Kaspersky announces new leadership team

Kaspersky has announced a batch of leadership changes, to follow February's appointment of Peter Brady's as general manager for Australia and New Zealand.

Reporting to Brady, who took on the leadership role this year after the departure of Andrew Mamonitis, is a team of eight professionals to help Kaspersky reach local partners.

Scott Kirkwood took on Brady's previous position and is now the retail channel sales manager for Australia, based in Melbourne.

Kirkwood had previously worked for Manaccom Software as sales manager for more than three years. He then joined Brother International where he was retail channel manager for more than seven years prior to joining Kaspersky May this year.

Rebecca Nguyen was promoted to the newly created role of ANZ enterprise sales manager. Nguyen has previously worked for WiseTech Global, VTech and Optus before joining the security vendor in 2012.

Chih-En Yeh, who was previously the channel sales manager, was also promoted and is now the territory channel manager, South Australia.

Samantha Gotting was hired as North Australia territory channel manager to replace Chris Kaza, who left in September 2015 to join marketing app developer Scatter.

Dania Jubain joined Kaspersky in February as the ANZ marketing manager and Noushin Shabab was announced as the first member of the global research and analysis team in ANZ.

The latest addition was Graeme McDonald, who joined Kaspersky last month as the territory channel manager for New Zealand.

Kaspersky is present in 200 countries, has a third of its global staff in research and development and has 400 million users. The vendor claims to detect 325,000 malicious files every day. Kaspersky was ranked number 32 on the 2016 Cybersecurity 500 list.
