GlobalPlatform, the standard for secure digital services and devices, has announced the appointment of Ana Tavares Lattibeaudiere as Executive Director. Ana brings 20+ years of industry knowledge, non-profit strategy and business development to the role. After spells at Accenture, BCG and Deloitte, Ana spent 15 years in various roles at GSMA. Most recently she held the position of Head of North America, responsible for driving global initiatives across eSIM, future networks, IoT, RCS, identity and diversity.

“I am very pleased to welcome Ana as the Executive Director of GlobalPlatform,” comments Stéphanie El Rhomri, Chair of the GlobalPlatform Board of Directors. “With more than 62 billion GlobalPlatform-certified secure components deployed, GlobalPlatform’s legacy is an impressive one, helping diverse stakeholders to build, certify and manage billions of innovative digital services and devices. We’re coming out of a period of rapid change; in how we communicate, do business and interact with the world around us. As we look to the future of our industries and organization, Ana’s strategic IoT expertise and leadership skills will help us to realize our vision to p
rovide greater end-to-end security, privacy, simplicity and convenience for everyone.”
“I’m proud and honored to be joining GlobalPlatform at such an exciting time and when security has never been more important,” adds Ana. “As Stéphanie noted, we have made tremendous progress through the great contributions of our members across a vast number of industries in a relatively short lifetime. But we have important opportunities ahead of us as we look to deliver the foundations of security for new digital services and devices that will be part of our connected lives. I look forward to working with Stéphanie, the GlobalPlatform Board and our members to deliver real impact for consumers and businesses around the world.”

Ana succeeds Kevin Gillick who led the organization for 15+ years. Over that time, GlobalPlatform evolved from its origins in standardizing smartcards and secure elements, to standardize trusted execution environments, offer globally recognized certification. In recent years, the organization has moved to support the IoT ecosystem with key initiatives including its Device Trust Architecture for accessing secure services within a device; the IoTopia Framework for secure launch and management of connected devices; and the SESIP Methodology for IoT device certification.
