Biometric software and hardware systems firm  BIO-key has announced the appointment of Hong Kong-based  Fabian Shin to BIO-key’s board of directors.

In a statement, the firm said Fabian’s appointment expands the global presence of BIO-key’s board to four internationally-based directors, while increasing the board to nine members.

Fabian has over 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 companies.

Tom Gilley, BIO-key Director and Chair of the Board’s nomination committee, commented, “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. 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 U.S. We are confident Fabian’s experience, network of relationships and skill set will immediately add value to BIO-key and enhance our Asia Pacific visibility and presence,” stated Mike DePasquale BIO-key Chairman and CEO.
Fabian said, “I am honored to join BIO-key's Board at this exciting point in its transformation and growth. 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.”
