The cybersecurity company McAfee Corp. announced Tuesday that CEO Peter Leav will step down and be replaced by Greg Johnson, a former executive of Intuit Inc. INTU.
In a statement, the company said the move comes when McAfee moves to a gaming consumer protection company. In November, McAfee agreed to be acquired by a group of investors led by Advent International Corp. for an estimated business value of about $ 14 billion, and was deprived about a year after its 2020 IPO.
“Greg brings more than 25 years of consumer business experience to leading and truly innovative brands,” McAfee President Bruce Chizen said in a statement. “Greg has an impressive track record of cultivating multimillion-dollar growth strategies for consumer companies while delivering growing value to customers. Greg’s proven experience makes him the leader chosen to lead the company’s future growth.”
Johnson will take the reins on June 13.
“The McAfee brand has an enviable reputation for trust, quality and innovation and I am excited to lead the company in its next phase of growth,” it said in a statement.
