We’re very proud today to announce that we’re expanding our footprint in the U.S. and opening a North American headquarters in Catonsville, Maryland, at the bwtech@UMBC Research and Technology Park. Read the full press release.
Our new office will serve a growing roster of North American customers, from initial contact through service deployment and support. Key executives joining iProov’s U.S. operations include Joe Palmer, President of iProov, Inc., and Simon Williamson, VP of Sales for iProov North America.
“Our new U.S. headquarters is perfectly situated,” commented iProov Founder and CEO Andrew Bud. “Not only will we enjoy close proximity to our government customers, but we will also be able to more easily leverage Maryland’s outstanding resources – in the form of nearby intellectual capital, tech talent, and the vibrant cybersecurity community associated with the bwtech@UMBC Technology Park. Our new location and new executive hires are setting the stage for iProov’s next phase of rapid growth, and we’re excited about the way forward.”
UK Secretary of State for International Trade, Liz Truss said: “Cybersecurity is a global issue. UK businesses are continuing to innovate, lead the sector and identify the solutions that will achieve global impact.
“iProov’s US expansion is evidence of the growing global demand for UK innovation. I’m delighted that my department has supported iProov’s scale-up as we work towards striking a trade deal with our partner across the pond.”
iProov in Maryland
Our decision to locate our U.S. headquarters in Maryland was influenced by the support of Governor Larry Hogan; “It is exciting news that iProov is establishing its U.S. headquarters in Maryland to become part of our thriving cybersecurity community. Our highly-educated workforce, proximity to many key federal agencies, and critical mass of innovative companies makes Maryland an outstanding location for global cyber companies looking to expand in the U.S. market. We are very excited that our outreach efforts resulted in attracting them here.”
Governor Hogan met with executives at iProov in 2017 during an economic development mission to the United Kingdom. As part of the mission, the Governor witnessed the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding, which established an exchange program with both U.K. and Maryland cyber companies to help them explore the market in each region. iProov’s decision to establish a presence in Maryland comes directly from this agreement.
