Former FPC CEO joins Zwipe’s Board of Directors

November 15, 2016 - 

Biometrics technology company Zwipe has announced the appointment of its newest board member, Jörgen Lantto.

Lantto commented on the appointment saying, “the decision to join Zwipe’s board is rooted in my belief of Zwipe’s technology allowing fingerprint recognition without batteries or fixed power supply. Seeing first-hand the commercial opportunities that exist for Zwipe in the biometrics market, I very much look forward to supporting the company through its next phase of development.”

Lantto was most recently the CEO of Fingerprint Cards AB (FPC). Prior to that he served as the company’s CTO and head of strategy and product management. During his tenure, FPC grew from a small company to one of the largest companies on the Stockholm Stock Exchange, taking a strong position in the global market.

“Zwipe is a biometric tech company that is focused on developing and commercializing secure, fast and easy to use biometric authentication solutions in three key areas; payments, access control and government ID. Jörgen led Fingerprint Cards during a period of strong growth as the company’s CEO. I expect that he will add experience, competence and energy to the Zwipe board and be a strong support to the management team going forward,” said Clas Thelin, chairman of the board of Zwipe, and adding “his expansive mindset and network within the industry will certainly bring value to Zwipe as it commercializes it core platform of products.”
