Four additions to the team, and newly created roles for growth.

Salford-based ProofID has unveiled four new members on its executive leadership team. Scott Leiper serves as non-executive chairman, and Heather Chatten, John Iandolo and Krishnendu DasGupta join the team with three newly created roles as chief people officer (CPO), chief revenue officer (CRO) and senior VP of managed services, respectively. Former chairman, Gareth Noonan remains on the board of directors and takes up the newly created role of chief strategy officer (CSO).

In May 2022, Maven Capital Partners invested £15 million in ProofID to accelerate its growth ambitions and an integral part of the strategy was focussed on creating the right team for the challenges ahead. Moving forward the new hires bring a complementary set of skills to the company.
