The chairman of BioCatch‘s board of directors has now been named the company’s CEO.
Howard Edelstein became the behavioral biometrics specialist‘s chairman in 2016, the same year that Eyal Goldwerger took on the role of CEO.
In a statement announcing Edelstein’s new appointment as CEO, the company called him a “FinTech industry luminary”, highlighting his efforts to digitize securities trading as CEO of Thomson Financial ESG and Omgeo, his embrace of cloud computing as CEO of Radianz, and his salvaging efforts of companies including NYFIX, BondDesk Group, and REDI Global Technologies, which were ultimately sold to larger firms.
Offering his own commentary on the company he now directly leads, Edelstein said “BioCatch has all of the ingredients required to drive a transformation of the Cybersecurity industry: a great team, a visionary technology and a leading market position in a rapidly-growing category,” adding that the company “is perfectly positioned to be the behavioral component inside all digital identity authentication platforms.”
Edelstein will retain his role as BioCatch’s chairman as he moves forward in his new role as the company’s CEO.
