Alcatraz appoints CEO for global biometrics expansion push, Veridium and Trulioo add IAM leaders
Alcatraz AI has shuffled its executive leadership team, with former Chief Revenue Officer Tina D’Agostin taking the chief executive role to spearhead the global expansion of its face biometrics technology for physical access control, and Founder and former CEO Vince Gaydarzhiev taking the role of chief product officer.
D’Agostin will focus on building the teams and operational foundation for hypergrowth of its edge-based facial recognition. D’Agostin previously served as general manager of building technology and solutions for Northern California at Johnson Controls.
Johnson Controls is one of several partners recently signed up by Alcatraz to integrate the company’s biometric flagship device, the Alcatraz Rock.
“Tina has a proven track record and acumen to bring together teams across the organization to achieve market growth, making her the perfect fit to steer Alcatraz to be the leading facial authentication platform in the U.S. and internationally, says Vince Gaydarzhiev, founder and now CPO of Alcatraz AI. “I will continue my role as President & Chief Product Officer to focus on product strategy and innovation to meet our current and future customer needs, establishing Alcatraz AI as the standard for autonomous access control. I’m excited to partner with Tina to lead Alcatraz to its next level of growth.”
