Sophos has announced two new appointments to its sales team. Sophos has promoted Erin Malone to senior vice president of sales for Americas. Kevin Isaac has joined Sophos as senior vice president of sales for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
Sophos chief revenue officer Michael Valentine said: “Malone and Isaac are strategic additions to the Sophos senior leadership team, and their decades of expertise will be pivotal in helping partners evolve their security strategies to defend against today’s persistent attackers.”
He said that there is a “tremendous opportunity” for partners worldwide to user Sophos’ next-generation cybersecurity solutions and managed threat hunting and response services to protect their customers as they adapt to the constantly changing threat landscape and needs of remote and onsite workers. Both Erin and Kevin recognise this and are dedicated to supporting partners in their respective regions.
Valentine said that Isaac bought more than 25 years of cybersecurity sales leadership to Sophos, and most recently served as chief revenue officer at Forcepoint. He is based in the UK.
“We are thrilled Isaac has joined Sophos to expand our already strong growth path in the EMEA market. He is a well-respected international sales executive within cybersecurity, and his wealth of experience will benefit partners and customers as Sophos continues to innovate and lead the industry”, said Valentine.
Malone is a sales executive with more than 20 years’ experience leading sales teams and developing strategic partner relationships in the cybersecurity industry. She has risen the ranks at Sophos following a successful position as vice president of sales for North America, where she created and led Sophos’ Partner Advisory Council (PAC). She joined Sophos in 2015, and is based in the US.
“Malone has already made great impact on our Americas region, is well-respected in the industry, and has strong relationships within the Sophos partner community. We are excited for Sophos’ future under Erin’s executive leadership”, enthused Valentine.
