In his role with AVG, Anderson will lead all global legal matters including compliance and ethics; as well as be responsible for accelerating partner and business transactions, IP and partnership innovation.  Anderson will also lead AVG privacy initiatives world-wide.   He will work out of AVG Technologies' San Francisco office.
