|Colin Wallis – Executive Director
Being based in New Zealand adds significant challenges of distance and time, but that hasn’t hindered Colin noticeably. With typical Kiwi pragmatism, he has cultivated an enviable understanding of North American and European identity programs, and a corresponding network of relationships with key stakeholders around the world.
In his new role Colin will relocate from New Zealand, reflecting Kantara’s global membership and the importance of Europe to its assurance system and emergent privacy-enabled suite of tools.
Colin is respected in the ‘identerati’ community for a contribution that is technically deep and geographically global. It includes work in:
In the United States Identity Ecosystem Steering Group (IDESG), he is the stakeholder delegate for interoperability at Management Council/Board level, and currently Chairs the International Co-ordination Committee.
