Kaspersky Lab has promoted Scott Macdonald to the role of ANZ business development manager in a bid to grow its partner base. He is the company's former Victorian corporate sales manager and southern region sales manager.
He will oversee the development of the corporate sales channel and raise the brand profile in the business to business sector, the company says.
He has more than 10 years' experience in relationship management and business development in the telco and sports industries, including stints with International Management Group, Siemens Australia and Hutchinson Telecoms. He was most recently the commercial partnerships manager for Melbourne Football Club.
“ANZ is a key market for Kaspersky Lab in Asia Pacific,” says Macdonald. “Businesses today are very concerned with the impact that applications have on their infrastructure resources. Applications which, for example, hog memory tend decrease the efficiency of the entire system, which is a problem, particularly for those businesses that require high availability and turnaround. I am very excited to join Kaspersky Lab at a time when customers are more than ever demanding cost-effective, efficient to solutions to their internet security problems."
