Portland, OR – Jan. 30, 2024 – SheerID, the global leader in identity verification for commerce, is celebrating record-breaking revenue growth of 273% in EMEA, signing significant new customers, building new partnerships, and winning multiple industry awards, as it heads into another period of increased momentum in 2024.
“2023 was a banner year for SheerID, and we’re just getting started,” said Francois Rychlewski, VP Sales, EMEA, SheerID. “In 2024, we plan to double down on our efforts to serve clients in additional EMEA markets. We’re also excited about our recent expansion in several industries like fashion, grocery, and airlines, to name a few, and we look forward to continued growth in multiple new sectors.”
EMEA Momentum Highlights
In 2023, SheerID added large European customers such as Frasers Group and Lufthansa.
In October, Frasers Group - a collection of some of the world’s most iconic brands, including Sports Direct, House of Fraser, Flannels, Jack Wills, USC, and Cruise - began partnering with SheerID to provide exclusive offers to students.
“We’re excited to partner with SheerID to provide exclusive offers to students,” said Ross Pepper, Head of Performance Marketing at Frasers Group. “Students are working hard to complete their education and build a future for themselves, and we want to make that a little easier for them while growing our student base. SheerID has been incredible to work with and we’re looking forward to continued growth in the student sector.”
“Right now we’re specifically focusing on students,” said Matthew Donaldson, Digital Sales Manager, Asia Pacific, of Lufthansa. “SheerID has helped us provide a competitive offer that students often share with their peers which allows us to grow our student market while ensuring that only students redeem these offers.”
To access these exclusive offers, students must verify their eligibility through SheerID, the identity verification platform used by hundreds of leading brands to launch exclusive gated offers for students, teachers, healthcare professionals, military members, first responders, seniors, and more in multiple countries. Online verification is instant and once completed, eligible students can take advantage of the savings.
