FacePhi and Plurilock bring on experienced hands for advisory roles
While FacePhi has brought onboard security and new technologies veteran Joan Antonio Gómez Bule as a member of its advisory board, professional engineer Gaétan Hule is joining Plurilock as a senior advisor.
Announcing the development, FacePhi said Gómez Bule has extensive experience in issues of security and new technologies, having held leadership roles in several cybersecurity companies and membership in expert bodies. He is also a senior advisor to Financial Times and IE Business School joint venture Headspring, which designs and delivers personalized programs for leadership and education.

Gómez Bule has founded multiple telecommunications and security companies and his wealth of experience is seen as a plus for FacePhi. “For FacePhi it is an honor to have an adviser like Juan Antonio Gómez Bule, who brings so much experience in the sector and therefore will help the company meet its growth and international positioning objectives,” Javier Mira, FacePhi Chief Executive Officer said.
Plurilock appoints cybersecurity leader
Meanwhile, Plurilock says Gaétan Hule will bring “deep expertise” to his new senior advisory position, with his 35 years of experience in engineering and security leadership.
“Mr. Houle brings over 35 years of security experience to the table and is widely regarded as an expert in the field of cybersecurity. The knowledge that he’s gained over his career at some of the most prominent multinational organizations in the world will enhance our ability to align with large enterprises, critical infrastructure providers, and regulated industries-three of our most important target markets,” said Ian L. Paterson, Plurilock chief executive.
The press release indicated that Houle has manned a number of top security roles both in the Canadian government and in the private sector with multinational companies as chief security officer. He is credited with having fronted an initiative for the protection of information technology and telecommunication systems for the 2010 Winter Olympic games in Vancouver, Canada.
