Convery comes from cybersecurity firm Radware, where she also served as chief marketing officer for close to five years. Prior to that, she held sales, marketing and product management positions at OpenSpan and NICE Systems Ltd.
“With extensive experience in cybersecurity, AML, fraud, robotic process automation, voice analytics, biometrics, enterprise customer experience and customer journey analytics, Convery focuses on building highly scalable, highly optimized marketing functions that deliver revenue and market value,” Jumio said in a news release.
The company is promoting Convery’s hiring as part of a “landmark year” that saw Jumio’s revenue and sales grow by more than 150 percent in the second quarter. The company attributed this growth to the need for businesses to know their users are who they say they are.
Verifying users’ identity online has become more essential since the start of the pandemic, as PYMNTS previously reported.
“Identity has become front and center of many considerations,” Jumio Chief of Digital Identity Philipp Pointner said in an interview with PYMNTS earlier this week. “It has received yet another boost of importance through the pandemic, and it is the linchpin toward a better digital economy.”
Convery has been named a Woman of the Year in Technology by the Georgia chapter of Women in Technology, and is a longtime proponent for STEM education and professional development for women and girls.
“I am delighted to join a global world-class leadership team and to help further Jumio’s mission to make the internet a safer place,” she said. “I very much look forward to working with Jumio’s extensive and ever-growing network of customers and partners.”
Jumio has carried out over 400 million verifications covering more than 200 nations and territories from real-time web and mobile transactions.
