Gillett Leaves Best Buy For Symantec

Mountain View, Calif. — Best Buy’s digital chief Stephen Gillett has left the retailer to join Symantec as COO.

Gillett, the former chief information officer for Starbucks, joined Best Buy in March as digital and global business services president, with responsibility for e-commerce and digital strategies. His appointment, under former CEO Brian Dunn, was designed to boost Best Buy’s multichannel capabilities amid growing competition from Amazon.com and other online-only retailers.

Best Buy said it has reassigned his duties to senior executives across the company, including chief administrative and chief financial officer Sharon McCollam, online and global e-commerce president Scott Durchslag, and U.S. retail senior VP Shawn Score.

At Symantec, where he has been a board member since January, Gillett’s initial responsibilities will include marketing, communications and IT functions. Additional responsibilities will be added in late January, when the online security company is expected to make a strategic announcement.
