Executive Shuffle

FireEye has seen some top-level executive changes in recent months, including the departure of CFO Michael Sheridan in July, and the poaching of EMEA Chief Technology Officer Greg Day and federal sales Vice President Nick Urick by Palo Alto Networks in September and October, respectively.

On the FireEye's earnings call last week, analysts asked if they should be worried about the recent changes.

DeWalt said FireEye is having "no trouble hiring" and believes it is upgrading its talent across the board with each new executive addition.
