Equity crowdfunding platform for healthcare RedCrow announced on Thursday it has appointed former senior vice president and deputy general counsel to USAA, Chris Laia, as its new general counsel and chief compliance officer.
According to RedCrow, Laia will oversee the platform’s legal operations and offer expertise in navigating the complexities of both Title II and III of the JOBS Act, along with the website’s involvement in the fintech, healthcare, startup, investing, and fundraising spheres. He will also be in charge with advising RedCrow on best business practice, corporate governance, and regulation.
Brian Smith, CEO of RedCrow, stated:
“Chris Laia has already had a remarkable career and we are honored to have him on our team to guide us through our growth, our successes, and our challenges.”
Jerry Harrison, Co-founder of RedCrow commented:
“Chris is a great addition to our team; he is extremely well credentialed but it’s his willingness to help others that most impresses me.”
“I joined RC because I believe in the management team and its vision of bringing a niche focus to the equity crowdfunding space. By focusing today’s efforts on one vertical, healthcare companies, we will be able to better serve RedCrow companies and the RedCrow crowd. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to be part of a business in a new industry whose focus is on helping other startups grow. I am certain that as a team, we will bring RedCrow to the forefront of the equity crowdfunding industry.”
“Laia joining the team is a huge step for RedCrow as we move forward with Title II and III of the JOBS Act. We have no doubt that his expertise will greatly lend to our overall success, and the featured companies on our platform.”
