Fintech executive veteran joins Princeton Identity’s advisory board

October 20, 2017 - 

Princeton Identity has added Brian Russell to its advisory board.

Russell was recently senior vp of financial solutions for Giesecke+Devrient (G+D) Mobile Security U.S. Division, and will advise the Princeton Identity team on strategies in the fintech market to simplify identity management.

“We’re faced with a growing number of evolving security and authentication challenges, with the need to comply with necessary security regulation,” explained Brian Russell. “Princeton Identity has emerged as an authority in using biometrics to ease the pain of identity management. I’m eager to share my experiences from more than 25 years in the field to influence the company’s future strategic initiatives.”

Russell is an active member of the Federal Reserve Banks Mobile Payment Industry Workgroup (MPIW) and the Secure Payments Task Force and has served as the Chairman of the Board for the Secure Technology Alliance and was a member of their Executive Board for the past five years.

“Brian’s breadth of experience is an incredible asset to our team. He understands the critical need to make security more accurate, reliable, and convenient, and has a strong reputation for driving brand visibility, market position, and revenue growth,” said Mark Clifton, CEO and president of Princeton Identity.

In September, Princeton Identity appointed security industry veteran Bob McKee as vp of sales and marketing.
