Tom Jessop, former Managing Director of Technology Business Development, will be joining Chain as President. During his tenure at Goldman Sachs, Jessop primarily focused on creating and investing in technology platforms for capital markets.
“Blockchain technology is market technology, re-imagined,” said Ludwin. “Commercializing this breakthrough model requires forging deep partnerships across a market and driving change that benefits every participant. Tom has done exactly that, repeatedly, over his tenure leading business development and strategic investments at Goldman Sachs. He is an accomplished leader who brings an impressive combination of operational expertise coupled with widespread recognition as a strategic thinker in the financial technology, capital markets, and blockchain industries. We are thrilled to have him join our management team.”
