All change at the top for ESET

Posted by   Virus Bulletin on   Jan 14, 2011

VB regulars Richard Marko and Andrew Lee appointed to top management roles.

Congratulations are due to Richard Marko and Andrew Lee as they take up new positions within ESET.

The company announced earlier this week that its owners Miroslav Trnka, Rudolf Hrubý, Maros Grund and Anton Zajac will be stepping down from the day-to-day running of the business, handing the baton on to Richard Marko - a co-owner and previously the company's Chief Technological Officer - who now takes up the position of ESET CEO.

Meanwhile, Andrew Lee returns to the company to take up the position of CEO of ESET North America. Andrew held the position of technology research director at ESET North America until 2008 and returns to the company after a two-year period working at the Indian-based K7 Computing.

VB is delighted to see two such strong technical people appointed to these roles and awaits ESET's future development with interest.
