Kaspersky Lab's Nancy Reynolds, who served as the security software vendor's senior vice president of corporate sales, has left the company.
Kaspersky confirmed Reynolds' departure but declined to comment further on the circumstances. Reynolds, who oversaw all enterprise and channel sales at Kaspersky, joined the company in January of 2010 after spending several years at Dell, most notably as head of Dell's enterprise channel.
A longtime channel veteran, Reynolds was recently named to CRN's 2012 Women of the Channel list of the most powerful female executives in the IT channel. Prior to her tenure at Dell, Reynolds served as vice president of global channel sales at Palo Alto Networks and vice president of North American channel and SMB sales at Trend Micro.
At Kaspersky, which is widely known for its anti-virus software, Reynolds was charged with propelling the vendor's push into the enterprise security market. In 2010, Kaspersky's enterprise sales jumped a whopping 115 percent in North America. And this year, Kaspersky took home the CRN Annual Report Card Award for Client Security Software, posting high scores in the product innovation, support and partnership categories.
Kaspersky has not yet named a replacement for Reynolds. Kaspersky channel chief Chris Doggett's position of vice president of North American channel sales has not changed, according to the company. Doggett joined Kaspersky last spring after serving several channel roles at Sophos and reported to Reynolds.
