Ipsidy reveals corporate management changes

Ipsidy is revamping its corporate organization though management changes to improve customer acquisition strategy and increase operation efficiency, the company announced.

Ipsidy has named security industry veteran Phillip Kumnick as Deputy Chairman, who was already part of the Ipsidy Board. With 30 years of experience under his belt, Kumnick’s professional achievements include Visa’s critical entry into encryption and tokenization products and services for their acquiring partners. The new role will bring Kumnick closer to the management team to work together in fulfilling the strategic plan.

“Since my appointment to the Ipsidy Board, I have been working closely with the Ipsidy leadership team and believe that the Company’s IDaaS platform has tremendous potential for delivering innovative identity solutions which are so desperately needed in today’s digital world,” said Kumnick. The changes announced today I believe will help Ipsidy realize that potential and I very much look forward to working with Philip and the Ipsidy leadership team to help them execute their plan.”

Other significant management changes include naming Tom Szoke as Chief Operating Officer with responsibility for operations, sales and business development, and Chris White will assume the role of Chief Technology Officer and will supervise technology, development and IT operations.

“This realignment will allow us to better leverage our strengths and approach the market faster,” said Philip Beck, Chairman and CEO Ipsidy Inc. “We are focusing our resources on the identity solutions we believe the marketplace is demanding, which we believe will drive growth in our business.”

Ipsidy and fleet management provider Skypatrol recently partnered to offer the SkyOne lock, which combines mobile biometric identity authentication with GPS technology.
