Fortinet Adds Retired Navy Officer James Stavridis to Board

James Stavridis, a 37-year U.S. Navy veteran, has joined the board of directors at Sunnyvale, California-based cybersecurity company Fortinet (Nasdaq: FTNT).

The retired admiral works for The Carlyle Group as a managing director and vice chairman of the investment firm’s global affairs and chairs the board of trustees at the Rockefeller Foundation, Fortinet said Tuesday.

Stavridis noted that Fortinet’s commitment to innovate products aligns with his experience and interest in the cybersecurity field.

His military career included roles as the NATO’s 16th Supreme Allied Commander, head of U.S. Southern Command and senior military assistant to the defense secretary.

He holds a Ph.D. degree in international relations from Tufts University, where he also served as a dean of The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy for five years.
