Ajay Bhalla (President of Cyber and Intelligence Solutions, Mastercard) commenting on the economic and social benefits of global digital identity solutions:  

“Today’s digital identity landscape is patchy, inconsistent and what works in one country often won’t work in another. We have an opportunity to establish a system that puts people first, giving them control of their identity data and where it is used.” 

Alberto Corvo (Founding Partner & CEO, Motive Labs) commenting on the appointments of Roberto Ferrari and Sameer Sawhney to the Motive Labs team:

“As we expand our international coverage to other key markets, we are excited to welcome Sameer and Roberto to Motive Labs. Sameer brings a history of expanding businesses profitably in Asia & Oceania, a deep understanding of emerging economies and markets and a truly global perspective. Roberto brings extensive experience in financial technology in Italy and offers a rare dual perspective having advised and chaired several FinTechs as well as holding leadership roles at a major bank. Sameer and Roberto share our dedication to innovation and value creation and I look forward to seeing them apply their experience and industry knowledge within Motive Labs.”
