Fresh off a major rebrand announced in September, Veridium has appointed a new CEO.

Veridium Appoints New CEOJames Stickland joins the company from a position as Non Executive Director of Red Deer, a UK-based fintech company offering an investment management tool. Before that, he served as HSBC’s Investment Director for the Corporate Venture Fund, where his goal was to foster investment and technological innovation. Stickland has also held senior positions with JP Morgan Chase, where he worked in Tech Business Development, as well as Cisco and IBM.

In a statement announcing his appointment, Veridium suggested that Stickland’s background makes him “uniquely well positioned to lead the company as it addresses key security issues impacting the global 2000, financial services, healthcare and government organizations.”

Veridium changed its name from the previous Hoyos Labs only a few months ago, and immediately proceeded to launch its Veridium ID biometric authentication platform. Stickland is already putting his weight behind the platform, commenting that “[e]nterprises across the globe are attempting to tackle the ongoing problems associated with identity and access management, and VeridiumID is perfectly positioned to fully support these efforts.”
