MorphoTrak announced that Teresa Wu, Director of Strategic Marketing and Government Relations, has received the 2016 Women in Biometrics Award.
Ms. Wu and three additional recipients, Tovah LaDier, Elham Tabassi, and JoAnn Buscaglia, were presented with the awards at the Security Industry Association’s “Honors Night: Celebrating Performance, Partnerships and People in the Security Industry” on November 16, 2016.
Ms. Wu has spent her entire 15-year professional career in the biometrics industry.
