SAN RAMON, Calif.—Tiburon, a provider of public safety and security solutions based here, has named the company’s board chair, Jonathan Huberman, as interim president and CEO, according to a company statement. Huberman replaces Michael Bealmear, who has served Tiburon’s CEO since 2011.

Huberman currently serves as Tiburon’s board of directors chairman and is managing director at the Gores Group, Tiburon’s primary investor.

Prior to joining Gores, Huberman was president of the consumer and small business products division at EMC Corporation and was responsible for the company’s China growth initiatives, according to the statement. Before that, he was CEO of Iomega Corporation.

Commenting on the departure of Michael Bealmear, Huberman said in the release, “Michael agreed to join Tiburon 18 months ago for a 6 to 9 month stint to stabilize the company and put it in a position to perform. While it may have taken a little longer than he anticipated, Michael’s vision has paid off and we find ourselves poised for fantastic success in both the near and long term.”

Huberman added that the search for a new CEO is underway. In the interim, Tiburon’s senior leadership team will report to him and the organizational structure of the company will remain unchanged.
