EQONEX appoints Chris Ashe as new CTO
Diginex Limited, which has been rebranded as EQONEX in line with the name of the exchange that it runs, has announced the appointment of Chris Ashe as the new Group CTO.
The company said that he would be leading all the upgrades, strategy, and planning for the company as far as technology is concerned and would also join the company’s Executive Committee.
Previously, Ashe had been the CTO at Mox, a virtual bank, where he had been responsible for planning and execution of the upgrades to the platform and also responsible for many features in the same. He has a total experience of over 20 years in the industry and he specializes in getting products to the market at speed.
Speaking on Mr. Ashe’s appointment, Richard Byworth, Chief Executive Officer at EQONEX Group, said: “We are delighted to have Chris join us at this critical time in the growth of our company. His expertise and experience position him perfectly to oversee the development and expansion of our entire ecosystem.
“He joins us as we enter a key new stage in the development of our business, as we start to offer increased productivity and new functions for our customers. Chris’s addition to the team will allow us to deliver faster and better on the broader vision of bringing digital assets to the world and providing institutions with a reliable and credible partner in this new asset class.”
At Mox, he was also responsible for managing the expectations of the various lead stakeholders and also worked closely with the regulators to ensure compliance. Hence, he pretty much has good experience with the overall product life cycle, scaling, and growth as well which will be a big asset for EQONEX.
Mr. Ashe added: “I have witnessed the incredible journey of EQONEX over the past year as the company established itself as the first listed crypto exchange operator, and I am thrilled to join and work at the forefront of the evolution of digital asset investing. I’m a firm believer in EQONEX’s mission to deliver a platform that sets the bar for fairness, governance, and innovation in the sector. As Chief Technology Officer, I am excited to build on the already formidable platform that EQONEX has, and to develop an industry-leading ecosystem for digital asset investors.”
The company said that Ashe would succeed Ray Hennessey as CTO as Ray had transitioned into a consultancy role within the company.
