Sophos Plc, the world leader in network-based anti-virus
solutions, continues its rapid growth with the appointment of Mark
Forrest as Sales and Marketing Director. Forrest joins Sophos from
Smallworld Systems, a leading vendor of Spatial Resource Planning
Software, at a time when Sophos's sales figures are soaring.
Forrest brings with him over seventeen years of industry
experience, much of it with Digital Equipment Corporation where he
rose to become Country Manager for Digital Middle East. He has a
proven track record of exceeding sales targets in all his previous
positions, more recently establishing Digital Gulf as a start-up
operation and successfully creating a platform for growth and
profit through Channel sales.
"Sophos has seen a record rise in sales this year during a
period of industry turmoil," said Mark Forrest. "Sophos Anti-Virus
is the product of choice for corporations around the world with its
first class virus detection rates and outstanding customer service.
It's exciting to be joining a company at the forefront of its
market with such a successful and dynamic team."
Forrest will be responsible for Worldwide Sales and Marketing
building on Sophos's strong market presence around the globe.
