EyeLock appoints Darlene Crumbaugh VP of Financial Services

July 23, 2013 - 

EyeLock has announced the appointment of Darlene Crumbaugh, as the company’s new Vice President of Financial Services.

According to the company, Crumbaugh’s appointment reinforces EyeLock’s focus on the financial services sector.

Crumbaugh comes to EyeLock with a background in marketing and sales focused on the financial services sector. In her new role, Crumbaugh will be responsible for managing the financial services vertical market, including sales, deployment as well as managing current programs and customer relationships.

“Darlene Crumbaugh has an extremely successful track record in the sales sector; for more than two decades she has set strategies to help businesses grow their bottom lines while maintaining strong relationships with customers.  She is a great addition to our team and a valuable asset to EyeLock as we continue to broaden our offering and expand our business globally, with a keen eye on the financial services sector,” Jim Demitrieus, EyeLock’s CEO said. “We look forward to leveraging Darlene’s expertise to continue to deploy throughout the financial services industry and broaden our customer base.”

Before EyeLock, Crumbaugh was sales director and global account manager at Nautilus Hyosung.

“It’s clear that the financial services sector is in desperate need for an overhaul – security breaches cost banks billions of dollars each year.  I believe that EyeLock’s iris-based authentication technology is the solution to many of the issues financial companies face today, including fraud,” Crumbaugh said. “I look forward to joining an organization that is influencing the way our identities are protected. Ultimately, this technology provides enormous value to the financial services sector and helps their customers by reducing the cost of fraud while assuring privacy concerns.”

Reported previously, EyeLock recently launched its iris recognition SDK for developers looking to integrate the company’s technology.
