NortonLifeLock Announces Leadership Appointments, Board Changes

Jeff Brody

NortonLifeLock (Nasdaq: NLOK) has announced the appointment of key leaders following its launch as an independent publicly traded consumer cyber safety company as a result of Broadcom’s (Nasdaq: AVGO) $10.7B acquisition of Symantec’s enterprise security assets.

Vincent Pilette, a more than 20-year financial management executive, has been named CEO of NortonLifeLock, the company said Thursday.

Pilette previously served as chief financial officer at Symantec. He served in similar capacity at Logitech International and Electronics for Imaging and worked at Hewlett Packard Enterprise (NYSE: HPE) as vice president of finance at the firm’s server, storage and networking business.

Samir Kapuria, formerly executive VP and general manager of NortonLifeLock’s consumer business unit, will serve as president of the company. He joined Symantec in 2004 and held leadership roles, including head of the firm’s cybersecurity services business.

Matthew Brown, a more than 15-year financial executive, has been named interim chief financial officer. He is former VP and chief accounting officer of NortonLifeLock. He held leadership positions at Symantec, Blue Coat and NETGEAR.

With the appointment of Pilette, Richard Hill will step down Friday, Nov. 8, as interim president and CEO of Symantec, which now operates as NortonLifeLock.

The company announced that Hill, Dale Fuller, David Mahoney, Dan Schulman, Anita Sands and Suzanne Vautrinot will retire as members of NortonLifeLock’s board.

Pilette and Nora Denzel, an independent board candidate, will stand for election at NortonLifeLock’s annual stockholders’ meeting on Dec. 19.

Denzel is former interim CEO of Outerwall. She held executive management roles at Intuit (Nasdaq: INTU), HPE, Legato Systems and IBM (NYSE: IBM). She also sits on the boards of AMD, Ericsson and Talend (Nasdaq: TLND)
