FaceTec welcomes senior business development executive Richard Lobovsky as Senior Vice President of Business Development.

“We’re tremendously excited to have Rich joining us coming off of what has been an unprecedented year of technical achievements and user growth for FaceTec. A few months back, Steve Cook came aboard giving us a strong presence in the UK and Europe, and now we are adding Rich to give us a strong presence on the East Coast of the US,” said Kevin Alan Tussy, CEO of FaceTec. “We’re in the right place at the right time with the right technology, and now we’re building our business development team to match to our incredible dev team. For us, next year is about speeding up deployments and assembling the best possible team to take ZoOm® to the tens-of-thousands of organizations that need real biometric security. As we dive into 2019, Rich’s experience and knowledge of the biometrics industry will be key to our continued, rapid growth.”

Rich brings more than 25 years of experience in customer and channel partner development, portfolio analysis, business process re-engineering and implementing organizational change. He has driven product and services revenue growth in several key roles at Samsung SDSA, Verizon Enterprise Solutions and Qualcomm.

“FaceTec has made groundbreaking advancements in biometric security with ZoOm becoming the first - and still the only - biometric software ever to pass the ISO-guided Level 1 Anti-Spoofing certification test,” said Lobovsky. “And when I saw the fully developed cross-device technology, I knew that ZoOm could fundamentally change the way humans create trust. The user interface is intuitive, the SDKs are simple to implement and easy to manage, and the security is the strongest in the world. I’m really looking forward to leading the effort to take this technology to millions of new users in 2019.”
