Securrency, a blockchain-based financial and regulatory technology provider, has selected Nadine Chakar to serve as CEO. Prior to joining Securrency, she served as EVP and head of State Street Digital, according to a press release.
Dan Doney, founder and former CEO of Securrency, will step down as CEO to focus on technology and commercialization and will take on the role of CTO.
“The financial services industry is at a critical tipping point as it tokenizes regulated real-world assets and automates legacy financial processes using the power of blockchain technology,” Chakar said in the release. “The Securrency team has done a remarkable job of developing the most robust technology on the market. As the new CEO, my priority is to accelerate the commercialization of what is in essence the digital asset intelligence and interoperability foundation for major financial institutions and the global ecosystem. Dan Doney is a true visionary and innovator in the industry, and I look forward to working closely with him and the team to create the global digital assets marketplaces of the future.”
