“There are four things that I look for in a company: Does it make the world a better place? Does it have the best product in its space? Is it led by amazing founders with a long-term vision? And does it hire great people?” said Mogford. “Veriff checked all those boxes for me. I believe that Veriff has the best ID verification technology – whether to ensure that your children are safe online playing video games, or that your taxi driver is who they say they are. This is something that should make all of our lives safer and easier. I have high expectations for what Veriff’s team will achieve and I’m thrilled to be part of that journey.”
