Dr. Demetrios Zamboglou has left Credit Financier Invest (CFI) where he had served in the capacity of the group’s Chief Operating Officer (COO) for more than two years.

Dr Demetrios Zamboglou

Zamboglou is assuming his new role as chief executive officer at Doto, a newly formed provider of financial and investment solutions for both retail and corporate clients.

Doto is a registered trademark of Berth Holdings Limited, a UK holding company of Vasby Capital Markets Limited, Merceron Capital Limited, and Weybridge Financial Markets Limited. Vasby Capital Markets Limited is licensed by the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission, while its sister company Merceron Capital Limited is regulated by the Financial Services Commission, Mauritius.

Zamboglou brings nearly 18 years of experience to Doto and will lead the company’s management team after working in a variety of fintech companies in operations and C-level positions.

Zamboglou has been assuming an advisory role with Genesis ‎Vision, which operates a decentralized trust management platform ‎built on Blockchain technology and smart contracts, for nearly three years. He also held an analogous position at blockchain startup ThePower.io since June 2018.

Prior to that, Zamboglou spent a little over one year at UK-based decentralized bank BABB, preceded by five months as a Chief Operating Officer at ICON Capital Reserve.

Other stops also include serving as European CEO and global chief business development officer at Swiss blockchain startup Lykke Corp. He holds a PhD degree in Behavioural Finance from King’s College London.

Despite his many crypto-related roles, Mr. Zamboglou is a FX and CFD veteran with over a decade’s experience in trading, risk management and operations. He spent the bulk of his career, which dates back to 2005, within the retail industry, having held senior positions at Alpari (UK), ForexClub, ForexTime and also setting up his own FX brokerage zebraFX in 2012 before selling the business in 2015.

Earlier in March, we caught up with Dr. Demetrios who provided contextualization to the thesis that cryptocurrencies as an investment vehicle have become a point of interest for many businesses.

For months now, Zamboglou had been talking about integrating cryptocurrency into the business. But his interaction with digital assets dates back to many years before joining CFI, namely when he was European CEO and chief business development officer at Swiss blockchain exchange Lykke Corp.
