According to the company, Bomba comes to Morpho Detection with more than a decade of executive experience leading Safran companies, and was most recently chairman and CEO of Labinal, Safran’s electrical wiring systems company.

As the new chief executive, Bomba succeeds Brad Ruswell, who will stay on with the company as Vice President, Business Development.

“Morpho Detection is a crucial strategic part of Morpho’s growth strategy and I am certain of Karen Bomba’s ability to lead and grow the company,” Philippe Petitcolin, Chairman and CEO of  Morpho said. “Morpho Detection’s current solutions and development pipeline have the ability to revolutionize the security screening process. Bomba’s experience leading the development of new products and worldwide growth of Safran-affiliated businesses makes her uniquely qualified to lead Morpho Detection.”

Reported previously, Morpho recently signed a partnership agreement with INTERPOL related to the supply of biometric solutions and other technical support.

Also, earlier this month, Morpho achieved Common Criteria certification for fingerprint spoof detection in a biometric device. Specifically, the company’s MorphoSmart Optic 301 fingerprint reader received the certification from German certification body BSI.
