iProov, the leading provider of science-based facial biometric identity solutions, has announced the appointment of Leo Curran to the position of Vice President of Global Partnerships and Alliances as it seeks to significantly expand its partnership ecosystem and accelerate growth and innovation in the digital identity sector.

Leo joins iProov with an impressive track record of building and scaling technology companies in senior operational and go-to-market roles for high-growth companies such as Automation Anywhere and UiPath, and IT transformation and consulting services companies like TCS.  The focus on its partner-first approach by iProov follows the successful extension of its partner network in 2023 with the notable additions of Ping Identity, Cybernetica, Undercoverlab, Wultra, and Authsignal.

Online identity is a significant challenge in today’s digital world. With an ever-increasing reliance on digital platforms for many aspects of everyday life, reliably verifying the identity of individuals interacting online has become crucial. The rapid emergence of easily accessible, malicious generative artificial intelligence (AI) tools, namely deepfakes, has prompted the need for enhanced remote identity verification. Facial biometrics offers a highly secure and effective solution, particularly for high-risk domains like banking and government services.

“Our commitment to a partner-focused approach is based on the understanding that the best solutions require collaboration between numerous different technologies and companies.  Now is the time for such solutions to shine, and we are delighted to welcome Leo to the team,” said Andrew Bud, founder and CEO, iProov. “ By fostering a vibrant partner ecosystem, we will enable new possibilities, drive mutual success and shape the future of our industry.”

Commenting on his appointment, Leo said, “I’m hugely excited to join iProov at such a pivotal moment in the growth of the company. We seek like-minded partners across all industries who value collaboration. In return, we offer access to a rapidly expanding market, a close working relationship with our senior leadership team – thought leaders in our field – and leading solutions used by governments, financial services organizations and many other sectors worldwide. By working with the strengths and capabilities of our partners we aim to achieve greater scale, longer reach and higher revenues for them and for us, while developing long-term, trusted relationships to drive innovation and growth.”
