Hila Meller now CRO at Fingerprint Cards

Hila Meller will be the first to serve as Chief Revenue Officer (CRO) at fingerprint biometrics provider Fingerprint Cards, effective January 1st, 2024. She will report to the company’s new CEO Adam Philpott.

“Hila’s extensive experience in leading sales organizations, in particular those focused on business-to-business, will be an invaluable asset to Fingerprints as we continue to focus on strengthening our market presence and growth,” says Philpott.

Two new regional CEOs and Group CEO role at ProofID

ID verification provider ProofID has created two new regional CRO roles and an additional group role to decentralize top management in response to the company’s recent growth and expansion.

The company recently acquired Regatta Solutions Group. It also saw an organic revenue growth of over 25 percent in the 2023 fiscal year.
