September 25, 2013 - 

NXT-ID has announced the appointment of Michael J. d’Almada-Remedios to its board of directors.

Remedios comes to the NXT-ID board with more than twenty years of experience in executive, product, technology and operations leadership as CTO, CIO and COO. He’s previously held positions at eBay/Shopping.com, Expedia/Hotels.com, Travelocity/Lastminute.com as well as Wells Fargo Bank.

“We are delighted to welcome Mike to the Board of NXT-ID,” Gino Pereira, CEO of NXT-ID said. “His extensive e-commerce and banking experience will be invaluable to the Company as we launch our mobile security products, including the Wocket. His experience is a terrific complement to the Government markets background that our current independent board member Major General David Gust (Ret.) provides. The majority of our Board now comprises independent Board Members.”

Remedios also recently joined software company Swarm-Mobile as COO and CTO.

“I’m delighted to join the NXT-ID Board at this exciting time of online, offline, mobile and social convergence,” Remedios said. “There are many emerging ‘omni-channel’ developments coming out of established and start-up companies. The technology of NXT-ID is perfectly positioned to be a “low friction” accelerator for partners and its own unique products such as the Wocket.”

Reported previously, NXT-ID’s subsidiary, 3D-ID has recently initiated a pilot program with the Palm Bay, FL Police Department to evaluate its 3D FaceMatch facial recognition identification system.

Last month, NXT-ID debuted on the OTCQB stock market under the symbol NXTD. The company went through an S1 self-registration and has received funding from Connecticut Innovations, the state’s quasi-public authority focused on growing local businesses.
