Jumio promotes Robert Prigge to president
Jumio has promoted chief revenue officer Robert Prigge to president where he expected to oversee all aspects of the company and guide the company through its next phase of innovation and growth. Prigge has been the CRO since 2016 and drove triple-digit growth during his tenure.
“Robert Prigge brings deep experience in the digital identity and cybersecurity space, and comes with excellent leadership skills and experience to take Jumio to its next phase of growth,” noted Jumio’s board of directors in a statement. “With his track record of success as the company’s chief revenue officer, we trust Robert to make additional investments in creativity, technology and talent to drive continued growth and enhance Jumio’s proposition to clients and its expanding partner base.”
Before joining Jumio, Prigge held various C-level and senior executive positions with a number of high-tech companies including IBM, Secure Computing, Sterling Commerce, Infrascale and Spruce Finance. Prigge led three companies to successful M&A exits, and has global experience building high-octane teams and sustainable operations, including nearly 15 years in Asia.
“The opportunity that lies ahead for Jumio is enormous, and the ability to lead this next chapter is deeply humbling and incredibly exhilarating,” Prigge commented. “I am focused on accelerating the innovation, especially in the areas of AI and biometrics, and execution that our customers need from us. Their success will continue to drive us.”
Jumio has experienced dramatic growth over the past two years. In 2018, its customer count grew 60 percent and sales grew 70 percent year-over-year. In February, the company was named to Fast Company’s 2019 list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies.
Robert succeeds Stephen Stuut, the company’s CEO of nearly four years. Stuut will now serve as co-chair of Jumio’s board of directors.
“I have had the privilege of leading Jumio through some difficult times and helping it become the global market leader in AI-powered identity verification as a service,” said Stuut. “I am excited about my next chapter with Jumio, and expect Robert’s vision and focus on strategy, partnerships and execution will ensure that Jumio’s next era is even more impactful than our last.”
