With the summer coming to an end and the analyst event season on the horizon, the AR Team at Symantec is looking forward to seeing many of you in person over the next few months. We will be reaching out at shows, in person and over the phone to discuss product announcements, roadmaps relevant to our leading products and the new offerings we announced as part of Symantec 4.0. We'll also update you on important organizational news.
With those organizational updates in mind, I think it's worth repeating here recent news you may have missed. Symantec has nominated not one but two new independent members to join the company’s board. Both nominees have a wealth of experience and fascinating backgrounds.
The two nominees are
- Major General Suzanne Vautrinot, retiring commander of the 24th Air Force, the Air Force Service Component of the United States Cyber Command;
- Anita Sands, PhD, group managing director, head of change leadership and a member of the Executive Committee of UBS Wealth Management Americas.
You can read more about the nominees at the link below.
It's a move that some sources (see the link below) means good news for Symantec in many ways.
Voting will take place at Symantec’s Annual Meeting on October 22, 2013 and my team and I will be sure to keep you informed on the announcement.
More news and views to come in my blog next week where I will be sharing with you an insight in to our vertical offerings and the progress we are making.
