McAfee Product strategy and execution head, Ashish Kulkarni to step down
After spearheading product strategy and execution in the company’s enterprise business group for more than two years, Ashish Kulkarni will resign his leadership post at McAfee
The Santa Clara, Calif.-based platform security vendor said Kulkarni notified McAfee Wednesday of his decision to resign from the company effective Jan. 1, with McAfee disclosing Kulkarni’s resignation after the market closed on Friday. Shishir Singh, who currently oversees the company’s web protection, data protection, CASB and network security products, will replace Kulkarni on an interim basis by.
In October 2014, Singh on joining the organization was tasked with running the company’s network security business unit for nearly three years until assuming responsibility for the company’s unified cloud security solutions in April 2017.
He holds the current title at McAfee as senior vice president of engineering. Former McAfee CEO Chris Young lured Kulkarni to the company in October 2018 from Akamai, where Kulkarni spent more than three years supervising the web performance and web security practices.
Kulkarni has been one of just five named executive officers (NEOs) for the entirety of his time at the company, and commanded total compensation of $4.8 million in 2018 and $5 million in 2019.
“Ashish [Kulkarni] has been a valued member of the executive team at McAfee,” the company quoted in an email. “The company will continue to build on the portfolio of enterprise solutions that have made McAfee the partner of choice for 86% of the Fortune 100. His departure will not impact the channel as it is led separately.”
