Gothenburg, 7 January 2013
Cryptzone, the European IT security and threat mitigation specialist, today
announced the arrival of Yves Delongie as its new Vice President Europe. Yves
brings to this role 20 years' technical and commercial experience in ICT
innovation and an extremely successful history of leading sales, business
development, marketing, support and product teams across EMEA.
With previous roles in a wide range of ICT vendors, including Nivis, Amplidata,
TrustAlert, DigitalPersona, Internet Security Systems (acquired by IBM in 2006)
and Vasco Data Security, he has consistently demonstrated his skills in opening
up new markets across international boundaries, delivering revenue growth and
ultimately increasing shareholder value.
After successfully graduating in applied economics/computer science and business
administration, Yves started his career as a C++ and OS programmer for real-time
embedded systems, quickly moving into project management then sales and
eventually managing overall field operations and P&L. His solid technical
grounding, combined with his innate flair for business and operational
excellence provides the perfect combination of skills to equip him in the
delivery of Cryptzone's projected revenue targets for 2013.
Yves is driven by his passion for technology and envisages Cryptzone's data-
centric security solutions becoming truly relevant in a world that is moving
away from the concept of safe perimeter toward the cloud and end-users consume
information using personal rather than corporate devices. He is looking forward
to making an ambitious impact in the market. He comments "I plan to make
Cryptzone one of the most relevant security companies of the decade and I am
convinced we can achieve this."
Einar Lindquist, CEO at Cryptzone, delighted by the appointment, says "Yves
proved himself a highly exceptional candidate for this role. He comes highly
commended by industry experts. I am confident he is the right man to lead the
region and achieve our 2013 revenue goals."
