Multi-bank FX platform MillTech FX has appointed Gal Hochberg, a fintech executive, cybersecurity expert and serial entrepreneur, with over 15 years’ experience in the areas of cybersecurity, AI and machine learning, and blockchain, as a non-executive board member to its main UK operating company.
Hochberg co-founded Clear, a company automating settlement between the world’s largest telecommunication companies, and HiredScore, an AI HR company used by Fortune 500 companies. He has led cybersecurity advisory engagements with multinational corporations and also founded GetPensia, a social impact company, to reduce the fees low-income savers in Israel pay for their pension.
“Gal has a wealth of experience and is very well-respected in the industry, so we are very pleased he has joined the MillTechFX board,” says Eric Huttman, CEO of MillTechFX. “With the cybersecurity threat growing globally, his strong track record in developing secure systems and platforms will be crucial in helping ensure our defences remain as strong as possible. We look forward to working closely with Gal as we move to cut costs and streamline workflow for asset managers and corporate treasurers through our secure FX marketplace.”
Hochberg adds, “MillTechFX is a true fintech in that it found a major problem – asset managers and corporate treasurers getting a bad deal in their FX execution – and built a team with relevant experience and laser-focused, secure technology to tackle it. I have been very impressed by the platform and the team that Eric has built at MillTechFX. I look forward to helping the firm achieve its aim of creating a fairer FX market for all participants.”
