Kaspersky Lab has appointed Andrew Mamonitis to the newly created position of country manager for Australia and New Zealand. Prior to his role, Mamonitis was sales director for the region.
Mamonitis' first goal is to continue growing the local business "aggressively" while the company looks to expand its partner ecosystem.
Mamonitis declined to give further details on the information security vendor's pending partner plans.
"We will continue our push in the consumer space while focusing on the corporate space - businesses with 10 or more customers," he told CRN.
"There was an effort to re-jig the product portfolio in the corporate space about 18 months ago. We've seen a strong start in Russia and Germany."
Mamonitis' appointment follows the promotion of Alexey Gromyko, who has worked extensively on the development of the company's business in the Asian markets, to another senior role with Kaspersky Lab in the Asia-Pacific region.
Harry Cheung, managing director of Kaspersky Lab APAC, said Kaspersky will expand its range of corporate solutions within the next few months.
