Citrix Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:CTXS) today announced that its President
and Chief Executive Officer, Mark B. Templeton, will remain in his
current role and will not retire next year as previously announced. In
addition, as part of its ongoing commitment to evolve its board of
directors, Citrix announced the addition of Robert (Bob) M. Calderoni to
its board, effective immediately.
Citrix Chairman Thomas F. Bogan said, “Since January, the Board has been
working diligently with outside advisors to select our next CEO. During
the search, Mark informed us that, after much consideration, his desire
was to stay on as CEO. After completing our search process, and
considering a number of qualified candidates, the Board concluded that
Mark is the best leader to drive the Company forward at this time of
dynamic change in our business.”
“While Mark has made a multi-year commitment, CEO succession remains an
important focus for our Board and we will continue to manage for the
time when he steps down,” Bogan said.
Templeton said, “While I had planned to retire within the year following
my leave of absence, my personal circumstances have changed, and I am
more determined than ever to lead Citrix through its next wave of
transformation. Our core businesses have market-leading positions and
our early successes in mobile and cloud services put the Company at a
pivotal inflection point in its evolution. I deeply appreciate the
Board’s support for my continued leadership of the company at this
important time. There is much to be done, and my commitment to drive the
business forward is unwavering.”
Templeton joined Citrix in 1995 as Vice President of Marketing, prior to
its initial public offering. He was appointed President in 1998 and
Chief Executive Officer in 2001. During his tenure, Citrix has
transformed from a one-product, $15 million organization, to a global
leader with revenues of $2.9 billion in 2013. He has played a key role
in shaping Citrix’s culture, market direction, product strategy and
passion for customers. He holds a bachelor’s degree in product design
from North Carolina State University and an MBA from the University of
Virginia, Darden School of Business.

The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
