Leading provider of trust and identity services, Trust Stamp, has announced the promotion of Josh Allen to CEO of two of its subsidiaries, Trust Stamp Malta Ltd and Trust Stamp Rwanda Ltd.
The appointments are effective immediately and see the finance and management veteran rise to helm the subsidiaries after barely a year at the company.
It also comes shortly after the pioneering Atlanta, Georgia-based company, launched on the Nasdaq, “following a record year indicative of our sustained positioning for company-wide growth.”
Mr Allen joined in late 2020 as Executive Vice President for Strategic Investments, Mergers, and Acquisitions and has served as an Executive Director of its board since January 2021.
Trust Stamp Malta is the company’s largest innovation hub, focusing on boosting the company’s European operations. Its effectiveness and agility was described by Trust Stamp CEO Gareth N Genner as “critical.”
“With a multifaceted understanding of Trust Stamp and proven approach to leadership, we look forward to Josh’s continued contribution to enterprise-wide growth in a new capacity for both operations,” he added.
Trust Stamp arrived in Malta in 2020.
At the time, Mr Genner said: “We intend to be a committed corporate citizen to Malta and engage in every way we can.”
“A lot is going on in Malta which will eventually leave a positive global impact,” he added.
In comments addressing his promotion, Mr Allen focused on the Rwandan subsidiary, stating that the company’s strong presence in the country reflects its “long-standing commitment to universal inclusion.”
Additionally, he pointed to the size of the African Continental Free Trade Area, which connects 1.3 billion people across the region, and said that realising its “massive economic and societal impact is dependent on the accessibility of secure identity frameworks.”
As the company continues to expand on the continent, Mr Allen said: “Trust Stamp is well positioned to transform how organisations and individuals transact across the continent.”
