ArcSight, Inc. (NASD: ARST), a leading global provider of compliance and security management solutions that protect enterprises and government agencies, recently announced that Tom Reilly has been promoted to chief executive officer of ArcSight, Inc., effective October 1, 2008. Mr. Reilly will replace Robert Shaw, ArcSight chairman and chief executive officer since August 2001. Mr. Shaw will remain chairman of the board of directors.
Mr. Shaw commented on the announcement and stated, “Mr. Reilly has played an integral role in making ArcSight the success that it is today, and I look forward to working with him in this new capacity. One of the primary criteria we had when searching for a chief operating officer two years ago was whether the candidate could successfully lead ArcSight once I decided to step down, and I am even more confident today that Tom is the correct candidate.”
