Cross Match names Michael Kohlsdorf interim CEO

December 9, 2013 - 

Cross Match has announced that its Board of Directors has named Michael Kohlsdorf as interim CEO.

According to the company, Kohlsdorf will take the helm at the company while Cross Match conducts a selection process to replace David Buckley, who is leaving “to pursue other interests.”

Kohlsdorf currently sits on Cross Match’s board, and is an operating partner with Francisco Partners, the private equity firm that acquired the company in 2012. He previously was CEO and a Board member of Aderant, a global software provider previously owned by Francisco Partners.

“Mike is a natural choice for interim CEO and will do an excellent job to ensure that the Company remains focused on its 2014 objectives,” Cross Match Board Chairman, Keith Geeslin said. “We appreciate David’s leadership as the business transitioned ownership, and now are focused on positioning Cross Match for strategic growth through continued innovation and solution development that meets the needs of our global customers.”

Reported previously, Cross Match recently donated biometric identity management software and hardware to the U.S. Naval Academy Foundation for the Academy’s Electrical and Computer Engineering Department. Specifically, the donation included Guardian Patrol ID ten-print fingerprint livescan and ISCAN II dual iris scan devices, EF200 dual fingerprint scanners, MOBS mission-oriented biometric software and Cross Match’s WEBS enrollment software
