McAfee Corp. announced that Greg Johnson has been appointed Chief Executive Officer, effective June 13, 2022. Johnson succeeds Peter Leav, who will be stepping down as CEO.
Johnson's appointment comes as part of the Company's transition to a pure-play consumer protection company, which began following the divestment of McAfee's Enterprise security business in 2021. Johnson joins McAfee as a highly regarded consumer technology leader, previously serving as Executive Vice President and General Manager of Intuit. At Intuit, he built a world-renowned 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. With deep familiarity in various consumer business models, Johnson is positioned to further McAfee's leadership role in an ever-evolving, complex online world.
He is mission-driven, making him well suited to take on the challenge of helping consumers live their lives online freely and confidently with McAfee.
