Cloud security specialist Panda Security has reappointed Paul Chesterfield as its newest channel account manager to take charge of building relations with key reseller accounts in the UK.
Chesterfield, who previously worked with Panda for five years, rejoins the firm from Trend Micro, where he was DMR channel account manager.
The firm said that expansion of its channel team was a necessity to continue its current growth trajectory and meet channel targets. It recently unveiled its Panda Cloud Partner Centre, offering VARs access to a web console allowing full client ILM providing security as a service.
"The choice of moving back was simple, having seen Panda's cloud portfolio evolve has given me a renewed appreciation of the best way to work with the channel," said Chesterfield.
Panda UK and Ireland managing director Tony Lee added: "Paul has an impressive track record in the security industry and will be a great addition to our Uk team. Sales of our cloud range have gorwn significantly in the first half of 2011 and we have ambitious plans for growth."
