following last year’s $250 million Series B. It was a record raise, and the largest of a handful of big-money Maryland cybersecurity funding rounds to close out the year.

Tenable added 12,000 square feet of office space near its headquarters in Columbia earlier this year. CFO Steve Vintz said the company is looking to add a total of 200 employees this year.

“Because of our strong position, Ron and the company have started the succession planning process to search for the next CEO to scale Tenable into one of the top security companies globally,” the company said in a statement. “It’s a natural progression for high-growth software companies tackling massive markets to proactively make this transition, and Ron wants to make sure Tenable reaches its full potential.”

During the search, Gula’s fellow cofounders, Jack Huffard and Renaud Deraison, will lead day-to-day operations.
