Skilling Up to Scale Up

Skilling Up to Scale Up

Last month we announced our $30m funding round from CraneVC and Microsoft Ventures.

Today I’m excited to welcome 4 game-changing team members to Onfido.

Kevin Trilli has come on board as Chief Product Officer; Andy Wilde joins us as our new Chief Technology Officer; Andy Leaver is our new Chief Revenue Officer; and Lila Tretikov joins our board as an Independent Board Director.


It’s our job to transition Onfido into an iconic enterprise software company.

Ruhul, Husayn and I founded Onfido with a big vision. We want to bring Identity Verification to the masses — to help everyone easily prove their legal identity and in turn, access the online world.

What started as 3 nerds with a crazy idea has morphed over the past 5 years into a 150-strong team. And it’s our job in the coming 5 years to transition Onfido from the dynamic, high quality startup team it is today into an iconic enterprise software company.

Being a young company has its advantages, but as we go global and focus on solving problems for the world’s largest companies, experienced senior leadership is invaluable.


After scouring the globe for many months, we were fortunate enough to meet Kevin, Andy, Andy and Lila.

Kevin Trilli, Chief Product Officer, joins from leading Data Privacy Management company TrustArc, where he served as SVP of Product. A veteran of Silicon Valley, Kevin has over 20 years of product and entrepreneurial experience in digital data security, privacy and governance, and has led the full process from strategy to execution to scale at companies including VeriSign and AssertID.

Andy Wilde, Chief Technology Officer, has more than 3 decades of experience managing Engineering teams at companies like HP and Superscape. Most recently Andy was VP Engineering at Swiftkey — one of Europe’s leading AI companies — where he built and managed the technology function through to their sale to Microsoft.

Andy Leaver, Chief Revenue Officer, joins from Sailthru in NYC where he was CRO. Andy has led international commercial teams for some of the world’s most successful enterprise software companies including Workday, Bazaarvoice, SuccessFactors, Ariba and Hortonworks — the fastest enterprise software company ever to reach $100m in revenue.

Lila Tretikov, Independent Board Director, is the former Executive Director of the Wikimedia Foundation and also sits on the boards of Rackspace, Crunchbase and Privacy Shell. A recognised authority in machine learning, Lila has founded and sold multiple startups as well as having led SugarCRM’s technology function as CPO and CIO.

What’s next?

Kevin and Andy Wilde will lead our world-class engineering, product and research teams to build the next version of our machine-learning based document and facial verification technology.

Andy Leaver will be spearheading our international expansion as we launch more sales teams across the globe, with LatAm and India being our two major growth regions.

There’s never been a better time to be part of this team. Check out to see how you could fit in!
