Fortinet has appointed Lizzie Cohen-Laloum as regional vice president for Southern Europe and head of the Carrier/MSSP Business Practice for the EMEA region. She will report to Yann Pradelle, the firm’s vice president Continental Europe.

Cohen-Laloum will work with the regional management team to spearhead the firm’s growth and market share expansion across the region.

“I’m delighted to have Cohen-Laloum on board. Her expertise in enterprise and telco carriers market segments as well as her strong industry knowledge will be key assets to help us strengthen Fortinet’s leadership position throughout EMEA and be seen as security advisor. I am confident she will help us achieve the growth targets we have set ourselves for 2018 and beyond,” said Pradelle.

Cohen-Laloum joins Fortinet from F5, where she spent 15 years and held a series of sales leadership roles, initially as sales director for Southern Europe and later senior vice president of sales for EMEA. Prior to F5, she worked at Nortel Networks for 10 years, as the international sales director, where she focused on integrating the company’s regionally developed enterprise telecommunication products into Nortel’s global channel sales engagement.

Cohen-Laloum said, “I’m very excited to be joining Fortinet, which I consider to be one of the most innovative global network security vendors on the market. My role is to build on this success to further increase our market share through enterprise focus and pursue the growth in the Carrier/MSSP segment by developing partnership with key players in that field. I’m convinced that Fortinet is on a strong success path and I’m looking forward to the challenges and opportunities ahead.”
