Digital identity firm Chekk hires Jason Lee as CTO
Hong Kong-based digital identity and data solutions provider Chekk has appointed Jason Lee as its new chief technology officer (CTO).
Lee, who will be based in Singapore, has more than 26 years’ worth of technology experience in fintechs and large corporations working across management, development and engineering roles.
He has managed international teams in Singapore, Hong Kong, Canada, India and Vietnam and spent 14 years working in mobile telecoms firm Motorola’s R&D centre.
Prior to Chekk, Lee was CTO at compliance regtech Regtank Technology and also served as CTO at eBuyNow, a data-driven consumer electronics firm.
Chekk says its software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions enable fast know your business (KYB) for businesses, corporate customers, merchants, brokers and third parties and 30-second know your customer (KYC) for individual customers or related business parties.
The firm also enables data portability, providing a single KYB/KYC journey with appropriate encryption and consent management tools.
In May this year, it received a “multi-million dollar” investment in a round led by HSBC Asset Management’s alternative business, HSBC Alternatives. It also names Standard Chartered’s investment arm, SC Ventures, among its investors.
Founded in 2013, Chekk has customers across Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
