Vancouver’s Trulioo announced the appointment of Zac Cohen as chief operating officer (COO) today.

Since 2015, Cohen has served as Trulioo’s General Manager.

The global identity verification provider announced $70 million in funding in September, contributing to one of the strongest quarters Canada has seen in venture and growth capital investments.

Cohen will oversee Trulioo’s senior leadership team, assume expanded responsibilities around policy, budget and investor relationships and spearhead the company’s continued global expansion.

“Zac has played a critical role in Truloo’s success over the past five years. Not only has he stepped up to run day-to-day operations, under his leadership, revenue has grown 150 percent year-over-year and our headcount has tripled to 140 staff across our Vancouver, San Francisco, and Dublin offices,” said Stephen Ufford, CEO of Trulioo.

“Zac’s depth of experience and expertise make him a vital contributor to our executive team as we continue to grow and thrive while advancing our mission of financial inclusion.”
