Bosonic Digital Ramps Up Staffing with Host of Additions
Posted by Colin Lambert. Last updated: October 6, 2021
Digital assets clearing and settlement platform Bosonic Digital has named three senior industry veterans to its advisory board and revealed no fewer than six staff additions.
The hires across technology, product and business development, and sales are in place to support and scale up the growth trajectory for Bosonic due to increased demand for the critical infrastructure it provides to eliminate crypto counterparty credit and settlement risk, the firm says.
The advisory board has been strengthened with the addition of three former Currenex executives in Sean Gilman, co-founder of trading firm HC Tech and former CTO of Currenex; Richard Farrell, former global head of sales for e-exchange at State Street and currently managing partner at RKF Insights; and Chad Parris, former CTO at State Street Currenex who is currently chief strategy officer for XChangePoint.
“The strategic counsel that our new Senior Advisors bring is essential to our plans and positioning as we continue to enter into strategic ventures and attract new partners to execute on our next phase of growth,” says Rosario Ingargiola, CEO of Bosonic Digital. “Bringing individuals with such pedigree on board is testament to their belief in our prospects and the critical role we play in building a sustainable crypto markets infrastructure.”
The six team member additions are across key facets of Bosonic’s business, including technology, to strengthen its proprietary technology stack and patent pending software. Former senior software engineer at Cantor Fitzgerald and Citadel, Ted Elkington, joins as a senior engineer to the high frequency trading (HFT) team.
Gaston Catta joins as principal engineer, devops and systems bringing experience from General Atlantic, State Street and Teladoc, while Leonardo Cardoso rounds out the technology hires as a senior software engineer, also bringing HFT software and infrastructure credentials to the team, most recently at Kapital Trading.
Bosonic also named three senior directors; Uri Lerman in project and product management, Joe Tuccio in business development and Jesse Bruno in sales, bringing, the firm says, complementary skillsets to foster better client service and offerings and increase the breadth and depth of Bosonic’s client base.
Lerman also a former managing director at State Street Currenex was most recently a broker segment manager at OneZero. Tuccio was most recently global head of institutional FX at LPS Partners with prior roles as managing director at Nukkleus and director at Noble Bank. As already reported by The Full FX, Bruno was formerly a director at Integral and vice president at State Street Currenex.
The six hires report to CEO Ingargiola, who now oversees a team of 25 technologists and engineers.
“As we begin to engage in our largest capital raise to date, our bolstered team and advisory board puts us in a strong position to continue to disrupt the status quo and improve the experience for institutional participants in digital assets,” says Tony Kiehn, president of Bosonic Digital.
