Fabian Shin joins BIO-key board


BIO-key International has appointed Hong Kong-based Fabian Shin to its board of directors. The company says Mr Shin’s appointment expands the global presence of BIO-key’s board to four internationally-based directors, while increasing the board to nine members.

Mr Shin has more than 25 years of experience in advising companies as an investment banker, financial consultant and independent director. He is currently an independent non-executive director of several Hong Kong-listed firms. During his investment banking career, Mr Shin was deputy chief executive officer at CMB International Capital Limited and head of investment banking at a unit of the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China.

Mr Shin started his career in the audit department of Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu, later joining Victory City International Holding as a group financial controller and company secretary.

“Given Asia’s importance in BIO-key’s future revenue, partnering and product sourcing opportunities, the board saw the need to expand our presence, experience and base of relationships in the region by adding another accomplished executive based in Hong Kong,” says Tom Gilley, BIO-key director and chair of the board’s nomination committee. “Fabian’s business and financial experience, network of relationships and record of accomplishment made him an ideal candidate to join our Board.

“We now have three directors in Asia, one in Europe and five in the US. We are confident Fabian’s experience, network of relationships and skillset will immediately add value to BIO-key and enhance our Asia Pacific visibility and presence,” says Mike DePasquale BIO-key chairman and CEO.

“I am honoured to join BIO-key’s board at this exciting point in its transformation and growth,” says Fabian Shin. “I already see a range of potential opportunities to pursue on BIO-key’s behalf in Asia and look forward to working with the board and management to advance its business in the region.”

Mr Shin is a graduate of the University of Birmingham. He is a member of the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants, Association of Chartered Certified Accountants, Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators and the Hong Kong Institute of Company Secretaries.
