Authenteq Announces First Female CEO
"Katarzyna, or Kasia as we call her, has been an integral part of our team since the day she joined and with my departure I can think of no better person to succeed me," says Runarsson. "She brings a wealth of knowledge and has proven to be both an effective and compassionate leader. The company is in great hands and I am thrilled to continue to support it through my role as a board member."
"I'm thrilled with Authenteq's decision to promote Kasia to CEO," says Tim Draper, founder of Draper Associates. "Having worked closely with her for the past few years, I truly don't think they could have named a better person to step into this role. She has the full support of the board and, of course, me." Draper is a board member and shareholder of Authenteq. Draper Associates also led Authenteq's Series A funding in 2019 and a Series A2 extension in June 2021.
"The identity verification space is such an exciting space right now and I truly feel that Authenteq is on the brink of something big," says Kazimierczak-
