RELATED TOPICS​

Elliptic, a specialist in cryptoasset risk management, has made two senior hires in its executive team in a move that will strengthen the business’s products and services offering following its USD60 million Series C funding announcement. 

Safiya Karsan has been appointed Chief Operating Officer and will be responsible for leading Elliptic’s  strategy, operations and people teams, focusing on driving the company’s continued expansion. Prior to her role at Elliptic, Karsan held leadership roles in several high growth companies across public and private sectors where she focused on scaling teams, operations, culture, and go-to-market strategy and execution.

“The opportunity for crypto is massive,” she says. “The rate of adoption amongst businesses is explosive and the market needs the right infrastructure to ensure it operates with crypto in a way that is safe, transparent and secure.” 

John Connolly has been appointed Chief Product Officer and is responsible for leading product strategy and management at Elliptic, with a focus on creating strategic value for customers through technology and data science-enabled innovations. Prior to joining Elliptic, Connolly held senior roles in public and privately held companies where he was focused on helping the businesses to scale.

“Cryptoassets are an increasingly important part of the mainstream economy,” says Connolly. “There is an amazing opportunity to support a safer, more innovative financial ecosystem through our blockchain-enabled, risk management products.”
