European growth looms large with Gert-Jan Schenk on-board as VP of EMEA

It’s been more than three years now since Lookout opened its doors in Europe. The team counts tremendous success, including building EMEA into the largest market for Lookout outside of North America and developing partnerships with major carriers including Deutsche Telekom, Orange, and EE. Now, it’s time to dig our heels in even more as we welcome Gert-Jan Schenck as VP of EMEA.

 

Gert-JanGert-Jan will help Lookout to extend both consumer and enterprise business across the region. He’s got excellent experience in doing just that—Gert-Jan joins us from Intel Security (formerly McAfee), where as EMEA President he led the business to become the company’s highest performing region.

When asked what drew him to Lookout, Gert-Jan says it all comes down to Lookout’s intersection of data, mobility, cloud and security: “The only way to get ahead of the bad actors and deal with the scale, complexity and intelligence of threats, particularly those on mobile, is to predict attacks before they do harm. Lookout’s approach to predictive security, combined with the company’s heritage and strength in the consumer market, gives me the confidence that Lookout is uniquely positioned to fundamentally change the mobile security game.”
