FireEye Loses Top Marketing Executive
FireEye confirmed this week that Kara Wilson, the security vendor's chief marketing officer for nearly four years, has left the company and taken on a new job outside the security industry.
Wilson was instrumental in helping to take FireEye from a pre-IPO startup to a global security company, a company spokesman said. Vitor DeSouza, vice president of global communications, has filled her position in the interim, the company said.
Wilson's departure comes as FireEye looks to revamp the messaging around its security offerings. In the last year the company has worked to overhaul multiple areas of its business including its channel approach, product portfolio and profitability model.
