We’re growing!

August 2, 2023

We’re very pleased to welcome Kevin, Stephen and Sushil to Tokenovate!

The journey of a start-up goes up and down. There are times of excitement, and there are times of exhaustion. But one fascinating aspect of growing a new business is all the great people you meet. And all the great people you are lucky to hire and work with.

Over the last few weeks, three excellent people have joined our company in key positions:

  • Kevin Harkin, as a principal engineer,
  • Sushil Khuttan, as our head of QA, and
  • Stephen Ashworth, as our head of platform.

Collectively they bring a wealth of wisdom and knowledge, not just from the fintech and trading industries, but in software development, testing and management too. They have over the years honed their skills and fine tuned their craft at companies such as UBS, TP ICAP, Citi and SunGard, as well as at other start-ups and scale-ups. And they have plenty of blockchain expertise too!

Our CEO and Founder Richard Baker said

“We are delighted to welcome Kevin, Sushil and Stephen to our growing team. Their expertise and experience will help us move forward faster and solve issues associated with trading lifecycle events. It is also an important validation for us as a business to be able to attract such top-talent to join our start-up journey. It feels really great!”.

Every day we are working to solve hard problems. Our vision is ambitious. Our goals are challenging. We are reshaping traditional financial market infrastructure, introducing groundbreaking new solutions for smart legal contracts that will streamline and improve post-trade workflows (among other things), and we are doing it as one team. The ride is fun!

If you are interested in joining us, get in touch on our Teams page.

Missing in the picture, everyone (apart from Luke).
