HID Global Launches New Identification Solutions Group

IRVINE, Calif.

In an effort to better support its customers, HID Global has reshaped some of its business to create the Identification Solutions (IDS) business to supplement its Identity and Access Management (IAM) offerings.

IDS aligns HID’s business and incorporates technology in the areas of e-government, cashless payment, industry and logistics, food and animal ID and HID Connect to strengthen the value proposition and fulfillment processes that have been available to HID physical access control customers.

Leading the IDS business is Mark Scaparro, senior vice president, sales and marketing for IDS. Scaparro has served with HID Global for eight years as executive vice president and brings more than 25 years of security industry experience to his new role. Scaparro will be responsible for the development of strategies related to IDS, its market segments, channels, customers, use applications and solution offerings.

HID Global has made several key appointments to the IDS senior management team, reporting to Scaparro. They are:

Marie-Françoise Glotz has been appointed vice president, food and animal ID, industry and logistics. Glotz has been with the company for more than 11 years, holding several positions of increasing responsibility within HID and the former ITG, including working the last seven years in senior management within the industrial, food and animal segments. She is tasked with developing sales and marketing, as well as establishing vertical markets for her respective business segments.

René Van Ryt has been appointed to IDS senior management as vice president, cashless payment for HID Global. With more than 15 years of professional experience, HID Global will benefit from Van Ryt’s expertise in security, RFID technology and smart card applications. Having held several increasingly important positions within HID and the former ITG, he is responsible for further development of automatic fare collection, ticketing and contactless payment business areas.

Also part of the IDS senior management team is Manuel Villamayor, who has been appointed vice president, e-government. With more than 10 years of experience in RFID technology and transponders, Villamayor is responsible for the worldwide market and sales strategy for inlays, and prelaminates and readers. He will also work closely with governments worldwide to develop and implement e-Passport solutions, e-Document solutions (national IDs), and border crossing solutions.
