Precise Biometrics and LumenVox recruiting, Alcatraz, IDnow and Touch Biometrix announce appointments

Growth in the biometrics industry is prompting new appointments and recruiting campaigns. Alcatraz, IDnow and Touch Biometrix have announced new team members, while LumenVox and Precise Biometrics are now hiring.

Alcatraz has a new Chief Revenue Officer, appointing security industry leader Tina D’Agostin to accelerate its go-to-market strategy for its biometric facial authentication platform for physical access control, according to a company announcement.

D’Agostin will be responsible for sales, marketing and customer success for the company’s enterprise clients. She was most recently General Manager of Building Technology & Solutions for Northern California for Johnson Controls, and brings extensive experience in enterprise security and building technology.

“It’s exciting to be on the ground floor of such an innovative company like Alcatraz that’s truly disrupting the industry by delivering technology that will create a new category of autonomous access control,” says D’Agostin in the announcement. “I’m drawn to solutions that deliver intelligent buildings, integrated infrastructure, and next-generation access control systems that work seamlessly together to deliver on the promise of smart cities and buildings. Our Alcatraz Rock edge device, powered by AI, is a solution that delivers in these areas and in so much more.”

New IDnow COO

Bettina Pauck has been appointed chief operations officer at IDnow, according to a Linkedin post. Pauck hopes to apply her experience in customer operations to helping the company, having spent her last 12 years as a consultant.

The new Taiwan office is in the Hsinchu Wishun Centre, and will help the company liaise with supply chain partners, according to the announcement.
