“Adrian brings over two decades of experience in international companies and the local IT industry in APAC, where he successfully grew businesses, achieving outstanding results. We trust that his in-depth knowledge of both Asia-Pacific developed and emerging economies will help Kaspersky boost its business in the region, which is one of strategically important markets for the company. In his new role, Adrian will help Kaspersky identify new business opportunities and accelerate the B2B business momentum with a focus on the enterprise segment,” said Kirill Astrakhan, executive vice president for Corporate Business at Kaspersky.

Prior to joining Kaspersky, Hia was the senior regional vice president for ASEAN and Greater China Region at Zscaler.
