Integrated Biometrics (“IB”) expanded its footprint in Africa and Middle East with the opening of its first office in the region located at South Africa. The move comes in response to rapidly growing global demand for IB’s lightweight, low-power FBI certified fingerprint scanners, which have become the world’s choice for mobile border control, national identity and election, healthcare, and financial services programs.
Jim Seaborn, founding partner for Integrated Biometrics has been named Vice President of Business Development for Africa and the Middle East. Jim will drive demand in both territories and respond to the growing need for mobile biometric enrollment and identification in the region’s financial services, healthcare, law enforcement and government sectors. In addition, Jim has appointed Robert Jones as Sales Manager for the Africa region. Robert, who will take on sales and outreach activities across Africa, has deep experience in the continent’s burgeoning biometric market.
“The global need for identity management continues to soar,” said David Gerulski, IB Executive Vice President. “Jim and Robert will help our regional partners address the growing popularity for IB’s products while maintaining the highest levels of support our customers demand and deserve. They are key to helping partners continue to develop amazing, innovative solutions to provide identity and improve security and everyday life for people throughout Africa and the Middle East.”
