“I have spent over twenty years working with leading software and tech businesses and I couldn’t be more optimistic about Onfido’s product and mission. This is an incredibly exciting time for the business, with Onfido’s focus on virtual verification more important than ever as companies focus on digitisation and the shift to remote working. Husayn has built a fantastic team and business and I look forward to building on that success as we rapidly scale the company worldwide and broaden our offering.”

Onfido employs over 400 people globally, has raised more than $200 million across multiple funding rounds and is continuing to grow rapidly across all its end markets.
