Webroot Gets Help For Expansion Plans
Broomfield, Colorado-based Webroot is in the midst of a global expansion effort, and has tapped a former Symantec executive and named two VPs in that effort. Webroot said it has engaged Dieter Giesbrecht, formerly a Senior Vice President at Symantec Corporation, to help with global expansion and worldwide business development. Separately, the firm said it named Justin Santelices as Vice President of Worldwide Demand Fulfillment, and Justin Endres as Vice President of Worldwide Enterprise Sales and Operations. Giesbrecht spent eleven years as Symantec, most recently heading up that firm's worldwide sales operations and professional services. Santelices has been at Webroot since 2010, serving as VP of Worldwide Strategic Alliances. Endres joins Webroot from SolarWinds.
