Barracuda CEO Resigns

Barracuda confirms the resignation of CEO Dean Drako, effective Wednesday. Drako departs to pursue new opportunities.

Board of Directors member Gordon Stitt, Co-founder/CMO Michael Perone and CFO David Faugno will jointly share the management reins until a replacement is found.

“I met my goal of building Barracuda Networks from an idea to a highly profitable, high-recurring revenue company,” said Drako, in a prepared statement. “Barracuda now has the technology, user community, and growth ramp to be a thriving public company. I would like to thank Barracuda’s employees, partners and customers, who contribute daily to its success."
