25 Blockbuster Channel Executive Moves of 2013


Kendra Krause

Sophos also named former Fortinet executive Kendra Krause to the role of vice president of North American channel sales in April. Krause previously served as vice president of channel sales and operations at Fortinet, where she spent more than five years. She also worked at SonicWall and WatchGuard Technologies in sales roles. Sophos' hiring of Valentine and Krause, as well as other ex-Fortinet employees, led to bad blood between the two companies, as Fortinet filed a lawsuit against Sophos last month over allegations of employee poaching.
