Former UK e-Envoy Andrew Pinder Joins Entrust to Lead Government Initiatives

With Pinder, Entrust Strengthens Its Leadership in Global e-Government Initiatives

DALLAS, Oct. 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- While Entrust, Inc. has held a leadership position providing security solutions to governments around the world, today it adds a key ally in its mission to create trusted environments in which governments can evolve their online service offerings to be more citizen-centric. Andrew Pinder, the former e-Envoy for the government of the United Kingdom, today moves from member of the board of directors at Entrust to an executive role as Entrust senior vice president, global solutions. Pinder will join Entrust as a named executive officer effective immediately.

"During Andrew's tenure as e-Envoy, the United Kingdom received acclaim for becoming a leading e-government and e-business leader," said Entrust Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Bill Conner. "We were thrilled to have his counsel and expertise on our board of directors, and by joining us he can help lead our global government efforts on projects such as the move to e-passports, national ID cards and securing citizen identities and information."

As the United Kingdom's e-Envoy, Pinder spearheaded the Prime Minister's directive to bring Internet access to all British citizens and businesses by 2005. He also was responsible for forging stronger information networks in the British government and for enabling the U.K. to be a recognized leading e-Government and a leader in e-Business. Since his tenure as e-Envoy, Pinder has been a sought after international spokesperson and consultant on e-government issues.

"Even though I've been able to provide strategic counsel as a member of the board of directors for Entrust since 2004, I saw so much more I could do to help this leading company provide the needed assistance to governments around the world," said newly-named Entrust Senior Vice President, Global Solutions Andrew Pinder. "Creating a trusted environment where citizens know their identities are protected is a necessary first step for governments to move from government-centric to citizen-centric."

Before his appointment as e-Envoy in 2000, Pinder served as the head of Operations and Technology for Europe at Citibank and then moved to take a more global role. He also held positions as the Director of Operations and Technology at Prudential Corporation and as Director of Information Technology at the Office of Inland Revenue.

"While many governments have moved basic citizen services online, in most cases, these services are siloed, which frustrates citizens. The next step will be to break down the barriers between different government agencies and even governments of other countries to truly achieve the citizen-centric service model 'holy grail.' While this is a necessary metamorphosis, it requires a high level of trust for all parties involved," adds Pinder. "This is a transformation I know well, and I am pleased to join Entrust's quest to provide trusted environments for governments and citizens around the world."
