Security Vendor Fortinet Loses Key Sales Executive

Fortinet has lost one of its top sales leaders, just as the security vendor comes off months of sales challenges and fights to maintain its market share in the intensely competitive network security business.

Fortinet Senior Vice President of Sales Andy Travers, who was responsible for leading sales in the U.S. and Canada, left the company recently. The reason for his departure wasn’t immediately clear. He has been succeeded by Mike Bossert, who previously led U.S. sales for the central region, a Fortinet spokeswoman said.
