FREMONT, Calif. — April 18, 2019 — Identiv, Inc. (NASDAQ: INVE), a global provider of physical security and secure identification, has announced that the Board of Directors has nominated Robin R. Braun to be elected as a director at the company’s annual meeting of stockholders on May 29, 2019.
“As Identiv continues to grow in dynamic markets, it’s the right time to strengthen our Board. Retired Vice Admiral Braun brings the highest level of independence, integrity, and professionalism. She also brings extensive insights into the critical federal government sector, particularly in the Department of Defense (DoD). During the process of working with a leading executive search firm, we had the privilege of speaking with thought leaders and notable senior executives in both the government and commercial sectors of the security industry, including Presidential appointees, CEOs, and founders of leading companies in our space. Our Nominating Committee and Board universally supported Robin Braun based on her exceptional background, market insights, personal qualities, and excellent references. We look forward to continuing as a broader, diverse Board with the goal of enhancing stockholder value,” said Jim Ousley, Identiv Chairman.
Braun served a distinguished 37 year career in the U.S. Navy, retiring as a Vice Admiral. She brings extensive experience in leadership of large government organizations, strategic planning, international relations, and workforce development. Braun’s assignments as a Flag Officer include service at U.S. European Command in Stuttgart, Germany, Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Information Warfare, and Navy Recruiting Command. An early pioneer among women Naval Aviators, Braun was the first woman selected to serve as Commanding Officer of a Reserve Naval Aviation squadron. She was also the first woman to lead a Reserve Component of the Armed Forces when she was nominated for a third star and became the 13th Chief of the Navy Reserve in 2012. In this role, she led over 60,000 men and women supporting global operations in the aviation, maritime, security, special operations, cyber, and intelligence domains. With a dispersed workforce and facilities in all 50 states and territories, Braun also deployed the DoD’s first approved bring-your-own-device (BYOD) technology, delivering secure Common Access Card (CAC) enabled access to services, email, and information.
“It’s an honor to be nominated to Identiv’s Board and to have the opportunity to contribute to Identiv’s success in bringing high-security solutions to government and commercial applications globally,” said Braun. “Identiv has been a long-standing proponent of making secure technology accessible and convenient, keeping in mind the needs of the users in the field. As data and information become more pervasive and mission-critical at the same time, converging the solutions across physical and digital will become increasingly important.”
