Having joined Kaspersky in 2013, Lehn started as sales director in charge of the company’s entire sales team for the B2B corporate and enterprise segment, B2C consumer and online sales in Italy. In his new role as Managing Director for Northern Europe, Lehn will focus efforts on growing regional business opportunities. In particular, this includes Kaspersky’s enterprise offerings and services, which comprise advanced cybersecurity planning solutions such as Threat Intelligence and Incident Response services.
With strong regional partnerships key to Kaspersky’s success across the globe, Lehn will also look to strengthen existing relationships and partner support, as well as forge new partnerships to best serve customers as cybersecurity needs and challenges continue to change in the region and beyond.
Commenting on his appointment, Morten Lehn said, “During my eight years at Kaspersky I have seen first-hand how we continually evolve our solutions and services, and successfully engage with partners and customers, to support their requirements. It is an exciting time to be at the helm in Northern Europe, as the region continues to adjust to new ways of working and new opportunities. With a strong team beside me we aim to continue our growth and success in the region.”
“Morten has always been one of our top performers, producing outstanding results and business growth year after year during his time leading the Italian team. His wealth of experience at Kaspersky and in the wider IT sector, combined with his drive and commitment to our partners and customers, perfectly supports our aim to build a safer world for everyone,” adds Chris Connell, Deputy VP Global Sales at Kaspersky.
Taking over the responsibility for Northern Europe is also a “back-to-the-roots” step for Morten Lehn who is born in Norway and started his successful management career for a Scandinavian IT distributor.
