For the past 10 years, Birch has been actively involved in bringing together identity and payments and wrote the book ‘Identity is the New Money,’ which discusses the link connection between national ID schemes, financial inclusion and payments.
“I was flattered to be asked and delighted to be able to accept the invitation to join the AU10TIX Advisory board at this exciting phase of the company’s journey,” said Birch in a prepared statement. “AU10TIX has established itself as a global leader and is distinguishing itself through its advanced machine learning technology, its continuing talent acquisition and its unmatched customer base. I am excited to be working with Ron, Carey and the rest of the management team.”
