NetIQ Corp. (Nasdaq: NTIQ), a leading provider of Systems & Security Management and Web Analytics solutions, today announced the transition of Greg Drew to general manager of its Web Analytics business unit, replacing Dan Meub, who is retiring. Drew, formerly senior vice president of web analytics marketing, sales and services, will report directly to Charles M. Boesenberg, chief executive officer and chairman.

As general manager, Greg Drew will be responsible for worldwide strategy and day-to-day operations of the Web Analytics business unit, including development of its WebTrends® solutions. In addition, Drew, who has more than 28 years of experience in fast growing high technology companies, will continue to focus on the unit’s strategic alliances and go-to-market strategy and accelerating expansion of the Web analytics market.

"I would like to thank Dan Meub for his leadership of the Web analytics business both in his early years as COO of WebTrends Corporation and then as GM of NetIQ's Web Analytics business unit.
