GENEVA, March 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- WISeKey announced the appointment of Cristina Valls-Taberner Muls as a member of its Advisory Board, as part of the new approach of the company to bring leading young entrepreneurs to work at its advisory board. The committee, chaired by Carlos Moreira, WISeKey founder and CEO, provides advice to WISeKey's senior management regarding matters of strategic business development and future revenue growth.

Cristina Valls-Taberner Muls is an entrepreneur with over 10 years of senior operations and chief executive experience working with financial and technology companies and has one of the best networks in the world. She has worked with leading international brands and created her own luxury brand, Chris&Cris, where, as CEO and president, she has guided the company through several phases of growth. Today they are redesigning their business model to integrate internet technologies and luxury brands in a project.

Cristina said, "I am delighted to join this prestigious advisory committee and to develop an innovative project that combines Chris&Cris with an ultra-exclusive social network that will not only ensure interoperability among its members through the integration of wearable technologies, but also offer protection for the brand from counterfeiters".

Carlos said, "Too few women serve on the boards and advisory boards in European companies. With three women now serving on its board and advisory board, WISeKey is showing its commitment to gender equality. I am delighted to welcome Cristina, where we are looking forward to working with her and benefiting from her strong leadership and entrepreneurial experience to advise WISeKey on its strategy in relation to the luxury market and increasing the WISeID brand protection community."
