Trulioo Hires Amy Penn, from PayPal, as VP of Sales

Trulioo, a provider of online identity verification, this week announced that former PayPal veteran Amy Penn has been appointed as Vice President of Sales to help the company capitalize on its escalating sales growth, particularly in the payments sector.

Penn is an agile sales veteran in the identity management, regulatory compliance and payments space having spent most of her career at PayPal, Artistotle, and ChoicePoint.

“We’ve seen a significant spike in demand for Trulioo’s identity verification product from the payments sector,” said Stephen Ufford, CEO of Trulioo. “With revenues growing over 300% in 2015, Amy’s remarkable background and experience handling aggressive revenue growth year over year, puts her in the perfect position to head our sales operations.”

Penn will focus on revenue growth to meet the growing demand for Trulioo’s Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC) compliant identity verification product, GlobalGateway, which recently rolled out its Normalized API with built-in intelligence and common field matching, designed for scalability and flexibility.

“It’s a very exciting time in the payments space,” said Penn. “Being on the customer-side for identity verification products, I have seen it all, and Trulioo’s innovation is truly a game-changer in the market.”
