Daltrey hires new CTSO, Commercial Director and Ops lead

Daltrey today announced it has appointed renowned security and identity expert, Julien Bringer, as its new Chief Technical Security Officer. Bringer joins the biometric identity startup as it rides a growth wave following an influx of new client projects and another successful funding round.

With decades of experience, a PhD and more than 80 published works, Bringer is widely-recognised as a global leader in cyber security, biometrics, identity and privacy. On top of continuing to innovate Daltrey’s physical and digital authentication solution, his expertise in biometric information protection, security certification and compliance will ensure Daltrey remains secure by design as its user base expands. He also brings a wealth of experience across ePassport, eIdentification and government security standards.

The company also recently appointed Michael Warnock as Commercial Director, to lead growth across Australia and internationally. Warnock has more than 25 years’ experience working with emerging technologies, most recently as Head of Growth for identity and access management company SecureAuth.

On top of also filling roles for a Solution Architect, DevOps Engineer and Solution Engineer, Daltrey has also appointed business optimisation lead Michael Field as Head of Operations. With a background in strategy, process optimisation and employee wellbeing, Field has diverse industry experience spanning telecommunications infrastructure, defence, legal, technology, finance and banking.

“There’s a keen demand for a modernised approach to identity as governments and private enterprise face increased pressure to create more robust security frameworks, further heightened by recent growth in remote work, BYOD practices and cyber security attacks on Australian soil,” says Daltrey Managing Director and Co-Founder Blair Crawford.

“We’ve headhunted top international talent to deliver a unique biometric identity solution, putting us in an excellent position to solve these complex security issues and capitalise on a growing pipeline of client projects.”

Daltrey is looking to further expand its solutions and marketing teams in the coming months.
