A former Oracle executive is Onfido‘s new Chief Marketing Officer.
Nate Skinner previously served as SVP of Global Marketing for Oracle’s Advertising and Customer Experience (CX) business, a position he held since February of 2020. Before that, he was Salesforce Pardot’s Global Head of Marketing from February of 2017 to January of 2020; and his resumé also includes prior senior marketing roles with Borland, Salesforce, and Amazon Web Services, where he served as Head of Enterprise Marketing & Executive Programs from 2014 to 2015.
Notably, Skinner was also highlighted by Business Insider last year in a list of 20 executives who were “shaping the future of marketing tech”.
With his experience accumulated in Silicon Valley, Skinner adds another dose of tech expertise to Onfido’s leadership team after the appointments of former HP executive Sue Barsamian and former Okta CFO Bill Losch to the company’s Board of Directors last month. The influx of talents reflects Onfido’s strong momentum as a provider of identity verification solutions in a booming market, with the company having reported a 93 percent year-to-date revenue increase in its recent Q3 update.
Commenting on his appointment, Skinner gestured to the headwinds that have helped to propel this growth, noting that since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in particular, “entire market segments have digitized in weeks instead of years,” while Onfido has stepped in to provide identity security for a growing number of online interactions.
“Onfido sits at this intersection of market demand and product fit, driven by a global transformation to digital first,” he said. “I’m excited to join Onfido as we power this trend to simplify digital identification and onboarding for our customers.”
Onfido CEO Mike Tuchen, meanwhile, emphasized the assets that Skinner brings to the table as Onfido seeks to maintain its momentum. “His broad range of experience, from sales engineering, product marketing, competitive intelligence, and demand gen across the world’s largest enterprise SaaS companies, will be invaluable to Onfido as we continue to scale and grow our technology into new markets,” he said.
