Kaspersky Lab recently announced the appointment of Peter Hewett to the position of Managing Director of Kaspersky Lab Asia Pacific. In his new role, Hewett will be responsible for the company's overall business operations in the Asia Pacific region, including sales, marketing and business development functions.

He will bring a range of expertise in development of regional business strategies to the role, and is helping to build on the company’s continued success in what is arguably the world’s most dynamic region, Asia Pacific. He will be based in Singapore.

With 23 years of experience working in sales channels in both vendor and distributor environments, Hewett comes to Kaspersky Lab with a strong commercial understanding of business and consumer-oriented IT security solutions, and will helping lead Kaspersky Lab’s channel-driven strategy across the APAC region.

Hewett started his career in information security when he joined Sophos in 2004. He held various technical, sales and senior management positions in that company. He joined Kaspersky Lab after serving as Sales Director for Australia with the Westcon Group.

He is taking over the managing director's position from Harry Cheung who retired after holding the position since 2008.

"I am glad to have the opportunity to join Kaspersky Lab and I'm excited to take on this role in this fast-growing region I'm very familiar with. I believe the Asia Pacific team has taken great strides to establish the market-leading position that Kaspersky Lab now enjoys in the region. I look forward to leveraging my technical and business management expertise as I work with the entire APAC team to further reinforce this position and reach greater heights in driving business growth," said Peter Hewett, Managing Director, Kaspersky Lab Asia Pacific.

"The ongoing economic boom in Asia has made the APAC region a market that is both fast growing and very challenging. We are prepared for this, offering a comprehensive line of fully-fledged security solutions backed up by a strong regional team that is now enhanced by Peter Hewett’s leadership. I truly believe that Peter will use his vast experience to take advantage of future market opportunities and lead our APAC business operations to a prominent position,” said Garry Kondakov, Chief Business Officer, Kaspersky Lab.
