WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – John McNulty, former chief executive officer at Secure Computing, is the new CEO at public safety software firm

Andrew “Flip” Filipowski is now InterAct’s executive chairman and will focus on the firm’s growth strategy, the firm announced Tuesday. The changes took effect immediately, InterAct said.

Filipowski, a serial investor and entrepreneur, led a $28 million investment round in venture-backed InterAct two years ago. He later took over as chairman and CEO.

InterAct shuffled its board in January, naming five new members.

McNulty was CEO at Secure Computing when it was bought by McAfee two years ago.

He has more than 40 years of experience in the tech industry, including a nine-year stint as the top officer at Secure Computing.

“John will be instrumental in ensuring InterAct’s continued rapid growth as a leader in the public safety software industry,” Filipowski said in a statement. “His experience in both public and private company mergers and acquisitions, as well as dealing with the demands of public company compliance, governance and managing investor and Wall Street relations will drive our organization forward and serve our growth strategy extremely well.”

InterAct has more than 2,000 customers worldwide. The company launched in 1975.
