EMC sales chief jumps to McAfee CEO post

DeWalt drills new security role

Designing a Defense for Mobile Applications

EMC's top salesman Dave DeWalt has left the storage giant to saddle up as CEO and president of security firm McAfee

DeWalt joined EMC in 2003 when it bought his last CEO charge Documentum in 2003. After a management reshuffle last summer, some analysts put him in the race to succeed current EMC CEO Joe Tucci.

DeWalt's responsibilities as EMC's executive VP and president of customer operations and content management and archive fall to current vice chairman Bill Teuber.

DeWalt, 42, will take over from McAfee's interim boss Dale Fuller on April 2, who will serve as an advisor to begin with and then withdraw to his role on the board of directors.

EMC took the opportunity to rejig its senior sales squad, with Americas sales chief Bill Scannell promoted to executive VP of global sales programs, reporting to Teuber. Senior VPs Mike DeCesare and Balaji Yelamanchili were annointed co-general Managers for content management and archive, reporting directly to CEO Tucci.

EMC's announcement is here. McAfee's is here
