Several biometrics providers including FacePhi, Plurilock, Trulioo, iProov and Paravision have filled executive roles to help carry on with the companies’ respective market growth and revenue ambitions.

FacePhi to conquer new markets with VP Sales appointment

FacePhi has announced the appointment of Enrico Montagnino as its new vice president of Sales for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), as the digital identity and biometric authentication company plans to win new markets and consolidate its presence in the EMEA region, according to a press release.

The new appointee is a sales professional who boasts more than three decades of experience in international trade, and is said to have ample knowledge of the EMEA markets. He will lead a newly created sales team.

FacePhi says the appointment of Montagnino comes at a time when it is on full course to expand its market presence in new regions including the EMEA which is a region with huge market potential, the release mentions.

The president and CEO of FacePhi, Javier Mira, said: “The creation of this new sales team will accelerate the implementation of our technology in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Until now, we had agents who marketed our product in these areas, but the constitution of this team will allow us to go further and establish ourselves in these markets that have a great potential in terms of companies and users.”

Montagnino also expressed his feelings joining FacePhi: “Being part of FacePhi means joining a leading company in its sector that is in a moment of international growth. My challenge as VP Sales EMEA is to provide the company with a strong leadership in these regions, while helping our customers to control fraud and phishing, creating more secure processes with the best user experience.”

iProov processed more online verifications with its face biometrics over a 10-day period in 2021 than it did in all of 2020, according to the announcement. The company further plans to reach new clients and new geographical markets during 2022, and provide its biometric authentication for new use cases.

“iProov is a company with an ambitious and inspiring mission: to protect people’s identity online across the globe using biometric verification,” comments Traquina. “As we expand our reach and footprint, we must continue to optimize our technology offering for our customers and partners, while vigorously championing consumer privacy and security.”

Traquina brings experience in a similar role at Santander UK to the position at iProov.

Dawn Crew to bring new dawn to Trulioo’s marketing strategy
