New York, Aug. 16, 2018 — AlphaPoint, a global financial technology firm focused on asset digitization and digital asset networks, today announced Ned Myers as Head of Product. In this newly created role, Myers will be responsible for product strategy and execution as well as AlphaPoint’s marketing functions.
With over 25 years of proven experience in financial technology and securitization industries, Myers comes to AlphaPoint after leading the capital markets and government businesses for Black Knight Inc.’s Data & Analytics division. Myers has also spent two decades with Lewtan, a securitization data & software company where he held product, strategy, and business development responsibility as both its Chief Marketing Officer and General Manager, among other roles.
“As blockchain and distributed ledger technology continue to be adopted in ever-increasing ways in traditional financial markets, we are excited to have someone with such a depth of market knowledge, and we are excited to welcome Ned in this critical role,” said Salil Donde, AlphaPoint Chief Executive Officer.
“The transformation of global financial markets is well underway. While the use of blockchain technology has moved far beyond its initial use in cryptocurrencies, the opportunities and challenges now facing the market relate to the application of blockchain in the creation of securities tokens. I am excited to work with our clients to utilize blockchain solutions to drive this financial evolution,” said Myers. “AlphaPoint is unique in its capability to enable the digitization of assets through either private or public blockchain protocols and improve liquidity in the secondary market with its exchange technology.”
