I’m pleased to announce Mike Berry is joining McAfee as our Chief Financial Officer. Mike’s been a CFO for more than 10 years in both public and private technology companies.
Mike most recently was Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer, and Chief Operating Officer at FireEye, responsible for worldwide finance, accounting, data analytics, investor relations, facilities, procurement, information technology, manufacturing operations, and internal audit.
Prior to FireEye, Mike served as Chief Financial Officer of Informatica. Additionally, he led finance and other operations for a number of technology companies, including IO, SolarWinds, and i2 Technologies.
I’ve known Mike for a while now—we served together on the board of directors of Rapid7. He understands the complexity and challenges of our industry, and he believes in the unique perspective we bring to the market. Namely, that it will take all of us, working together in an open, integrated architecture, to ensure a more secure world.
I also hear he’s got a mean slap shot. I couldn’t say…I prefer the basketball court to the hockey rink…but here’s what I can say: he’s a great addition to McAfee.
