Andrew Avanessian

Andrew is a dynamic and highly motivated self-starter with an innate ability to focus on results. With a wealth of experience in technology, Andrew has honed the rare ability to balance commercial acumen with a deep technical understanding. Being an experienced executive, he has been instrumental in developing strategic focus, operational management and leadership teams. This has helped his previous employer, Avecto, to achieve rapid growth culminating in a $50 million private equity investment and a $169 million exit. He joined Avecto shortly after its inception (4th employee) when it was in start-up mode, during which time he spearheaded the company’s growth into a mature and globally recognised brand, whilst still maintaining its entrepreneurial edge.

Andrew has a wealth of experience in building global client facing teams (sales, pre-sales, post-sales, support, customer success and I.T) and used this experience to establish and mature Avecto’s go to market strategies and delivery services into world-class offerings. This helped Avecto earn numerous industry awards and raise its global profile. He regularly speaks at security events, as well as having appeared on news channels such as the BBC, Sky, Fox and CNBC.
