Former NetApp CMO Julie Parrish will join Check Point Software as the company’s new Chief Marketing Officer.

“(Julie) is a key addition to our executive team,” Check Point president Amnon Bar-Lev said. He added that Parrish will help the company focus on “delivering best-of-breed products” and growing Check Point’s brand awareness in the security space.

Julie_Parrish_Checkpoint_cropParrish, who also served as SVP for worldwide channels sales at NetApp, pointed to Check Point’s “20-year track record” of innovation and said she looked forward to having “the opportunity to extend Check Point’s lead in the market.”

Prior to her work at NetApp, Parrish held leadership positions in marketing and channels sales at a number of Fortune 1,000 companies including Symantec, Nokia, and 3Com. She is a graduate of Santa Clara University .

Check Point Software Technologies (NASDAQ: CHKP) specializes in providing online security solutions for both the enterprise and the consumer. With more than 3,400 employees, Check Point secures more than 100,000 businesses and “millions of users” around the world.

Founded in 1993 and headquartered in San Carlos, California, and Tel Aviv, Israel, Check Point Software Technologies made its Finovate debut at FinovateFall 2008.
