Kaspersky Lab has appointed Naina Parhar as its head of channel sales for Asia-Pacific, replacing David Yue, who left in July last year.
Parhar will work on Kaspersky's distribution framework and its new telesales business, and is also tasked with rolling out the company’s new global partner program for Asia-Pacific.
”Kaspersky is an agile and innovative company and I am excited to join this dynamic team,” Parhar said.
“Partners have been the core of our business and will continue to be important to our ability to scale. I am looking forward to leading a part of the business that has so much opportunity.”
Parhar most recently served as director of Singapore-based Unibim Services. Prior to that, she held various sales roles in both Australia and Singapore, including stints with Autodesk and Microsoft.
“A great part of Kaspersky Lab’s market success is attributable to its strong channel and delivering more value to our partners is one of the company’s highest priorities,” Kaspersky Lab Asia-Pacific managing director Stephan Neumeier said.
“With Naina’s impressive track record in building alliances and insight of the APAC channel dynamics, having her onboard supports our steadfast commitment to step up our channel program in the region.”
“The ANZ region is delighted to kick start 2018 with our new an energetic addition, Naina,” Kaspersky Lab ANZ general manager Anastasia Rae said.
“She has a focus on Australian and New Zealand partner growth which is pivotal to our success.”
