Lynne Doherty McDonald

Executive Vice President, Global Sales and Marketing Enterprise at McAfee

Before joining cybersecurity giant McAfee less than a year ago, McDonald spent nearly 15 years at Cisco. “As an advocate for my clients, my team, and women in technology, I’m passionate about not only the creativity that drives disruption, but also accountability,” she said. “Do what you say you will do. I set high standards, but I don’t expect any more from others than what I expect from myself.” Now, McDonald leads global enterprise sales, pre-sales, and channel and marketing teams in one of the technology industry’s fastest growing markets. During the COVID-19 pandemic, McDonald wrote about the important role cybersecurity plays in 2020 and beyond. “As distance learning continues on for many across the world, academic institutions must stay focused on how to keep themselves, their students and their employees protected,” she wrote. “Having strong #cybersecurity from endpoint to the cloud has never been more important!”
