Global security solutions vendor Secureworks has appointed Wendy K. Thomas to the role of President and Chief Executive Officer, replacing Michael R. Cote who has retired as CEO and as a member of the Secureworks Board of Directors.

Thomas, who most recently served as Secureworks President of Customer Success, joined the Secureworks Board of Directors in July 2021.

“Secureworks’ mission is to secure human progress, and I am honoured to serve that purpose on behalf of our employees, customers, partners, and shareholders,” said Thomas,

“We’re committed to providing the innovation and collaboration needed to beat the adversary on a global scale.”

Thomas first joined Secureworks in 2008 and has held leadership roles in Finance, Strategy, Product and Customer Success, helping execute strategic acquisitions that scaled the business and led to Secureworks’ initial public offering in 2016.

As Strategy Lead and Chief Product Officer, Thomas helped develop the vision for Secureworks’ future and fueled the team that built and launched the cloud-native Secureworks TaegisTM platform.

Most recently, Thomas served as President of Customer Success, where her team developed and adopted a customer-centric approach to helping organisations achieve better security outcomes.

Recently, Thomas was recognised in The Software Report’s “Top 25 Women Leaders in Cybersecurity of 2021.”
