Tony Smales is the visionary behind Forticode. The challenge he set himself was to build a solution that would provide identity authentication for anyone, in any location or language, using any device.
Tony has a diverse technology background which began at the age of 15 when he started working as a games programmer and also holds an honours degree in computer science where he specialised in Artificial Intelligence. A long career in IT consulting saw him gain experience in the Risk, Utility, Telecommunication and Insurance industries, eventually shifting to a development manager role for a wireless R&D company.
Tony has held senior, GM and CTO roles across Gaming, R&D and the Petrochemical industries where he has negotiated with and serviced some of the world’s largest companies.
