Kaspersky Labs Names New Head of Channels
Security vendor Kaspersky Labs recently named Kristen Capone, a software industry veteran, to head its Green Team channel program in North America, giving further weight to its stated intention to pump up enterprise sales.
Capone's appointment comes on the heels of Kaspersky's well-publicized hiring of channel specialist Nancy Reynolds as senior vice president of corporate sales. Capone is tasked with managing all sales activity for resellers and distributors in the U.S. and Canada.
"Building upon the foundation of our award-winning Green Team Partner Program, we will keep our existing partnerships strong and drive our new partner expansion objectives for 2010 and beyond," she said.
Prior to joining Kaspersky, Capone directed Macromedia's channel sales program in North America.
