Lisa Loe, McAfee’s vice president of North American channels, has left the security vendor after just three months.
McAfee just confirmed this afternoon that Loe is no longer with the company. McAfee hired Loe in September; she had previously spent nine years as Symantec’s senior director of strategic partner sales, but she left in April after corporate restructuring affected her job.
Just last month, McAfee president and CEO Dave Dewalt told CRN that Loe’s hiring was part of a concerted effort to show that McAfee would be 100% dedicated to the channel. And last week, McAfee channel chief Roger King said this year’s executive shuffling at Symantec — including the departure of channel chief Julie Parrish — was a boon for his company and its partners.
Looks like King, who will oversee McAfee’s North American channel for now, will now have to deal with some of those same issues.
