Our identity platform is growing beyond boundaries in the past year. With this success, our team has also been rapidly evolving, and we now have a new Chief Commercial Officer joining us!

Let’s delve deeper into Ben’s recent experiences and what he hopes to achieve at uqudo!

Tell us more about yourself

As a dedicated family person, I prioritise creating a loving and supportive environment for my loved ones. Growing up in Germany and working for international companies around the globe, I’ve gained a unique perspective and appreciation for diverse cultures. I have a winning mindset and a competitive nature, always seeking success and solutions. Sports serve as my zen, allowing me to unwind, stay active, and maintain a healthy lifestyle. I have a strong background in sales leadership, particularly in the high-tech and financial industries.

Over the past decade, I have helped companies grow brand recognition, revenue, and profits in B2B enterprise technology with a strong focus on identity verification services. I have experience leading sales teams of various sizes and successfully managing P&Ls, with a track record of achieving revenue goals as high as €100M. Building genuine connections, motivating sales teams, and fostering trust and confidence with clients are essential components of my success.

What do you hope to achieve in your new role as the CCO?

As the Chief Commercial Officer (CCO), I am eager to leverage my experience and expertise to drive uqudo’s business growth and profitability. Drawing from my previous roles as Vice President of Sales Global Financial Services at IDnow and Senior Sales Director at EMEA, I bring a deep understanding of the high-tech and financial industries to this position.

In my new role, I aim to develop and execute a comprehensive sales strategy that expands uqudo’s market presence, drives internationalization efforts, and achieves revenue targets. Additionally, I am committed to building a high-performing sales team, fostering collaboration, and creating a culture of innovation & collaboration within the organization.

Based on your initial assessments, what do you consider uqudo’s biggest strengths?

uqudo’s biggest strengths lie in its innovative product portfolio, strong technological foundation, and ability to effectively understand and address customer needs. I believe that uqudo’s commitment to quality, customer satisfaction, and adaptability to market trends will also contribute significantly to its success.

uqudo possesses the largest database of verified credentials in the world, a remarkable capability that remains largely unknown to the public. With this unparalleled resource, coupled with our advanced technologies, we stand alongside governmental entities as one of the key players in the realm of accurately
identifying individuals’ true identities.

What are your thoughts on uqudo in comparison to our competitors, and how can we compete more effectively?

When comparing uqudo to our competitors, it becomes evident that uqudo possesses a unique advantage with the largest database of verified credentials. This sets us apart from most players in the industry, as very few can boast such a comprehensive resource. uqudo harnesses the power of NFC technology, machine learning, AI, and government databases worldwide to accurately identify an individual’s true identity.

What truly sets uqudo apart is its all-encompassing ecosystem for identity verification, encompassing a range of services including KYB, KYC, Address Verification, Credit Check, PEP Sanction, Adverse Media, and much more. By consolidating all of these essential microservices into a managed digital identity platform, uqudo has created a seamless and efficient solution.

To compete more effectively, we can leverage our unique position by highlighting the breadth and depth of our offerings, emphasizing the reliability and accuracy of our verification services, and establishing strategic partnerships to expand our reach and influence in the market.

What are you looking forward to while working at uqudo?

I can’t wait to build MEA´s leader for identity verification services. I am genuinely excited about my journey at uqudo. Firstly, I look forward to contributing to the company’s growth and success by utilizing my skills and experience in commercial leadership and business development. Collaborating with a talented and dedicated team to drive innovation and achieve our goals is something I eagerly anticipate.

Additionally, I am excited about the potential for personal and professional growth that uqudo offers. The opportunity to work in a dynamic and entrepreneurial environment, where learning, development, and creativity are valued, is highly motivating. Lastly, I am enthusiastic about being part of a company that emphasizes teamwork, integrity, and a customer-centric approach, as these values closely align with my own.
