Robert Ilijas – CEO and Founder at Identyum

Robert has been in IT managerial positions in financial industry for more than 16 years.

For the first 11 years, he climbed the corporate ladder in mainstream banking, in the final step being an executive director of an IT division for 5 years. At some point, he decided to switch teams and joined the fintech space – so he spent the next 5 years as a CTO of a successful Swedish KYC fintech startup.

After successfully playing for both the defending mainstream banking team and the attacking fintech team, during late 2018, he decided to create a service that both of the teams need. Even more so, the service that is needed by every company going digital, either within or outside of financial industry.

This was the start of IDENTYUM – the digital identity platform.
