Wrote briefly yesterday about some management shifts over at McAfee. Last night, I had a chance to follow up with Alex Thurber, who has taken on a new role focused on mid-market business development after only nine months on the job.

Point of clarification: Thurber describes his new title (actually, his new title isn’t quite finalized, but you know what I mean) as an extension of his channel management duties. Indeed, he believes his insight into midmarket sales activities will help him reshape McAfee’s solutions for that customer segment. “I can’t imagine a deal that wouldn’t go through the channel in this space,” he said, when I chatted with him via phone.
The division in question covers all of the security vendor’s unnamed accounts: Thurber says this could be businesses of 20 people or so that have only recently switched from buying technology like a consumer into a different operational approach on up to companies with 2,500 to 5,000 employees.
Thurber’s new mission is to help McAfee and its partners accelerate sales in this space.
