Jumio, a US-based provider of automated, end-to-end identity proofing, risk assessment and eKYC solutions, has appointed Jon Jones as the company’s new Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales.
With more than 25 years of experience in the fraud and identity space, Jones will drive the company’s global sales strategy in his new role.
He joins Jumio from consumer credit reporting company Experian, where he most recently served as Senior Vice President of Sales Operations and focused on the company’s fraud and identity, software, analytics and consulting product lines.
Prior to that, he was the president of Canadian online verification company Trulioo.
“The whole concept of reducing and removing identity theft and fraud has been with me throughout my career which is why aligning with Jumio’s mission is so important.
Jumio is a leader in the identity space and I look forward to being a part of the company’s next level of growth.”
In addition to Jones’ appointment, Jumio had also announced the promotion of Simon Winchester to Vice President of Global Account Management.
Winchester is an industry expert who has worked for the company since 2014 in various enterprise sales leadership roles.
He most recently served as Jumio’s Vice President of Worldwide Advanced Technologies and, before that, Vice President of EMEA Sales.
In his new role, Winchester’s focus is on fostering and growing Jumio’s relationship with its global customer base.
The appointments comes on the heels of Jumio’s announcement just last month that it had cleared over US$200 million in bookings last year.
