Human Resources Director Europe search successfully completed on behalf of Kaspersky Lab

Kaspersky Lab, headquartered in Moscow, is the world’s largest privately-held cyber security company, yet retains a strong entrepreneurial company culture. Spectrum was retained by Kaspersky Lab to recruit a Human Resources Director, Europe.  The activity was led by Spectrum’s Managing Partner, Daniel Osmer.

The search strategy adopted a geographic focus on Germany and the UK, with the brief to search for HR Directors who were well-suited to operating in substantial global technology organisations of a highly entrepreneurial, culturally diverse, and fast-changing nature.

Louise Brunhoj was successfully appointed as Human Resources Director Europe, based at Kaspersky’s impressive new London offices in the Paddington Basin.  She reports to the Chief Human Resources Officer in Moscow.

Previously, Louise spent over six years at TradeDoubler, latterly as Human Resources Director. Louise began her career at Marriott.

Spectrum successfully conducted this search in collaboration with its international partner group Glasford International; a productive global collaboration which has also resulted in successful client assignments in London on behalf of Bank of America Merrill Lynch, listed German software company F24 AG, as well as a UK leadership team assessment programme at Ansell Healthcare.


Clients naturally do not want to limit themselves to the UK market when searching for their ideal candidate. This mandate demonstrates how Spectrum’s established international contacts and experience can add value in a typical multi-geography search.
