WASHINGTON, Aug. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Babel Street, the world's data-to-knowledge company, announced today the appointment of Scott Hansen as senior vice president of International Business Development. Based at the company headquarters, Hansen will report directly to Babel Street President Stephen Coakley.
Hansen's new role will focus primarily on the development and expansion of strategic solutions to help Babel Street better serve their international clientele. He will oversee expansion as Babel Street extends its services into Canada, the United Kingdom and the Middle East.
With over 15 years of experience, specifically in counterterrorism and counterintelligence, Hansen comes to Babel Street from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) as an international intermediary.
