In July, cybersecurity vendor McAfee confirmed
it had launched a new organization in charge of partner and customer management.
The news came amid reports of executive layoffs
, including global channel chief Richard Steranka. A McAfee spokesman confirmed a reorganization had taken place, and that “in the spirit of keeping our partners and customers at the core of all we do,” the vendor created a new chief revenue office, comprised of corporate sales, corporate marketing and customer success.
“As part of this new organization, all corporate customer-facing functions, inclusive of the sales team from the formerly acquired SkyHIgh Networks, now report to John Giamatteo, president and chief revenue officer, a proven leader with more than 30 years experience in leading transformation at technology companies,” the spokesman said. “Most recently, Giamatteo led McAfee’s successful consumer business where, under his leadership, McAfee developed sustaining partnerships with OEMs, service providers and alliance partners to improve the consumer experience.”Here's where to get more on the shake-up at McAfee.
