"These leaders bring their extensive experience and knowledge of the business community to WISeKey, and will help us set the right strategy for future growth. Our membership already includes a number of business luminaries and each of them brings vast experience in a variety of businesses from all around the globe. I thank all of our new strategy committee for their willingness to contribute their knowledge and experience to WISeKey."
"I am glad to cooperate with an organization as dynamic and innovative as WISeKey and help it to realize its potential. It is a pleasure for me to join WISeKey's Advisory Board and assist the company with the further expansion of its global reach into new markets," said Claude Béglé.

"I am honored and delighted to be joining and supporting WISeKey in introducing and systematizing innovative on-line solutions to better secure products and services in a vast array of Global Industries, particularly in the Telecom and Media sectors, obviously," said Serge Ferré.
One of the initial priorities of the strategy committee is to develop compelling business initiatives which will be implemented via WISeKey's existing strategic partners. These individuals are helping the company to identify the direction of global security markets and are providing strategic advice on how the company can most effectively and efficiently assist business in the sector.
As WISeKey, just recently nominated by the World Economic Forum as a Global Growth Company, expands its business worldwide to support enterprises in industries such as Telcos, eHealth, eGovernment, financial services, secure communications and professional services, the advice and guidance from the Strategy Committee will be paramount to helping the company to establish itself in these sectors. Reporting to the WISeKey board of directors, the Strategy Committee will meet regularly throughout the year to provide advice and recommendations, but will not have any legal or formal responsibilities. These 3 new members will join the existing Strategy Committee group, which includes, amongst others, Lenny Shrank, former CEO SWIFT, Mario Garnero, President of Brasilinvest and Fernando Chico Pardo, CEO Promecap.
