Encompass Corporation appoints Nynke Postma as Head of Business Development

Encompass Corporation, a leader in Corporate Digital Identity (CDI), has appointed Nynke Postma, the founder and former CEO of Blacksmith KYC, as the new Head of Business Development for Asia and the Middle East.

Encompass Corporation specialises in Corporate Digital Identity (CDI), offering solutions that streamline identity verification and risk mitigation for corporate customers. The company leverages real-time data from global public sources and private customer information to create comprehensive digital risk profiles.

Nynke Postma, who joins as Head of Business Development, brings over 20 years of experience in financial services. She previously held senior roles at ING, managing programme and product development, software delivery, and fraud management. Before founding Blacksmith KYC in 2017, Postma led a strategic merger of daily banking operations at ING, impacting 11 million retail customers across the Netherlands and Belgium.

Postma will be based in Singapore and report to Chief Revenue Officer Steve Hadaway. In her new role, she aims to maximise the potential and value that customers experience through Encompass’ CDI product propositions.

Encompass recently acquired Blacksmith KYC and CoorpID, innovations led by ING, enhancing its ability to tackle identification and verification challenges for corporate and institutional clients.

Blacksmith KYC was established as part of ING Labs Singapore with a mission to enhance Know Your Customer (KYC) processes for the financial industry. The platform allows banks to configure their Customer Due Diligence (CDD) requirements within a Digital Policy Manager, streamlining data collection and automating KYC processes to provide analysts with valuable risk insights.

Steve Hadaway, Chief Revenue Officer at Encompass Corporation, said, “I am thrilled to welcome Nynke as our new Head of Business Development, and excited to see her extensive industry background and knowledge bring significant benefits to our customer base. Her passion and vision for Blacksmith KYC led to great success, as she was the driving force behind the growth of a product that brings tangible efficiencies, with the next chapter of that journey only beginning at Encompass.

“We are committed to offering the very best, both in terms of innovation and expertise, as we move forward with our CDI mission, and bringing someone of Nynke’s calibre on board is another milestone that shows there is much to be positive about for the business and our customers in the months and years to come.”

Nynke Postma, Head of Business Development at Encompass Corporation, added, “I am excited and proud to be able to continue the Blacksmith story as part of Encompass. Having witnessed the possibilities of the platform and the value it holds for banks as we brought the product to life, I relish the chance to take it even further as part of the Encompass team, creating a diversified product portfolio and competitive offering tailored to our customers’ needs. At Encompass, we have all the ingredients to create game-changing outcomes with the delivery of CDI.”

Encompass enables fast, accurate identity validation and verification of corporate customers and a gold-standard approach to KYC.
