Geisenberger led a task force that prompted legislative and regulatory changes that enabled the creation of a uniform electronic notary system used by banking and legal officials across the country. A law that took effect Feb. 1 allows officials to become Delaware electronic notaries and eliminate paper records as they conduct business for more than 800,000 corporations, including more than 60 percent of the Fortune 500, which call Delaware home.

“Under Rick’s guidance, Delaware will lead the country in developing standards that will allow for a trusted, secure and legally enforceable exchange of legal documents designed to protect the public and businesses from fraud and forgery,” said John Carney, former lieutenant governor of Delaware and chairman of the Information Assurance Task Force and Delaware Science and Technology Council.
