Encompass Corporation, the provider of intelligently automated Know Your Customer (KYC) solutions, today announces its expansion into North America, with office headquarters based in New York.
The expansion will allow Encompass to better serve the needs of existing global clients with a presence in North America, as well as secure new clients and partnerships in the region, in a marked effort to become the undisputed lead platform for automated, corporate KYC due diligence worldwide.
Alex Ford has been appointed President, North America, overseeing all aspects of the GTM, driving business growth and working with customers, partners and the Encompass team to transform KYC with automation in financial institutions and other regulated entities. Encompass has received various notable awards recognition, including ‘Best Solution’ category for Customer Onboarding – Regulation Asia Awards for Excellence, shortlisted in the British Bank Awards, winner of Red Herring’s Top 100 Europe Award and regional winner at this year’s Barclays Scale Up Entrepreneur of the Year.
Joining in 2012, Alex has held Executive responsibility for several business functions at Encompass Corporation including Customer Success, Operations, Marketing, Product and Delivery. From 2015 to 2020, Alex was based in Glasgow with the launch and expansion of the UK operation. Most recently as VP Product and Marketing she was based in Sydney, before taking up leadership of the North America business in New York.
Joining Alex in the US will initially be six senior staff members before increasing to more than 10 by the end of 2021, and doubling again in 2022. This hiring initiative falls in line with Encompass’s commitment to growth, and the firm has already seen a sharp rise in global staff numbers and a significant expansion of the senior team over the last 12 months.
