Precise Biometrics has appointed Jeff Scott as its new Head of Sales for North America.
According to the company, Scott has a strong background within government and enterprise sales in the United States, as well as internationally.
Scott will replace Michael Harris, and the company expects to hire more sales resources in the United States in the near future.
Reported previously in BiometricUpdate.com, Precise Biometrics recently published its 2012 Annual Report, which showed net sales for the group amounted to US$4.36 million (SEK 28.3 million) at year end, and profit amounted to US$-7.24 million (SEK -47.0 million) after tax. In the same report, it’s reported that sales of Tactivo didn’t meet expectations last year, partly due to the lead time required to prepare a solution for market.
The Tactivo reader has also recently scooped up FIPS 201 certification from the U.S. Government, and upon news of the certification, the company’s stock jumped as much as 12 percent.
Showing a strong start to 2013, the company has boasted some impressive sales statistics for the period ending March 31, 2013, totaling US$2.53 million (SEK 16.8 million).
