Doug Aley, Paravision CEO

Joey joins Paravision from Tascent, where he was Founder and Co-CEO. He led Tascent’s global team in the development of a comprehensive suite of award-winning biometric devices and software, deployed and enabling tens of millions of transactions annually in the US, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. During his time at Tascent, the company won multiple national-scale and enterprise-wide programs, resulting in a tenfold increase in annual revenue.

Before Tascent, Joey held product leadership positions at AOptix Identity Solutions (acquired by Tascent) and Fidelica Microsystems (now part of Lenovo). Throughout his career, he has been focused on marketing and product management in biometrics and identity, coupling transformative technologies with cutting edge design, outstanding usability, and dynamic marketing.

Just a few years ago, we didn’t dream that face recognition would get so good so quickly. Artificial Intelligence has dramatically altered the landscape of biometric identity and face recognition specifically, enabling outstanding accuracy and truly frictionless user experiences. I’m thrilled to join the team at Paravision, which has established a clear leadership position in face recognition technology while also maintaining a focus on flexibility, collaboration, and trust.
