Garcia says IDEMIA has targeted Africa as a market ripe for growth. To better serve the market, a new region has been created under the IDEMIA MEA banner.

He adds that IDEMIA conducted a long search for the right person to head up the southern Africa region. Mutinelli was identified as the right candidate because he not only had the qualifications, experience and skills IDEMIA required, but Garcia says his personality is also a good fit with the company’s culture.

Mutinelli says he looks forward to the challenge of expanding IDEMIA’s business in southern Africa, a region that is on the cusp of adopting biometrics as a standard mechanism for securing identities. With the world’s leading biometric technology, he sees tremendous opportunities ahead.

Mutinelli stepped into his new IDEMIA shoes at the start of July 2019 and will use IDEMIA’s offices in Johannesburg as his base of operations.
