Symantec CEO Firing Probably Won't Impact Clearwell
You may have heard that Symantec yesterday fired CEO Enrique Salem and replaced him with board chairman Steve Bennett as CEO and president, effective immediately. Chances are that won't have much impact on Clearwell.
Today I checked in with Symantec spokeswoman Hilary McQuaide and 451 Research e-discovery analyst David Horrigan. Both agreed that Clearwell will move forward with business as usual. The company's two major initiatives -- predictive coding and integration with Symantec data archiving products -- both remain on track as previously reported.
Clearwell is run by Symantec's Brian Dye, vice president, information intelligence group. Former Clearwell CEO Aaref Hilaly left March 30 and joined Sequoia Capital.
