SLOUGH, United Kingdom--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Guidance Software, Inc. (NASDAQ:GUID), the World Leader in Digital Investigations™, today announced the appointment of Ken Yearwood as sales director for Northern Europe. Based in London, Mr. Yearwood will be responsible for managing sales, channel and business development in Northern Europe (UK, Ireland, and Scandinavia), as well as South Africa.
Mr. Yearwood has more than 20 years of experience in managing sales operations within the software and telecommunications industries, with a specific focus on data security, networking, storage and backup. Prior to taking on his new role, Mr. Yearwood was the regional sales director for Websense, and prior to that, he was the director of sales and marketing in Northern Europe at Proofpoint, Inc.
