Peter Brady has resigned from his role as general manager of Kaspersky in Australia and New Zealand, exiting the security vendor after five years.

Confirmed via an internal email to staff, Brady’s last day in the office will be 11 May.

“After five great years at Kaspersky Lab, I have tendered my resignation and [will be] taking a break," Brady wrote.

"It has been a successful and rewarding time here and I would like to thank each and everyone of you for all your help guidance and support over this time. I am sure I will be back out there looking for my next challenge."

A Kaspersky Lab spokesperson also confirmed the move, saying that "a new replacement, responsible for managing regional channel sales and the partner community, will join the company very soon" and that "there will be no disruption for company's business continuity".

Brady stepped into the A/NZ general manager role within Kaspersky Lab A/NZ following the departure of Andrew Mamonitis, who left the company for a director role at distributor, Hemisphere Technologies.

Then Kaspersky Lab marketing manager, Basem Abdo, also left Kaspersky Lab A/NZ for Hemisphere Technologies.

Hemisphere Technologies has since been superseded by a new company, Thousand Hands Technologies, which bought its assets after Hong Kong-based investor, Harry Cheung, came on as a new shareholder late last year.

Brady has been responsible for developing Kaspersky Lab’s strategic business plan for the A/NZ region, and building partnerships that steered the company towards continued growth in the enterprise arena.

He has had more than 22 years’ management experience in the IT industry, including four years as Kaspersky Lab A/NZ’s channel sales manager – a role he was in before being promoted to general manager.

Prior to Kaspersky Lab A/NZ, he was the national reseller channel manager for more than eight years at MYOB. He has also previously worked at PICA Australia and Dataflow.

"I have spent the last 22 years in management in the Australian IT industry.

“I have seen the market change in so many ways through the years, and I’ve had to adapt my business strategies accordingly. I want to use my intuition for seizing new opportunities,” Brady said in an interview with ARN previously.
