BioCatch Appoints Growth-Focused CEO

Israel-based BioCatch has a new CEO: Eyal Goldwerger has taken the helm, aiming to guide the company through an intensive growth phase.

BioCatch Appoints Growth-Focused CEOBioCatch is aiming to be a pioneer in the growing field of behavioral biometrics. Its platform uses a complex combination of behavioral, physiological, and cognitive patterns for user authentication, and in a statement announcing its new CEO BioCatch says the platform has already been deployed “at several of the world’s largest banks.”

Goldwerger’s role will be to build on that momentum, and his previous roles point to a capability to steer companies through early growth, having served as CEO of TargetSpot before it was acquired by Radionomy, and of XMPie prior to its being acquired by Xerox. As BioCatch board member and Blumber Capital managing director Bruce Taragin explains, “Eyal is a seasoned CEO with a history of scaling technology companies into market leaders,” and “has a proven ability to create strategic clarity and drive innovation and growth.”

The appointment announcement comes just ahead of a major opportunity for BioCatch to showcase its technology at the PAYMENTS 2016 conference in Phoenix, Arizona.
