Bummer, Fortinet CMO Left

Holly Rollo was an awesome marketing executive that recently got hired by Fortinet (back in September) to be the Chief Marketing Executive. She was tasked with getting Fortinet’s shit together when it came to marketing. Marketing, is and has always been, the weak link in Fortinet’s structure which is understandable. The company is ran by engineers. These guys think the device should sell itself. Well, that is one of the main reasons Palo Alto has been able to grow so rapidly and it has forced Fortinet’s hand. Here comes Holly. I was really excited about this because I saw what she did while at FireEye.

Oh well, back to the drawing board for Fortinet when it comes to Marketing I suppose.
