Leading pervasive network security solutions provider, ForeScout, has announced that three new executives have joined the company – Paul Phillips, senior vice president, corporate and business development; Laura Owen, vice president of human resources; and Darren Milliken, senior vice president, general counsel and corporate compliance officer.
Phillips will augment corporate and business development at ForeScout. Prior to joining ForeScout, he held senior management positions in the technology investment banking groups of Citigroup, Bank of America and Goldman Sachs. In his 20 plus year career in investment banking, he focused on the enterprise software sector and completed transactions for IBM, Microsoft, Checkpoint and Symantec, among others.
Owen will help develop all aspects of ForeScout’s global HR functions, including organisational strategic planning, building infrastructure and systems, recruiting and employee communications. A prior labour and employment attorney at Cooley LLP, Owen’s career spans more than 20 years of providing strategic and functional direction at leading technology companies such as Cisco, Spirent and Credence.
Milliken will build out legal capacity as general counsel and compliance officer for ForeScout. Previously, Milliken was with Accuray for 10 years and most recently served as its senior vice president and general counsel. During his 20-year career, Milliken also held senior management positions at Sanmina-SCI Corp and Voyan Technology and was in private practice at the law firm of Blakely Sokoloff Taylor & Zafman LLP.
