Imperva appoints EMEA channels head

Cyber security services vendor Imperva has appointed Kirt Jorgenson as its vice president of EMEA channel sales.

Jorgenson (pictured) joined Imperva six years ago to develop and lead the global partner marketing team.

Most recently, he was responsible for the development and execution of the global channel reseller, distributor and MSSP (managed security service provider) programmes for the Imperva partner ecosystem.

Under his leadership, global partner-sourced revenue grew by double-digits, said the vendor. Some of that extra business came from Imperva Sonar, a security platform that combines protection across the edge, applications and data.

Prior to joining Imperva, Jorgenson spent three years leading channel programmes at Riverbed Technology. Before that, he was at Cisco for 14 years, where he led business development efforts in emerging markets and built programmes to support the company’s international network of managed service providers.

“Our experienced and loyal network of partners are invaluable, and under Kirt’s leadership we will continue to help them grow their businesses and take advantage of the market opportunity we all have,” said Spencer Young, regional vice president for EMEA at Imperva. “Our partners will benefit from Kirt’s deep understanding of our business globally and the strong relationships he already has with the EMEA channel community.”

Jorgenson said: “We have an incredible opportunity to help partners scale their business and provide customers with market-leading solutions that solve the most complex challenges in cyber security. The EMEA market is ripe with business potential, and I look forward to building deeper relationships with our established partner network to help them capitalise on the opportunity.”
