Matt Bugni was recently named chief executive officer of AWARE.
Bugni joined AWARE about eight years ago, taking on jobs with increasing responsibility over the years, most recently serving as chief information officer.
The search for AWARE’s new CEO began in September. During the selection process, the board of directors reviewed a significant number of qualified applicants for the position before naming Bugni the new CEO.
Bugni’s appointment comes after the retirement of former CEO Larry Noonan earlier this year. Noonan served as AWARE’s CEO during the last 30 years. Richard Saravalli held the CEO position during the interim, for the last 10 months.
