Chris Connell

Vice President of Global Sales
Managing Director, APAC

Chris is responsible for the control of the company’s corporate and sales strategy execution, including sales framework development and implementation, sales pipeline planning and performance. A key component of Connell’s role is to ensure that all segments of Kaspersky’s businesses – SMB, Enterprise and Tangible – align with the business’ global sales strategy.

Connell joined Kaspersky as UK and Ireland General Manager in March 2019 and his role quickly expanded to cover the Nordic and Benelux regions, then promoted to oversee operations across the wider European market and also took on the role of Deputy VP, Global Sales. His fresh perspective on Kaspersky’s business has helped the company identify many new opportunities for development, and in January 2021 he assumed responsibility for Sales & Marketing in APAC as Managing Director alongside his deputy role.

With a positive business growth under his leadership, Chris was promoted once again in September 2021 to his current role, the Vice President of Global Sales.

Connell has more than 20 years' professional experience in sales and commercial leadership in various companies across many sectors, including Solution Selling, Consumer, B2B and Channel Sales. Prior to joining Kaspersky, Connell spent his career at companies such as Ingram Micro Europe and Australia, Tech Data and VIP Computers, working alongside brands such as Hewlett-Packard, Microsoft, Intel, IBM & Apple.
