Today we’re excited to announce that HubSpot has appointed Christian Kinnear as Vice President and Managing Director, EMEA. Christian joined HubSpot Dublin in October 2015 as Director of Sales, where he was responsible for coordinating the company’s sales strategy across key regions. Quickly proving his ability to be a great cross-functional leader, Christian has served as HubSpot’s EMEA Managing Director for the last three years.


During his time at HubSpot, Christian has been an invaluable part of growing the Dublin office (fondly known as DubSpot) and HubSpot’s global business. As a testament to Christian’s commitment to growing a culture of flexibility, transparency, and autonomy, DubSpot was named a Best Workplace by Great Place to Work Ireland 2018. In addition, Christian’s leadership played an integral role in the growth that sparked the opening of two new office floors, as well as a 275-seat conference centre and events space. Beyond the growth of the Dublin office, Christian has successfully spearheaded the rapid growth of HubSpot’s products powering thousands of organizations across Europe with best-in-show sales, support, and services.

“Since day one, Christian has been an invaluable member of this company - not just in EMEA, but globally,” said Jeetu Mahtani, SVP and Managing Director, International at HubSpot. “From building an impressive business growth model in our Dublin office, expanding our reach in new markets, to helping to hire many of our regional and segment leaders, Christian has played a significant role in getting HubSpot to the global company it is today. We can’t wait to see what he achieves as Vice President and Managing Director.”

In this new role, Christian will continue to handle day-to-day operations driving collaboration across all functions as well as develop and implement programs that will be crucial for HubSpot’s global growth.
