ImageWare has a new Chief Financial Officer. The company has announced that Jay B. Lewis is taking over the position effective immediately, and will be working out of the company’s San Diego headquarters by mid-2021.
As CFO, Lewis will be expected help ImageWare navigate a period of anticipated growth, and to leverage his contacts to accelerate that process. He has more than 20 years of experience as a financial executive, and had previous CFO stints at Jones Media Networks and at ID Watchdog until the latter was acquired by Equifax in 2017. He has raised more than $300 million in capital over the course of his career, and oversaw $400 million in mergers and acquisitions activity.
“We are extremely pleased to welcome Jay to the ImageWare team,” said ImageWare President, CEO, and Chair Kristin Taylor. “Not only does Jay have the ideal finance and capital markets experience to guide us through our growth trajectory and contemplated up listing to Nasdaq, the depth of his technology and identity experience make him well suited to support our velocity and execution plans in 2021.”
“ImageWare’s vision, proven leadership team and product strategies were just a few of the components that led me to know that I want to commit my skills and energies, and to be part of the team driving ImageWare’s growth and success,” added Lewis.
ImageWare closed an $11.56 million private placement in November. The company also brought on a new Vice President of Sales in July.
