The new office, headed by Kevin Krempulec, will provide business development and sales support for Kaspersky Lab’s products in the region.

Canada is crucial to Kaspersky Lab as it continues to build its North American channel. Kaspersky Lab’s solutions have already shown tremendous growth in the Canadian marketplace. The new, Toronto office, headed by Kevin Krempulec, Vice President, Sales, Canada, will be the central point of contact for all Canadian partners and customers.

Before joining Kaspersky Lab, Kevin worked as the vice president of sales and marketing at Net Integration Technologies, a developer and provider of Linux-based appliances. Prior to his work at Net Integration Technologies, Kevin held several senior level positions at Symantec. Kevin has also been recognized twice by Computer Dealer News as a “Top 25” Canadian IT Executive newsmaker. The appointment of an esteemed channel veteran such as Kevin to the position of vice president, sales, Canada, Kaspersky Lab, Americas, drives home Kaspersky Lab’s commitment to the Canadian channel partners and enterprises.

“Kaspersky Lab’s growth in North America during the last three years has been nothing short of remarkable,” says Steve Orenberg, President of Kaspersky Lab, Americas. “We’ve been listening to our customers and partners and the next logical step is opening a direct presence in Canada. This will enable Kaspersky to get that much closer to each of our Canadian customers and business partners to provide the level of support that we have made the hallmark of our company.”

“We have a tremendous and largely untapped opportunity here in Canada,” adds Kevin Krempulec. “With the amazing acceptance that Kaspersky has already received throughout the country, I am certain that we are positioned to do great things for both our business partners and our Canadian customers in the years ahead.”
