GeoComply co-founder and chair Anna Sainsbury is assuming the role of chief executive officer, having previously held the role between 2011 and 2018.
Sainsbury succeeds co-founder David Briggs, who has led the business since that time and helped to achieve significant revenue growth for the geolocation and compliance specialist.
Briggs will now serve as director with a focus on strategic initiatives, including the expansion of GeoComply’s cybersecurity services into new markets.
“David will continue to be an essential part of the company by dedicating himself to special projects, not least by providing core leadership on GeoComply’s future in fintech,” said Sainsbury. “He will also focus on managing and delivering innovation on the product front and will take a central role in consolidating our internship and graduate recruitment programmes to secure a bright future for our team’s growth.
“His leadership has seen GeoComply through a transformative period as the business has expanded into exciting verticals and received institutional investment.”
“After four incredible years as CEO, I am looking forward to supporting Anna as she steps back into the role she was born to have,” said Briggs. "Anna is a natural born leader and visionary and I have every confidence that her passion and dedication will take GeoComply to new heights.”
Sainsbury currently serves on the board of the American Gaming Association and Nasdaq-listed MVB Bank.
