Earlier this month McAfee, company that specializes in providing security software solutions for home and business users, made the news here on FindMySoft because Robert Siciliano, Identity Theft Expert and Consultant for McAfee, shared some tips for better password security and some tips for better social media security with the public. The security company now makes the news because it is undergoing some leadership changes.

David DeWalt will no longer be the head of McAfee; after more than 4 years as the company’s president he decided to quit the now Intel-owned security company. But he will continue as a non-employee member of the McAfee Board of Directors. “I’ll be leaving McAfee in great hands,” said DeWalt. “We had strong results, a record quarter and a great pipeline of innovation. We have a very strong foundation for the second half of 2011 and I look forward to serving on McAfee’s Board of Directors.”

DeWalt will not be replaced by one person, he will be replaced by two, namely Michael DeCesare and Todd Gebher. So to put it other words, McAfee will have two presidents. The co-presidents will report to Renee James, Chairman of McAfee and Senior VP and GM of Intel.

“With the formation of the office of the president, we have two proven executives with long histories of accomplishment and leadership at McAfee,” said James. “Intel continues to be very pleased with McAfee’s performance in terms of both sales and innovation since the acquisition was announced last year. I appreciate Dave’s many contributions to the company and look forward to continuing to work with him on the McAfee Board of Directors. We anticipate a smooth transition and I am confident that the incredibly talented people of McAfee will remain focused on innovation, delivering products and services that help make connecting to the digital world safer and more secure.”

DeCesare, who joined McAfee in 2007, is currently executive vice president for global operations while Gebhart, who joined McAfee in 1999, is executive vice president and general manager, consumer, mobile and small business at McAfee. They will assume the role of co-presidents by Q3 2011.
