Kaspersky Continues to Strengthen Sales Team With New U.S. Sales Leader

Security Industry Heavyweight, Dan Burke, Selected as Vice President, U.S. Corporate Sales

WOBURN, MA--(Marketwire - March 9, 2010) - When Nancy Reynolds joined Kaspersky Lab Americas as Senior Vice President, Corporate Sales, in January she made a commitment to be better, faster and smarter by creating a strong sales and partner network and hiring the right talent to drive it forward. Acting on that commitment, Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of Internet threat management solutions that protect against all forms of malicious software, today announces the appointment of security industry veteran, Dan Burke, as vice president, U.S. corporate sales. 

As Vice President, U.S. Sales, Dan Burke is responsible for overseeing and directing Kaspersky Lab's field sales organization in the U.S. In this role, Dan will manage all field sales activity for the U.S. enterprise customers, working in conjunction with the company's 100% Channel commitment. Dan will be working closely with the company's technical support, marketing and channel sales teams to ensure that Kaspersky Lab customers continue to receive outstanding pre- and post-sales support and all the other resources necessary to help keep their businesses protected.

Dan comes to Kaspersky with nearly a decade of sales experience and an extensive background in security. Dan became highly recognized as an outstanding sales leader in the security industry during his tenure at Trend Micro, where he managed the company's enterprise sales team. In this position he successfully grew the region despite intense competitive pressures and a challenging economic environment. Before joining Kaspersky Lab, Dan established, managed and grew one of the premier security solutions VARs in the US, with regional headquarters in Ohio where he represented a dozen blue-chip security brands and established a reputation as a trusted security partner for security assessments, consulting and product delivery.
