Intellicheck hires IdentityMind founder to lead digital ID product strategy as president
Intellicheck has appointed Garret Gafke as company president to lead its cloud-based digital ID authentication product strategy and build out its marketing capabilities.
Gafke is the founder and former president and CEO of digital ID orchestration company IdentityMind, prior to its acquisition by Acuant, and also served as president and CEO of regulatory compliance company SteelEye.
“I am excited to welcome Garrett to the Intellicheck team. Given the explosive opportunities in the identity theft and fraud space, bringing another accomplished identity professional to the management team is an important step forward,” states Intellicheck CEO Bryan Lewis. “In addition, Garrett’s focus on product strategy and marketing will allow me to continue to build upon the strategic vision that has driven the Company’s growth and expansion into new market verticals along with my focus on the day-to-day operations of the organization.”
Intellicheck formed a partnership with Ipsidy last year to integrate face biometrics and liveness detection with its Remote ID authentication software.
“I am thrilled to be a part of this fast-growing company that addresses the challenges around identity in a radically different manner and with greater certainty than any other company,” comments Gafke.
