Veriff, a global identity verification provider, today announced that Tony Gatterman is Veriff’s new Head of Commercial Legal. Gatterman will support Veriff’s sales and partnership organizations, enhance the company’s contracting process for global customers, and help scale Veriff’s procurement arm.
Gatterman brings more than a decade of legal experience to his new role at Veriff. He joins Veriff from Calm, where he held the role of senior director of commercial legal. Prior to Calm, Gatterman spent five years at Slack in increasingly senior roles. As the second attorney hired at Slack, and the first commercial attorney, he scaled the commercial legal team to support the growth of the business from $30M to more than $900M (2021). Gatterman also spent more than four years at Salesforce supporting the commercial negotiations for salesforce.com’s early-stage and emerging businesses.
“As Veriff continues to expand globally, we want to ensure every aspect of our business effectively scales with it and is equipped to support the business and customers’ needs, especially our commercial legal capabilities,” said Kaarel Kotkas, founder and CEO of Veriff. “Tony has an amazing track record of helping tech companies successfully navigate the increasingly complex compliance environment and scale their legal functions. He will play a critical role in helping us achieve our mission of re-establishing trust online, and we’re honored to have him join our team.”
Committed to helping businesses of all sizes quickly and accurately verify customer identities and fight fraud online, Veriff has grown to a 550-person company that serves a global client base. The identity verification market continues to develop at a rapid pace as more companies and consumers recognize the need to instill trust and security in their online interactions. Gatterman’s appointment to head of commercial legal will support the company as it continues to scale to the position of unquestioned market leader in identity verification.
