martinwolf Executive Perspective

Rich Fennessy, CEO, FishNet Security


In November's issue of Executive Perspective, we bring you the inside perspective on one of the year's most significant transactions. 
Rich Fennessy

Our interview features Rich Fennessy, CEO of FishNet Security. Since he joined FishNet in the fourth quarter of 2013, the company has enjoyed significant growth in revenue, profitability and overall market share. Two weeks ago, it announced that it would be merging with Accuvant to create a new $1.5 billion security solutions provider.

Rich provides detailed commentary on both the reasoning behind the transaction and some of the broader market trends facing the IT Security space. The interview addresses how the merger creates new opportunities for the combined company that were not available for FishNet and Accuvant as separate entities, the role of private equity in facilitating the merger and how M&A will continue to shape the combined company going forward.
