Sourcefire (FIRE) names director John Becker its new CEO, effective immediately. Until now, Becker had been the CEO of systems management software firm ScienceLogic; he'll remain a Sourcefire director. The appointment comes nearly 6 months after former CEO John C. Burris passed away due to colon cancer, shortly after retiring. Founder/CTO Martin Roesch, who has been serving as interim CEO, will go back to his prior role. Sourcefire also says it has appointed Kevin Klausmayer, who has been the CFO of multiple tech firms, to its board. (PR)
