Following the successful completion of the latest financing round announced in December, the startup for passwordless authentication solutions is now building up its sales team, in addition to other central roles. Shery Ghahraman will be the new Senior Sales Executive at Hanko and takes over the lead for worldwide enterprise sales development.
Shery Ghahraman joins from US-based identity specialist OneLogin, where she was responsible for the DACH sales activities. In total, she has over 12 years of sales experience within SaaS companies. Felix Magedanz, founder and CEO of Hanko, is pleased about the addition: "With Shery, we are gaining a very experienced sales strategist. With her, we can take the next step to building a successful sales organisation.”

I’m looking forward to helping with that”, says Shery Ghahraman.
In addition to the enterprise solution, which addresses especially banks and larger corporations, Hanko also offers a self-service solution for developers and smaller businesses with a free entry-level price tier.
