Semperis expands channel team
Cybersecurity leader Semperis (www.semperis.com) appoints Tobie Kottman as Channel Director for UK & Ireland. Working alongside Area Vice President of UK & Ireland, Daniel Lattimer, Kottman’s appointment follows the successful signing of several new partners in 2023 and will enable the delivery of comprehensive Active Directory (AD) security and recovery solutions to customers in the UK and Ireland regions.
Kottman will focus on growing and strengthening Semperis’ relationship with new partners to increase its reach of customers, as well as driving a targeted programme of business with key channel partners including resellers, systems integrators, and managed service providers.
Having worked in the identity security space since 2011, building programmes and channels across Northern Europe and the Middle East for vendors including SailPoint and CyberArk, Kottman has extensive experience in building channels from a standing start.
“In a world driven by cloud-forward IT environments, castle-and-moat strategies simply don’t work. Enterprises are now recognizing the need to evolve and modernize security practices by reducing security risks across their identity and access management estate – which, for 90% of businesses worldwide, uses Active Directory as the core identity service. This presents a huge opportunity for Semperis and I am delighted to be joining at an exciting stage in their journey,” says Tobie Kottman, Channel Director for UK and Ireland. “Together with our partners, I’m looking forward to delivering what enterprises need to protect their organisations from identity and access management-related risks.”
“Semperis is on a drive to increase sales and grow the business through our 100% channel partner strategy. We're excited to have Tobie on board to further strengthen our channel focus and our capacity to deliver. His experience and expertise will be instrumental in accelerating our growth and delivering a strong sales pipeline, bringing our hybrid identity protection solutions to even more enterprises in the UK & Ireland,” comments Daniel Lattimer, Area Vice President, UK & Ireland, Semperis.
