On Friday, Canadian fintech Katipult announced it has appointed Karim Teja as its new Chief Financial Officer. According to the company, Taja has more than 15 years of diversified financial business experience and held senior positions in rapidly growing technology companies in the medical, environmental and financial sectors. Speaking about Teja’s appointment, Brock Murray CEO of Katipult, stated:
“Karim is a tremendous addition to the Katipult team and we are excited to work closely with him. His wide-ranging experience in both public and private capital markets, proven track record, and transformational vision will be an asset to the company as we experience an expected period of high growth”.
“I am excited to be joining Katiput at an opportune time for the company. Katipult’s product fills a significant void in fintech compliance, and there is a great need for that capability in the burgeoning crypto and blockchain space. I am convinced that regulations around these financings will tighten resulting in a large opportunity and rapid adoption of Katipult’s compelling offering.”
The appointment of Teja comes just a few weeks after Katipult signed a MOU with Polymath to collaborate in a recording securities ownership and transmission development system that uses blockchain technology.
