PALO ALTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jumio, the leading provider of AI-powered end-to-end identity verification and eKYC solutions, today announced the appointment of Jennifer N. Harris to serve on the company’s Board of Directors.
Most recently, Harris was chief financial officer at Q2 Holdings, Inc., a provider of secure, cloud-based digital solutions in financial services, where she took the company through its initial public offering on the New York Stock Exchange in 2014.
Harris has extensive experience with acquisitions and IPOs, and joins Jumio after more than three decades spent in high-profile finance and accounting positions at rapidly growing public and private high-technology companies, serving markets ranging from SaaS and cloud-based finance solutions to nonprofit software solutions, broadband and mobile data services.
“Jennifer’s expertise in financial and operational infrastructure at high-growth technology companies is a tremendous asset for Jumio as we continue to scale our leadership in the digital identity space,” said Jumio CEO Robert Prigge. “Her stewardship role will further strengthen our ability to leverage record growth and our recent investment from Great Hill Partners for long-term profitability and performance.”
Harris’ appointment to the Board comes at a strategic inflection point for Jumio. The company secured the $150 million investment from Great Hill Partners in March 2021; it also grew revenue and sales over 150% in Q2 2021 and achieved all-time record sales for its end-to-end AML compliance solutions. Jumio has also recently expanded its executive bench with key hires including Anna Convery as chief marketing officer and Bala Kumar as chief product officer.
“I’m thrilled to be joining Jumio at such an auspicious moment for the company,” Harris said. “Jumio is transforming the identity verification playbook for KYC, fraud detection, compliance, bank-grade security and other demanding use cases. It’s an honor to be on the Jumio team as they disrupt the sector to meet unprecedented challenges in today’s online environment.”
Harris previously served in senior finance leadership roles for Blackbaud, Inc., Convio, Inc., Motive, Inc., TIVOLI Systems, Reliant Data Systems and Pervasive Software. A graduate of Indiana University (B.S., Business), Harris began her career as a public accountant with Price Waterhouse and is a proud member of the nonprofit 50/50 Women on Boards. Her wide-ranging experience includes managing investor relations, corporate IT, legal, HR, internal audit and other key administrative functions.
