Skype names new chief financial officer

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Internet telephone service Skype said it named Jonathan Chadwick, a former McAfee financial executive, as its chief financial officer.

Chadwick replaces Adrian Dillon as CFO. Dillon has left the company, Skype said in a statement.

Prior to McAfee, Chadwick spent 13 years in various finance roles at Cisco Systems Inc (CSCO.O: Quote, Profile, Research), according to Skype’s website.

Intel Corp (INTC.O: Quote, Profile, Research) completed its acquisition of security software maker McAfee earlier this year.

Skype also said it hired Mark Gillett as chief development and operations officer.

Sources told Reuters in November that Skype would go public in 2011. The Wall Street Journal reported in January that Skype would hold off on an IPO until the second half of the year.
