UK headquartered cryptocurrency mining firm recently made an announcement revealing that it has hired a new executive to serve as its Chief Strategy Officer. According to statement released by the firm, the newly hired executive is an industry veteran with nearly 16 years of experience in financial service industry. The firm has hired Ramy Soliman to serve as Chief Strategy Officer who served as Chief Executive Officer of UK based prime brokerage service provider Stater Global Market prior to joining GMOZ. Stater Global Market was once a market leading Prime Brokerage operator but has since fallen from grace as the firm had to close down most of its business owing to parent firm’s decision to stop funding its subsidiaries business operations. Since the firm’s decision to shut down its business operations which was announced earlier this year, most of the firms’ executives have parted ways with the firm leaving Stater Global with less than 10 executives as it heads towards its closing later next month according to details provided in its LinkedIn profile.
