Seedrs, the leading equity crowdfunding platform, announced two new appointments as part of a strategic plan to aggressively scale-up the business over the post-Brexit era.
The two new top managers are Jeff Kelisky, who led the growth of pioneering online mapping business Multimap and then sold it to Microsoft and will act as Chief Operating Office; and Ricardo Brízido, the former Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of Rocket Internet’s Jovago and online beauty pioneer LIB Group, who will act as Chief Technology Officer.
Both will report to the CEO and Co-Founder of Seedrs, Jeff Lynn, who said:
I am beyond delighted to welcome Jeff Kelisky and Ricardo Brízido to the Seedrs management team. We hired both after long and exceptionally competitive recruitment processes, and I believe each is world-class at what he does. I am very much looking forward to working with Jeff as a partner in running the Seedrs business, and I know that with our technology in Ricardo’s hands we will remain one of the most innovative fintech companies in Europe.
Earlier in 2016 Seedrs launched a shop in Berlin to bolster European presence after the openings of Amsterdam and Lisbon.
