Automation technology provider Elenium Automation has appointed Paula Dwyer as its chairman.

"It is wonderful to have someone of Paula's calibre join our organisation," said Elenium co-founder and CEO Aaron Hornlimann.

Dwyer is also chair of Allianz and sits on the board of ANZ.

"I am very excited to support Elenium as it embarks on a mass market strategy – they're taking what they have built at scale for aviation through the VYGR products and applying it across industries, she said.

"It's a pivotal time for the company as the world reopens and the applications for its important technologies increase. I come from a background in highly regulated industries and one of my key objectives as chairman will be to ensure the safe delivery of Elenium's products - that data privacy, data management, and the ethical use of biometrics are key differentiators in our solutions."

The appointment follows a recent $10 million capital raising, led by new investor Thorney Investment Group. Existing investors NRMA and Acorn Capital also participated.

The funds will be used to drive the manufacture and roll-out of Faceway, Elenium's locally manufactured and massively scalable face recognition technology. Originally designed for airports, the system is being applied to other large-scale environments that require mobility and ticketing management, such as convention centres and a major but unspecified Australian sporting code.

Faceway provides touchless and secure access for patrons, without the need to use their phone at the point of entry.

"This is a very important time in Elenium's evolution, and I look forward to having strong, experienced leadership from the board and investors through this next growth phase," added Hornlimann.
