Chattanooga, Tenn. (PRWEB) June 03, 2015
SIGNiX, a pioneer that provides Independent E-signature™ services, is excited to announce the hiring of Marc Straat, who has joined the company as vice president EMEA. Marc will lead SIGNiX’s expansion in this region.
SIGNiX has long been a partner-centric company focused on providing total solutions to software companies looking to add independently verifiable and standards-based electronic signatures to their service offerings. SIGNiX’s focus on partner needs has led to seamless integrations with providers in highly regulated industries with high-value transactions.
Straat joins SIGNiX from Adobe, where he held strategic alliance and partner development roles in various business areas and verticals as well as acting as Adobe’s EMEA head for PDF document and European electronic signature standards. Prior to Adobe, he was the EMEA director for wireless trust services for VeriSign (now Symantec). Straat earned a Master’s Degree in Economics from the Maastricht University, The Netherlands. He is a Dutch citizen, based in London.
Straat's selection and experience come as SIGNiX accelerates its growth in parallel with the advent of the European Union’s new legislation for electronic identities and trust services – eIDAS. SIGNiX’s independent e-signature services are well aligned with the European regulation’s principles of compliance, openness and independence.
“SIGNiX is rapidly growing as a partner-friendly vendor offering digital signature solutions within comprehensive document workflows and processes, focused on compliance with industry standards and regulations in different parts of the world,” said Jay Jumper, CEO of SIGNiX.“ Expanding our management team is part of a broader plan to expand geographically and to ensure our technology will be received well in key markets and verticals. Marc has a wealth of experience in Europe in addition to our area of technology. We feel he is uniquely suited to drive partner development in the region, supporting our ambitious growth plans.”
