Elsewhere, the business premiered as a leader in G2’s Anti-Money Laundering Grid and its Europe Regional Grid for Fraud Detection.

How we verify ourselves online is fundamental to digital experiences and Onfido is leading the markets, constantly innovating, delivering new AI and biometrics-based solutions to keep fraudsters at bay while enabling businesses to build long-term relationships with their customers. I look forward to supporting Onfido’s mission to simplify identity for everyone and help reshape verification in the online world.”

Over the last twenty years, Daniel has held executive positions at Scout24, Ciao!, Zanox (AWIN), Axel Springer, Hitfox (IONIQ Group) and was an engineering manager at Microsoft. He also has experience working with various startups, including Berlin-based Solarisbank, where he assisted with laying the groundwork for building its successful banking-as-a-platform product portfolio.  

Mike Tuchen, Chief Executive Officer of Onfido added: “Daniel is a real asset to the executive team. His strength as a technical but strategic leader, who understands how to manage investments across a multi-product portfolio will be invaluable to Onfido as we continue to grow. His management ethos, where he puts his team first, fits perfectly into our culture, and there’s no doubt that he will flourish in his role.”
