WASHINGTON, D.C. — COO Enrique Salem said just now that Symantec may restructure its worldwide channel group and not replace outgoing vice president Julie Parrish.
He made the comment here at Partner Engage 2008, during a question-and-answer luncheon with the media. As Parrish prepares to leave for NetApp, Salem said he can now ask, “Is there a more efficient way to run the organization?”
“I’m not 100% sure that the best structure is to just do what we’ve been doing,” he said.
Salem said there is no timetable for deciding whether or not to name a new worldwide channel vice president. In the meantime, Symantec’s three regional channel vice presidents — including North American channel chief Randy Cochran — will take on added responsibilities.
