Mitchel Lenson is the newest member of the BioCatch Board of Directors. The former Deutsche Bank executive has been appointed as an independent member of the board, where he will offer financial guidance as the company looks to expand its business internationally.
“Mitchel brings broad experience in the application of technology within the banking sector, our most important market,” said BioCatch Chairman and CEO Howard Edelstein.
“I am very excited to join the BioCatch board,” added Lenson. “I looked around the industry and came away convinced that BioCatch has the most innovative solution to establishing digital identity. Why wouldn’t any bank or financial institution take advantage of it?”
In addition to his stint as the Group Chief Information Officer at Deutsche Bank, Lenson’s 30-year career includes stops at UBS Warburg, Credit Suisse First Boston, and Olivant & Co. He has experience in American and international markets, and is the second independent member of the BioCatch Board following the appointment of Jay Mandelbaum last July.
BioCatch has been looking to expand its international portfolio in the past few months. The behavioral biometrics specialist recently identified some of the cybersecurity challenges it faces in Latin America, and also brought on a new CRO to oversee an ‘ambitious growth plan’ moving forward.
