FireEye Names Tech Industry Veteran As New CFO

Cybersecurity firm FireEye announced yesterday (Sept. 8) some upcoming changes to its leadership roster.

Michael Berry, who has held a number of senior finance positions throughout the technology industry, will step into the senior vice president and chief financial officer role at FireEye starting on Sept. 21.

Prior to his appointment at FireEye, Berry served as executive vice president and chief financial officer at Informatica Corporation, an independent enterprise data integration software and services provider. In this role, Berry managed financial operations, investor relations, information technology and legal.

Berry has also held senior-level financial and operational positions at companies including IO, SolarWinds, and i2 Technologies.

“Mike has an extraordinary track record of financial management success with high-growth, publicly held companies in strategic segments of the technology industry,” FireEye CEO and Chairman David DeWalt said in a company statement.

“This experience and perspective will be invaluable as FireEye moves forward to extend its leadership in advanced threat protection with continued investments in innovation while driving long-term profitability.”

Berry’s appointment is just the latest in a number of personnel changes the company has made to “strengthen the FireEye management team.”

FireEye also announced Deepak Ahuja, Tesla’s first CFO, joined the FireEye board of directors. Prior to his position overseeing the financial operations at Tesla, Ahuja has 15 years of global automotive finance experience at Ford Motor Company.

“Deepak brings to our board insights he gained as Tesla established its presence as a disruptive force in the automotive world,” DeWalt added.

The appointment of both Berry and Ahuja are a product of the efforts FireEye is making towards the growth of its leadership team as the company embarks on expanding its footprint in the cybersecurity market, DeWalt confirmed.

Last month, the company brought on David Ramirez as its president of global government, and earlier this summer Grady Summers was named senior vice president and chief technology officer.

“These management additions come at an important stage in FireEye’s growth,” said DeWalt.

FireEye is well-positioned as the threat landscape continues to evolve, with accelerating growth, increasing market share, an expanding portfolio of products, new strategic partnerships and a strong financial position. We’re committed to strengthening our management team to help continue this momentum and bring our unmatched combination of cybersecurity technology, intelligence and expertise to more organizations worldwide.”
