IDEMIA (previously OT-Morpho) has appointed Ed Casey as chief executive officer for its North America (NORAM) Identity & Security (I&S) Business Unit.

“IDEMIA is a world leader in digital security and identification technologies, and I am excited to have this opportunity to lead the very talented Identity & Security team in North America,” said Mr Casey. “Securing our identity is a critical issue in the world today. The opportunities created through rising identity fraud, increasing acceptance of biometric solutions and the growing need for digital transformation in the government sector make IDEMIA’s solutions highly relevant. I am thrilled to join IDEMIA and start working in providing identity assurance to secure and simplify lives and in helping the company reach its growth potential.”

Current NORAM head, Bob Eckel, will work with Mr Casey during his remaining time at the company in order to ensure a smooth transition. This appointment takes effect immediately.

Before joining IDEMIA, Mr Casey spent 13 years within Serco Group. He held various senior management positions at Serco, including group chief operating officer and member of the board of directors, acting group chief executive officer, and chief executive officer of Serco’s Americas Division. Under Mr Casey’s leadership, the Americas business tripled in size and successfully integrated two acquisitions: RCI and SI International.

Prior to Serco, he held senior management positions in the energy, investment banking and private equity fields at NP Energy, an energy marketing business he founded and later sold; Tenneco Energy; LG&E Energy; The Blackstone Group; and Fremont Group.
