RELATED TOPICS​

Matrixport, Asia’s fastest growing digital assets financial services platform, has expanded its management team with recent appointments of Justin Buitendam and Omid Zadeh as Directors of Business Development & Sales. 

These senior hires are part of a wider talent acquisition programme to scale-up capabilities in support of Matrixport’s global expansion.
 
Based in Australia, Buitendam is a senior addition to the business development team in Asia, while Zadeh will lead business development in EMEA, based in the United Kingdom.
 
Having held senior trading and portfolio management roles with companies including Macquarie Bank, Transmarket Group, RKR Capital and Refco, Buitendam has over two decades of derivatives experience. He brings with him a wealth of experience driving business development and will collaborate across Matrixport’s global network to shape business development strategy and engagements.
 
With over 15 years of experience in electronic trading and multi-asset sales across FX, equities, fixed income and futures, and options derivatives, Zadeh has held senior sales positions at ICAP and the London Stock Exchange and will drive Matrixport’s institutional client strategy and engagement in EMEA.
 
John Ge, Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer, Matrixport, says: “We are excited to welcome Justin and Omid. Strengthening our international management bench strength is key as we deliver on our vision of being the one-stop digital assets platform of choice. With their combined experience, they will play important roles in onboarding the next global wave of cryptocurrency users.”
 
Following its successful Series C fundraising round and a valuation of over USD1 billion, Matrixport plans to continue its global expansion and to secure licenses to operate in more jurisdictions. The company’s exponential growth has been driven by robust technology capabilities and innovative product offerings, such as the world’s first crypto dual currency product.
 
Most recently, Matrixport launched its “Lite” version interface on the Matrixport App that is aimed at enhancing the customer experience for those who have recently embarked on their crypto investing journey.
