Identity verification and fraud prevention firm GBG announced today that it has appointed Dev Dhiman as Managing Director of its Asia Pacific business, taking over from June Lee.
Dhiman has extensive experience working with financial institutions—a major segment of GBG's clientele—across the Asia Pacific and Middle East. Prior to joining GBG, he spent 12 years at Experian, where he held various finance-related roles and took on a number of senior positions, most recently Managing Director for Southeast Asia & Emerging Markets. He has in-depth knowledge of data intelligence, analytics, and fraud prevention, and as such he will be expected to drive GBG's growth in a part of the world that has seen an increasing rate of cybercrime and financial crime over the last few years.
He said of his appointment: "As financial crimes continue to evolve and increase in complexity, financial institutions are looking towards technology providers to develop innovative solutions and create robust ecosystems that can help them pre-empt and mitigate emerging fraud attacks to achieve a safe and trusted digital environment to transact with their consumers."
GBG also announced several other senior appointments at the same time, including Lara Clark as Chief Regulation Officer and Boris Huard as Managing Director for Identity & Fraud for EMEA, a newly created role.
