Enacomm appoints Chief Product Officer
Enacomm announced the appointment of Kenneth Arakelian as the fintech and voice biometric software provider’s Senior Vice President and Chief Product Officer last week.

Arakelian will also be in charge of expanding the company’s Virtual Personal Assistant (VPA) tool. Powered by artificial intelligence and integrating a Fraud Control Module, VPA can be used for conversational voice banking, as well as the development of chatbots and mobile voice bots.
“I’m eager to expand the reach of Enacomm’s advanced, interoperable technologies, multiplying the number of financial institution customers who will benefit from a user-friendly, secure banking experience,” he said, commenting on the news.
The executive has more than 20 years in the fintech industry and recently led the Innovations Group at Nuance Communications. Now, Arakelian will use his expertise to evolve voice biometrics applications in banking further.
“The fact that Enacomm already built a ‘digital gateway’ with open APIs that can talk to any core means the possibilities are endless,” he says. “I’m proud to be part of an organization that’s tech-forward and supports open banking.”
