Touch Biometrix continues to grow, appoints Chief Innovation Officer


North Wales-based Touch Biometrix has appointed Rob Van Lier Chief Innovation Officer. Van Lier’s appointment follows the recruitment of Eric Derckx as Chief Technology Officer in June.

According to the announcement, Van Lier was developing thin film drive electronics for Amazon prior to joining Touch Biometrix. He has also held senior roles in product development and engineering development teams for Qualcomm MEMS Technologies and has worked in various system architecture and engineering roles for Philips Mobile Display Systems.

“We are delighted to have been able to recruit someone of Rob’s calibre,” said Touch Biometrix CEO Dr Mike Cowin. “Rob will play a key role for Touch Biometrix in enabling us to quickly realise our first minimum viable product.”

“I am delighted to be joining Mike and the rest of the Touch Biometrix team at such an exciting stage in the company’s development,” added Van Lier.

In July the fingerprint technology company announced it had been awarded funding from the Welsh government’s £63.4M SMARTCymru program which helps businesses in Wales develop new products, processes and services by supporting increased investment in research, development and innovation.
