Timothy Sadler has been brought in to aid further growth for BioCatch by developing enterprise sales strategies for the company’s behavioral biometrics.
Sadler will now report to BioCatch Chief Revenue Officer Mike Keating, and oversee growth efforts across the company’s partner relationships and global advisory team.
“As we look to harness the demand for BioCatch’s unique behavioral-based approach to fighting fraud, we’re pleased to welcome a veteran sales leader like Tim to the BioCatch team,” commented Gadi Mazor, BioCatch’s recently appointed CEO.
The key hire comes weeks after BioCatch launched a new behavioral biometrics-based age analysis tool to protect the elderly from fraud.
“Fraud is a global problem and BioCatch’s cutting edge technology has been proven to reduce risk, identify fraudulent activity before it occurs through analyzing digital behavior, improving overall satisfaction for financial institutions,” Sadler said.
“The company is entering a new chapter of growth and I am excited for the opportunities working alongside our partners and global go-to-market team.”

“Scaling Fluent.ai’s marketing efforts to meet the demand we’re seeing for speech technology solutions is an exciting challenge,” he said.
Before joining Fluent.ai, Robillard worked as senior manager of Marketing and Digital Strategy for Crisis24.
Now, Fluent.ai’s new marketing director will support the company’s plans to become a leading provider of intuitive, offline embedded voice technology.
“I’ve joined an incredibly talented team and together we’re creating real value and opening doors to unbelievable new opportunities,” Robillard concluded.
