John Maynard

Chief Executive Officer

I joined Adarma in November 2020 having been impressed by the expertise of the Adarma team and the work to date supporting many of the largest FTSE 250 customers. I plan to build on the existing capability to support the business on its next phase of growth.

Prior to joining Adarma, I was Global Vice President for Security Specialists at Cisco, a $3bn security business with solutions spanning network, endpoint, cloud and application security. I am motivated by helping organisations in the information security space and my prior roles have been focused on helping build sales, engineering and consulting organisations, in strategy and product management and in operations. I was based in San Francisco for DXC Technology prior to Cisco with a dual role as Chief Operating Officer and VP of Product Management for Cybersecurity and had cybersecurity leadership positions for over 10 years at Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), including running the APJC security business based out of Singapore and acquiring Vistorm in the UK&I for HPE in 2008.

Outside of Adarma, my life is spent fully occupied with my four young children, on my Peloton, running the trails in Surrey or cheering on my favourite football team, Southampton FC.
