Cryptocurrency exchange Zipmex welcomes two C-level executives as part of its push towards Australia as its next market.
Scot Cheung joins the company as Chief Operating Officer (COO) and will focus on expansion in Australia, while Nicolas Keravec has been appointed Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and will focus on the firm’s financial planning
Scot joins Zipmex from Uber where he managed the transport and food delivery centralised operations across APAC, and was instrumental in scaling regional teams as the company grew from a startup in his seven years as Head of Central Operations. Plus he has more than 12 years of experience in helping companies scale and expand worldwide, and had previously co-founded an affiliate marketing platform for China’s e-commerce market.
Nicolas served as Managing Director and Group Chief Financial Officer at Rocket Internet (Asia), and is a seasoned venture capitalist and tech entrepreneur and business leader with 15 years of cross border experience in scalable business models.
“Both Scot and Nicolas have a wealth of global experience and expertise in scaling and managing companies across Asia, which will be critical to our own growth in the region. In particular, Scot will be focusing on Australia, our newest market, where we believe now is the right time to ramp up operations by delivering superior customer experience, developing innovative products, and placing high importance on security. Nicolas will play a critical role in managing the company’s capital deployment and expansion plans in all our markets, following the success of our recent fundraising round.” said Marcus Lim, CEO and co-founder of Zipmex.
With US$41 million raised from its Series B funding round last month, Zipmex plans to expand the company’s presence aggressively in its four key markets by launching a host of new earn and spend products, form partnerships to build on payments, and build its technology infrastructure to support growth and enhance security.
