6. McAfee Lays Off Global Channel Chief, Restructures Go-To-Market Engine
McAfee global channel chief Richard Steranka (pictured) left the company in July as part of a broader set of layoffs affecting the Santa Clara, Calif.-based organization, sources told CRN.
Steranka was one of between 12 and 15 McAfee executives let go, sources said. The layoffs impacted several people in McAfee's channel organization as well as a few people from other divisions, according to one source.
The following week, McAfee announced it was promoting consumer business leader John Giamatteo to president and chief revenue officer, where he's responsible for corporate sales, corporate marketing and customer success. The company said Giamatteo is expected to modernize McAfee's corporate go-to-market engine and improve the customer experience across all routes to market.
