Kerio Technologies is pleased to announce that Martin Kaiser has been promoted to director of marketing for the Central European region. Kaiser, based in Prague, is responsible for management of Kerio’s regional product and field marketing activities aimed at prospective and active channel partners (IT Solution Providers) and end customers. Kaiser will lead a regional team of four, and spearhead product marketing, partner lead generation, public relations, and management of Kerio’s distribution partners.
Prior to this new role, Kaiser was Kerio’s marketing manager for Russia and Poland while playing a supporting role in the Czech Republic. Under his direction, Kerio signed a partnership with Connect Distribution z.o.o., a specialized distributor of IT solutions in Poland, that furthered Kerio’s reach into the Polish SME market. Kaiser also expanded Kerio’s presence in Russia by adding a local marketing manager to the Moscow office.
Additionally, Kaiser led the successful global launch of Kerio Operator 1.1, the company’s award-winning IP PBX (voice) system.

With that in mind, Kerio entered the market with the mission of helping our partners grow their businesses, and to bring simplicity, security and functionality to the SME voice space.
