Korn Ferry (NYSE: KFY) today announced that Lieutenant General (ret)
William C. Mayville, Jr, a leader in U.S. national security cyber
capabilities, former Director of Operations for the Chairman of the
Joint Chiefs and former Vice Commander, US Cyber Command, has joined the
firm in the Cyber Security Practice. In this role, LTG Mayville will
bring his vast, battle-tested experience to Korn Ferry’s global clients.

The prevalence and intensity of cyber-attacks have created substantial
security and financial risk to global organizations. The consequences
have never been more critical, and organizations are increasingly
looking to arm themselves with the right talent, leaders and expertise
to defend the front lines of cyber and information security.

“Cybersecurity isn’t just about understanding the threats and
vulnerabilities facing today’s increasingly interconnected global
network,” said LTG Mayville. “It’s about understanding the DNA of a
successful security and information officer – having the right people in
the right roles, with the right skills to deal with these reoccurring
issues. I’m excited to join Korn Ferry and work closely with the
technology, cyber, and digital practices.”

“Bill has significant senior leadership experience commanding troops at
every level including nearly five years of combat experience in Iraq and
Afghanistan in a myriad of key leadership positions,” said Michael
Franzino, President, Financial Services, Korn Ferry. “His relationships
are extensive, and he has deep industry expertise across information
technology, national security, and professional services. It’s an honor
to have him on board.”

Most recently, LTG Mayville served as the Vice Commander, US Cyber
Command, where he supervised the expansion of the nation’s newest
combatant command, the growth of a 6,200 cyber security workforce, and a
$230M research and acquisition enterprise to improve U.S. national
security cyber capabilities. Additionally, he directed contingency
planning for cyber security forces and oversaw cyber security operations
to safeguard DOD activities worldwide. LTG Mayville graduated from the
United States Military Academy in 1982, and served in the US Army for
thirty-six years, retiring as Lieutenant General. He has master’s
degrees from Georgia Tech and the Naval War College. He completed
Executive Development programs at Harvard’s JFK School of Government and
