Cybersecurity firm McAfee announced the appointment of consumer tech veteran Greg Johnson as chief executive officer succeeding Peter Leav who will step down.
Greg Johnson’s appointment comes as part of McAfee’s dive into a pure-play consumer protection company, which began following the divestment of its enterprise security business in 2021.
Under Peter Leav’s leadership, McAfee was taken private by a consortium led by U.S. private equity firm Advent International in a $14 billion deal in November.
Greg Johnson previously served as Executive Vice President and General Manager of Intuit. At Intuit, he built a multi-billion-dollar consumer technology franchise, expanding Intuit’s Consumer Group from a singular product into a suite of consumer financial products to help empower millions of households to achieve financial freedom.
Prior to Intuit, Johnson built extensive consumer growth experience in leadership roles for iconic brands including Kraft, Kodak, Best Buy, Gillette, and Advanced Auto Parts. Johnson also currently serves on the Board of Directors at Qualcomm.
