EXECUTIVE TO ROLE OF CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER
Austin, Texas – December 1, 2016
White Cloud Security is pleased to announce the promotion of Jim McLendon to the role of
Chief Operating Officer for White Cloud Security, Inc.
Jim McLendon, USAF Colonel (Retired), retired from a distinguished
career in physical, operational and cyber security that spanned 43 years
of leadership and accomplishments in both the military and corporate
world. In the USAF, Col. McLendon was the senior officer and
Commander of what is now known as NSA Texas. This was a diverse and
geographically distributed collection of organizations comprising more
than 2,100 highly technical IT and cybersecurity personnel charged with
the responsibility of protecting USAF networks. Following his military
service, Jim was hired by AXENT Technologies as VP of Operations where
he was responsible for the company’s computer security consulting
practices throughout North America. When Symantec acquired AXENT,
Jim became the VP of Managed Security Services and two years later was
promoted to VP of Global Business Development at Symantec.
At White Cloud Security, Jim initially served as the company’s Chief Business Development Officer.
His experience as Symantec’s VP of Global Business Development led to important reseller
engagements that resulted in the signing of resellers for White Cloud Security at home and abroad.
“Jim has proven experience managing large groups of IT and cybersecurity personnel in both the USAF
and in leading cybersecurity firms. He was a valuable addition to our executive team and this is the
next logical step for using his talents to turn White Cloud Security into a world class global leader of
cybersecurity solutions“, said Ziggy Shanklin, CEO and Founder of White Cloud Security, Inc.
