HERNDON, Va., Dec. 2, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- CertiPath, the trusted credentialing authority, today announced Tina Davis, seasoned business and accounting expert, has joined the company as chief financial officer. As CFO she will be responsible for the accounting, financial, legal and administrative operations of the company. The news comes at an exciting point for CertiPath, as the company continues its rapid growth and expands its high-assurance identity services into the physical access control (PACS) space.
"The convergence of physical and logical access into a single-credential system is opening the door to significant process and productivity improvements that reduce costs and reduce risks for businesses," said Jeff Nigriny, president of CertiPath. "CertiPath is seeing rapid growth because it is on the forefront of high-assurance identity credentials that span physical and logical systems like PIV and PIV-I. Adding Tina and her strong background of helping business scale efficiently and quickly puts CertiPath in the perfect position to continue its expansion."

Before joining CertiPath, Davis most recently served the last five years as CEO and President for Accounting & Business Consulting, Inc. where she specialized in providing financial leadership for start-up companies. Prior to that, Davis served as the Director of Finance for Cox Communications of Northern Virginia for six years.
