LONDON, UK., October 11, 2010 - Acronis, a leading provider of easy-to-use backup, recovery and security solutions for physical, virtual and cloud environments, today announced it has opened a new UK office and added a number of new recruits.

The company has added eight people to its UK operations over the past six months to support its customers and channel partners. Jan Jivmark joins the company as regional marketing manager for the region, having previously held positions at Novell and Sophos. In addition, Ivana Martin joins from GFI Software as Channel Marketing Manager, while Richard Cook has been brought onboard from distributor Koch Media to head up Acronis' retail business.

Acronis moved to a new UK office as a result of its growth and to accommodate the new expanded team which it has recruited. The former mayor of Hounslow opened the new office to celebrate the business' success.

"I joined Acronis just over a year ago and the UK business has achieved substantial success within that year. I now believe that we have the right team in place to provide our channel partners and customers with the best resources in terms of technical information, channel development and multi award-winning technology," explains David Blackman, general manager Northern Europe at Acronis.
