SAN FRANCISCO — April 12, 2022 — Paravision, the U.S.-based leader in mission-critical face recognition and computer vision, announced today the appointment of technology leader Laura Palmer to its corporate board of directors.
Laura brings Paravision 25 years of global technology sales leadership experience. Currently the Global Vice President of Sales at Unity Technologies (NYSE: U), the world’s leading real-time 3D development platform, Laura leads the global go-to-market strategy for Unity’s Enterprise Digital Twin business. Over the last 4 years, Laura quadrupled revenues and played a pivotal role in Unity’s successful IPO in September 2020.
Before Unity, Laura held multiple executive positions at Google Enterprise (now Google Cloud Platform, or GCP). She was responsible for Google’s largest revenue-generating region covering the financial services, gaming, media & entertainment, and retail verticals and played a significant role in scaling GCP’s revenue to over $1 billion.
Laura is a go-to-market expert who has spent her career scaling disruptive technology businesses internationally. Her background in pricing and GTM strategies combined with deep insights into the role of synthetic data in AI will be major assets as Paravision looks beyond person-centric computer vision applications.
Doug Aley, Paravision CEO
In January, the National Institute of Standards and Technology ranked Paravision first in its rigorous 1:N Face Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT), making Paravision the first US company to hold the top position in that benchmark since 2019.
Amid increasing demand for US-developed AI solutions, Paravision recently announced that it has been awarded a Basic Ordering Agreement (BOA) from the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Joint Artificial Intelligence Center’s (JAIC) Data Readiness for Artificial Intelligence Development program (DRAID), with a total value of up to $241 million.
“Paravision has proven it can do what many thought was impossible: build facial recognition technology that outperforms any in the world, without compromising on ethics. I look forward to helping Paravision expand its technical vision and global reach as it continues to outpace the competition.”
