The Board of Biometrica Systems recently announced that board member Wyly Wade will lead the company’s multi-sector domestic and international expansion as its new chief executive officer & president.
“This is an exciting time for Biometrica,” said Kawaljit “Tony” Singh, the chairman of the Biometrica board. “We already protect roughly 45% of U.S. casino revenue through our range of products. During this time, as we go from being only casino-focused to moving into the hospitality and retail sectors, and look to expand our presence from five countries to many more, it makes perfect sense to have Wyly lead that process of growth given his multifaceted background in cybersecurity, biometrics and identification, and his work with different governments, intelligence agencies, and the private sector.”
According to a statement by the company, Wade, who has advised Biometrica on strategy and direction for two years, has worked with both private security groups and government agencies in multiple countries, including the United States, Japan, Brazil, Columbia, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Haiti, Rwanda, Mexico, Maldives, Tajikistan, Nepal, Afghanistan, Germany, and Ghana, on biometrics, benefit delivery, identification and security issues. He was also part of the founding core team at the Unique Identification Authority of India, which built Aadhaar, a project that, with more than 1 billion people enrolled, is now the world’s largest biometric program.
“Biometrica is a company on the cusp of changing how the world recognizes and identifies threats, tracks patterns that lead to crime, and people that commit criminal events, from thieves to traffickers to terrorists. I’m looking forward to leading the company as we grow into becoming a global leader in the security and surveillance sector across industries and regions,” said Wade.
