Our aim is to modernise identity for the connected internet era and provide a smart solution for distributing and controlling individual identity assets.

Having joined the company with a unique depth of knowledge in the payments and software development industry, Mark’s contribution is paramount to leading the team towards a brilliant future.

David Thomas, Co-founder and Head of Product

Having co-founded ThisIsMe with Juan Furmie in 2013, David was originally the Chief Technical Officer of ThisIsMe. When Armond Furmie joined the team as CTO, David became the Head of Product, with the specific goal of ensuring the ThisIsMe solution is primed not only as an engaging tool for individuals to manage their identities, but also as an indispensable link on the merchant chain, allowing KYC, AML and CRM systems to be integrated seamlessly into the day-to-day operations of our clients.

Juan Furmie, Co-founder and CTO

Juan Furmie is a founding partner of ThisIsMe. After completing high school, he opted to dive straight in to technology, having been excited by the possibilities on the rise in the late 90s and early 2000s, despite the bubble’s eventual burst. With over 13 years business and e-Commerce experience through established and start-up organisations in various markets across the globe, Juan revels in discovering new applications for connective technology. Since co-establishing ThisIsMe, Juan has applied his end-user centric approach and proficiency in e-Commerce practices to good use. His goal is to ensure a moral responsibility towards sensitive data in a connected world.
