Intellicheck, Inc. (Nasdaq: IDN), an industry leader in identification verification solutions, today announced the appointment of Bruce Ackerman as the Company’s Senior Vice President of Sales and David Andrews as Vice President of Marketing.
Intellicheck CEO Bryan Lewis said the appointments of Ackerman and Andrews reflect the company’s continued focus on growth and expansion into new market verticals to drive market share and revenue. “As critical business and consumer needs around identity theft and fraud persist and grow, we will continue to build our team to take advantage of the many opportunities to expand adoption of Intellicheck’s proven technology solutions. We expect to continue to strengthen our team to meet those needs across multiple markets going forward.”
“I am very excited by these additions to the Intellicheck team. Bruce and David bring track records that demonstrate their success in driving business results. Their experience will provide Intellicheck with the valuable sales and marketing tools essential to supporting our strategic vision for growth,” Lewis concluded.
Ackerman has been in B2B software sales for more than 25 years. His experience includes the financial services market, banking, and non-banking with World-Check, which was acquired by Thomson Reuters. More recently, he spent five years heading global sales at Acuant in the digital identity space leading to its successful acquisition.
Andrews has been marketing B2B software for more than 30 years focusing on e-commerce, payments, and most recently, digital identity. He has marketed products for a variety of leading high tech companies including Intuit, BroadVision, Twilio, and, most recently, IdentityMind.
Commenting on the departure of Sales Vice President Michael Ehlers, Lewis said, “It is unfortunate that unforeseen personal issues arose that led to Mike’s decision to resign. I respect and appreciate him putting the interests of the Company first in tendering his resignation. Mike’s contributions to the Intellicheck team in identifying and attracting talented professionals such as Bruce Ackerman will have a lasting impact. We wish him only the best.”
The appointment of Ackerman and Andrews follows the recent announcement of the appointment of Garrett Gafke as the Company’s new President. Reporting to CEO Bryan Lewis, Gafke will focus on product strategy and building the Company’s marketing capabilities. His previous positions include Founder, President and CEO of IdentityMind, a digital identity company, and President and CEO of Paymate, a global payments and risk platform.
