Paul Norris said “I am excited to work for a growing company in the digital identity space at a time where customer identity is at the core of many digital transformation initiatives. The Ubisecure Identity Platform has proven its market fit across both public and private sector in the Nordics, and I’m very happy to be able to lead the commercial team as we extend our partner network and take our solutions across Europe.”
Simon Wood, CEO of Ubisecure said “Paul has a proven record of building and nurturing long-term business relationships with both customers and partners in the cybersecurity industry. With Paul heading up our commercial organisation, Ubisecure is well-positioned to accelerate our growth across Europe.”
