According to a report from Finance Magnates on February 25th, Marco Lim, a former Goldman Sachs executive, was recently appointed to be a managing partner at MaiCapital, a blockchain-based company in Hong Kong. Mr. Lim served at Forex Capital Markets, Credit Suisse, and Deutsche Bank in foreign exchange sales prior to MaiCapital according to his LinkedIn profile. Lim will bring his marketing and sales expertise to MaiCapital to develop the company further. Managing Partner and Co-Founder of MaiCapital, Benedict Ho, spoke with Finance Magnates about Mr. Lim. Marco will focus mostly on establishing strategic partnerships at MaiCapital and its surrounding group companies by using his marketing skills. He has a long-standing relationship with the markets and with investment banking, both of which will boost MaiCapital’s position in the digital asset management world. Mr. Ho believes that Marco Lim is the right person for the job due to his extensive sales and marketing experience and is proud to have him on board. The digital currency and blockchain space have seen numerous appointments of individuals who worked elsewhere in the traditional finance sector. Back in early February, Etienne Amic, a former JP Morgan Chase executive, was hired on as a CEO for Vakt, which is a blockchain commodity post-trading company. Amic will be primarily responsible for commodities trading at Vakt which will cut out paperwork by digitizing physical commodities trading. It has also been noted that ErisX, a cryptocurrency exchange, appointed three veterans of the financial industry from the CBOE (Chicago Board Options Exchange), YouTube, and Barclays to fill executive positions within the company. These new appointees include Robert Thrash, who will serve as the company’s chief operating officer (COO), Arnold Connell, who will serve as the head of infrastructure, and John Denza, who will be a business development executive for ErisX.
