30 Notable IT Executive Moves: November 2020
November saw major executive shakeups at Symantec, AT&T, Virtana, DXC Technology and GDT, plus big new hires at Nvidia, Intel, Apple, Code42 and Open Systems.
Art Gilliland, the head of Broadcom’s Symantec unit, has departed the company after leading the cybersecurity vendor through its tumultuous $10.7 billion sale to Broadcom.
Gilliland’s second stint with Symantec began in November 2018, when the former Skyport Systems CEO joined to oversee the enterprise division’s product and engineering teams. Once the Broadcom deal closed in November 2019, Gilliland became Symantec’s senior vice president and general manager, where he oversaw the development, delivery and support of all security products and services.
In his place, Rob Greer, Adam Bromwich and Clayton Donley will lead Symantec’s Network and Information Security, Endpoint Security and Identity Security divisions, respectively. Bromwich has been with Symantec since 2003, while Greer joined Symantec from Forescout in June 2019 and Donley came to Broadcom through its 2018 acquisition of CA Technologies, where he oversaw the security practice.
