FacePhi sets up its new subsidiary in the UK and declares its commitment to the EMEA area
The new subsidiary will be led by General Manager EMEA, Enrico Montagnino, who joined the company last April to lead the conquest of this new region.
The tech company seeks to consolidate its presence in Europe, the Middle East and Africa and open new markets with the creation of a specialised international sales team.
FacePhi, the leading company in technology for user digital identity verification, reinforces its commitment to Europe, the Middle East and Africa with the establishment of a new subsidiary in the United Kingdom. FacePhi EMEA thus becomes the third branch created by the tech company, which already has subsidiaries in South Korea, FacePhi APAC, and in Uruguay, FacePhi LATAM, in addition to its headquarters in Spain.
This new delegation will be led by Enrico Montagnino, EMEA General Manager, who joined the company last April with the aim of establishing FacePhi’s presence in this market and thus accelerate the implementation of FacePhi solutions in the region. The subsidiary will incorporate profiles such as sales staff, administration, human resources, marketing and projects in the Anglo-Saxon region, in addition to a sales team that will work from strategic countries in the EMEA area to close new business opportunities.
“The United Kingdom is a strategic country, a gateway to new markets from which we want to meet the needs of our customers and expand the use cases of our technology,” said Javier Mira, president and CEO of FacePhi. “The demand for our solutions has grown a lot in recent years in this region and, thanks to this sales-focused team, we want to continue expanding our presence around the world,” Mira said.
“The opening of this new subsidiary represents a key step for FacePhi, a company that is in a moment of expansion and growth,” said Enrico Montagnino, EMEA General Manager at FacePhi. “The possibility of leading a multidisciplinary team of these characteristics is a challenge and shows the firm’s commitment to its projects and customers,” said Montagnino.
FacePhi EMEA, the company’s third subsidiary
Since the beginning of 2022, FacePhi has been articulating an international structure that began in 2019 with the opening of its first subsidiary, FacePhi APAC, in Seoul, South Korea. After several years as a support office, in March 2022 FacePhi consolidated its presence in Latin America with the inauguration of its subsidiary in Montevideo, Uruguay, FacePhi LATAM. Today, after hiring its new General Manager EMEA, Enrico Montagnino, last April, the company decides to commit to its expansion in Europe, the Middle East and Africa and, therefore, constitutes FacePhi EMEA, its new subsidiary in the United Kingdom.
With the opening of these three subsidiaries, FacePhi reaffirms its commitment to the internationalisation of its solutions and the consolidation of a global team with unstoppable growth that allows them to be present in any region and industry.
