BCB Group, a European leading provider of business accounts and trading services for the digital asset economy, has appointed Derek Rego as Chief Technology Officer (CTO).
Previously CTO of CreditEnable, Rego also held senior technology leadership roles for over 25-plus years with Citi, where his career spanned positions as Global Head of Treasury and Trade Solutions Technology and Global Electronic Banking Channels Head.
Rego joins BCB Group at a vital stage of a growth journey for the firm and brings a wealth of experience driving successful delivery of large transformation and growth programs solving complex business challenges using technology across large-scale enterprise and fintech organisations.
With a dedicated focus on institutional payment services, BCB Group provides business accounts, cryptocurrency and foreign exchange market liquidity for some of the world’s largest crypto-engaged financial institutions including Bitstamp, Coinbase, Galaxy, Gemini, Huobi and Kraken. BCB Group is the only dual-regulated institution of its kind to offer clients a complete end-to-end suite of payment processing, cryptocurrency trading and custody services accessible through a unified API-enabled platform, allowing clients to access a complete range of digital asset services in one place.
In January, BCB Group closed a USD4.5 million investment round to fund upcoming initiatives such as BCB Treasury, which aims to help companies invest in bitcoin as a treasury asset, BCB Yield Accounts and BCB Wealth Partners. Rego joins at a time when BCB is growing rapidly to help support BCB’s ambitious roadmap for democratising robust payments infrastructure for all.
Founder and CEO Oliver von Landsberg-Sadie says: “Derek is uniquely qualified for our scale-up stage of growth, having brought a number of large-scale fintech initiatives to life. We’re thrilled to welcome Derek on board to help us build the infrastructure which crypto-land really needs.”
