Kaspersky Lab to Open New Office in London, UK

02 Sep 2013 - Kaspersky Lab will open a new office in central London in October 2013, which will serve as a European hub for employees and customers. The new office, close to Paddington Station in Central London, will provide space for more than 100 Kaspersky Lab UK employees, as well as UK-based European and global functions.

“UK growth and increased presence is a key focus for the business. The move to make the UK operation more prominent is testament to the importance the company places on the UK and European markets,” said Alexander Moiseev, Managing Director of Kaspersky Lab Europe.

Key changes to the UK and European management structure will further reinforce growth across the region. UK managing director, Malcolm Tuck, will move to a new European role as Director of Strategic Alliances, helping build trusted partnerships with systems integrators, outsourcers and other large Pan European partners, reporting to European managing director, Alexander Moiseev.

Kirill Slavin will join the UK team as managing director starting 2nd September. Prior to joining Kaspersky Lab, Kirill held several senior global positions in large organisations including PepsiCo Inc., Deloitte & Touche, and Rinaco Plus.

The scheduled date for the opening of the office is mid-October 2013 when the company will start to gradually move from its current premises to maintain business continuity. It is planned that the UK sales and marketing teams will be the first to move, followed by other teams and functions over the next two years.
