Kaspersky Lab has parted ways with Nancy Reynolds, a longtime fixture in the security channel, after nearly three years as head of sales for the security software company.
Nancy Reynolds is no longer head of corporate sales at Kaspersky Lab’s Americas division, Channelnomics has learned.
Reynolds, who has served as senior vice president of corporate sales since January 2010, oversaw all enterprise and channel sales for Kaspersky throughout the Americas. She reported to Steve Orenberg, president of Kaspersky Americas.
No replacement has been named for Reynolds’ post. Channel sales and operations are likely unaffected by the transition, as that falls under Chris Doggett, who was named to the channel chief post last spring.
Departing with Reynolds is channel marketing director Jean Lozano, who joined Kaspersky last spring after serving in a similar position at Trend Micro Inc.
No reason was given for Reynolds and Lozano’s departure.
Reynolds is a longtime, recognized figure in the general and security channel communities. For many years, she served as channel sales director at Trend Micro. In 2007, she joined Palo Alto Networks as its first channel chief. Later, she moved to Dell, where she oversaw North America channel development.
While at Kaspersky, Reynolds was recognized for her channel leadership, most recently being named to CRN’s Most Powerful Women of the Channel list. Lozano was also named to the CRN list.
Kaspersky is embarking on an ambitious drive to build its global sales bookings to more than $1 billion by the end of 2014; that’s a $350 million growth target over 2011 bookings. Kaspersky is developing and releasing several new products to fuel growth. The Americas market and channel are considered critical for achieving this goal.
