Laurence Pitt

phy 2EMEA Director Information Security Strategy, Symantec

 

Laurence is the EMEA Director Information Security Strategy at Symantec, responsible for overall strategy and Go-To-Market across EMEA. Previous to this he was Product Management Director for Managed Security with NTT Com Security, and End-User computing at Novell.

He has worked in Information Technology since building his first kit-computer at age 11. Since leaving formal education he has worked in multiple roles from programming thru consulting and eventually into Product Marketing/Management. These roles, working for Siemens, Novell, NTT and now Symantec, have also provided him opportunity to travel extensively and gain understanding of cultural and industry differences around the world.

When not working Laurence will mostly be found with his head under the bonnet of a 1960's Mini which he has restored, or taking long walks to try and work out why how to explain the next bill for fixing the mini! He is a family man with a very tolerant wife and three children.

Today Laurence is the EMEA Director for Information Security Strategy at Symantec, running a team responsible for delivery of Go To Market strategy across the region.
