BIO-key International has announced that Jim Skidmore has joined the company and has been appointed as the new Senior Vice President of Global Sales.
“Jim Skidmore brings a deep understanding of technology, security and channel development to BIO-key,” Mike DePasquale, BIO-key CEO said. “We’re extremely excited about incorporating Jim’s talents along with his ability to extend BIO-key’s partner footprint by leveraging his twenty plus years of existing business relationships, within the security industry. Most recently, as Vice President of Encode, a software and hardware reseller, Jim increased revenue from start-up to $7.5M in eighteen months and ultimately helped build a $20M business focused on identity and access management. We believe, based upon his leadership skills and industry knowledge that Jim can have a similar impact at BIO-key.”
Before coming to BIO-key, Skidmore was VP of the Solutions Group with Encode, and was also previously a regional vice president for Cotelligent.
Skidmore’s responsibilities at BIO-key include driving revenue, managing, expanding and the further development of the sales team with a primary focus in identity and access management and the healthcare market. He’ll also manage the BIO-key sales partner network.
Reported previously, BIO-key recently completed a $3.7 million private placement.
