We’re Opening a Europe Office!

We’re excited to announce that we’ve opened a European Office, based in Paris, France. The new European office will be led by Thibaut Behaghel, named General Manager. Join us in welcoming him aboard the LastPass Team!

With 60% of our user base today being international, the new European office is key in meeting the needs of our customers and keeping a pulse on international security trends. Thibaut’s wealth of experience, with a proven track record of expanding US technology products overseas, makes him a superb choice for heading up this new operation.

Thibaut Behaghel has experience within the European tech industry, most recently having co-founded WannaSpeak, focusing on online communications tools such as call tracking. Previously, Thibaut worked with Joe Siegrist and team at eStara after their acquisition of ITXC's eCommerce division, where he was manager of the European office.

From Thibaut himself:
“I’m excited to join a team whose founders have a track record of success, who’ve built great products with mass appeal. As a tech-savvy entrepreneur with grown children spread across multiple continents, I can attest first-hand to the power and value of the cloud. Globalization and emerging markets mean more to me than generic terms in the news; I’m thrilled to help LastPass strengthen its customer relations and develop new partnerships in Europe.”
We’re thrilled for the good things to come!
