McAfee was founded in 1987, and at 32 years old, we’re moving faster than ever before with more precision, agility, and innovation. With McAfee’s expected growth in 2019 as the device-to-cloud cybersecurity company, we recognize the need to ensure that the Americas Channel Team is sharply focused. As I’ve met with members of my team, both individually and in planning sessions, we are already hitting the ground running. This year, the stage is set for our PACE—our pace within the company, and our People, Alignment, Culture, and Execution.
The first focus area, Our People, not only encompasses our team, but also our partners and customers. I truly believe if you take care of the people, the people will take care of you. As a Channel Organization, we ensure that both our partners’ and customers’ needs are met. Through tightly aligned cross-functional organizations internally, we are creating powerful unity as we serve customers together.
Our Alignment concentrates on making sure we’re moving in the same direction at the same time.
Within Our Culture, we have a primary and secondary culture. Our primary culture is centered around our pledge that each McAfee employee signs, declaring dedication to keeping the world safe from cyberthreats. However, the Channel Organization has also cultivated a secondary culture, which is supported by our corporate value surrounding candor and transparency. We aim for both cultures to be evident in everything we do.
With Our Execution, we believe that if we commit to something, we must execute it. Accountability is a priority for our team. Our Execution is currently centered around our MVISION portfolio family, which includes MVISION Endpoint, ePO, Cloud, Mobile, and EDR (coming soon). Designed to encompass our overall brand through a simple approach, MVISION is an integrated, open system from device to cloud that offers consolidated visibility, comprehension, and control across a digital landscape. If you’re not up to speed on MVISION, please take some time to research and get familiar. Our mutual customers are going to love it.
This year, we are excited to be working on our PACE. We are committed to maintaining a healthy PACE for the betterment of our customers, partners, and team. We hope the PACE we set this year will serve all who interact with McAfee.
