Official Statement: SEC Settles with Former Jumio Executives

Jumio releases official statement in reaction to U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission settlements against Daniel Mattes, former founder, and Chad Starkey, former CFO:

“Jumio severed all ties with former founder, Daniel Mattes, and former CFO Chad Starkey in 2015, and they have not been involved with the successor company, Jumio Corp., in any capacity,” said Robert Prigge, Jumio president. “The actions of Mattes and Starkey that were the subject of the settlement were between shareholders and never impacted company operations. In fact, over the past few years, Jumio has proven itself as the leader in the identity-as-a-service market, as evidenced by our leadership team, innovative solutions and high-integrity business practices. We’ve verified over 170 million identities in more than 200 countries and territories worldwide and, in 2018, grew our customer count by 60 percent and sales volume by 70 percent (year over year). We’re extraordinarily proud of the company that we’ve created over the past few years.”
