Kaspersky appoints new territory manager for UK&I

Channel veteran Stuart Peters is tasked with expanding the cybersecurity provider’s presence in the region

Kaspersky has appointed Stuart Peters as its new territory manager for the UK and Ireland, as the cyber security provider looks to drive further growth and opportunities in the region.

Peters, who joined the business back in 2021, moves from his previous role of enterprise channel lead, where he managed Kaspersky’s channel partner strategy across global markets.

As territory manager for UK&I at the cyber security company, he'll now focus on growing regional business opportunities across targeted industries, including financial services, automotive and logistics.

For Kaspersky, the aim is to establish a stronger presence in the UK channel and recruit more partners and customers across the B2B portfolio.

With that in mind, the new UK&I lead will also look to strengthen existing relationships and partner support, as well as strike up new ones that will address industry-focused needs in the region – harnessing advanced cyber security planning solutions such as threat intelligence and incident response services.

“I’m excited to be taking on this role within such a fast-paced industry as Kaspersky continues to tackle cyber crime, wherever it might originate,” Peters said in an announcement. “The cornerstone of our local business strategy is to transform our leading security intelligence into real, tangible protection for those businesses looking for the safest, most secure solution from threats.

“We are fully committed to leverage our best-in-class intelligence, long-established expertise and a solid network of partners in the global fight against cyber crime, ensuring a safe cyber space for everyone.”

Prior to joining Kaspersky last year, Peters held various senior positions at LogPoint and IBM, where he was responsible for strategic partnerships and business development. He also previously served as Managing Director of EA-RS Group.

Morten Lehn, Kaspersky’s Managing Director for Northern Europe, said the channel veteran’s experience made him the ideal choice for his new role.

“Stuart’s performance as enterprise channel lead made him an obvious candidate to take the UK&I market forward,” he said. “As we keep on strengthening our channel network, I look forward to working closely with Stuart to grow our market share and deliver our solutions into the hands of more customers and partners across here in the UK and Ireland.”
