Blockchain Expansion at Global Remote Tech Is Goal of New CEObr>
Global Remote Technologies Ltd. has named Neil Stevenson-Moore as CEO of the company, which aggregates oil and gas field sensor data and is expanding into blockchain technology.
Former CEO Akash Patel praised his successor. “It was important for us to select a CEO who has the ability to thrive in both technology and business environments. Neil has been on the cutting edge of advanced algorithms, crypto-security, and consumer driven technologies at both the startup and corporate levels. His ability to deliver results today and to recognize the key opportunities in the future make him the perfect choice to lead us forward.”
A graduate of Princeton University, Stevenson-Moore was most recently leading medical technology companies, working with both Canadian federal and provincial governments to implement next-generation platforms that will improve patient outcomes, overall system security and life-saving technology applications.
Before that, he was the CEO and founder of StylePixi, a retail technology company that leverages artificial intelligence and advanced algorithms to disrupt the $25 trillion dollar retail market. Building off the success of StylePixi, he moved to London as the head of online giant Farfetch’s “Store of the Future.” Farfetch is recognized as a world leader in consumer retail technology and is currently valued in excess of $1.5B.
In both of these capacities, Stevenson-Moore has been on the forefront of the artificial intelligence, blockchain, and cryptocurrency evolutions.
“All of us geeks in the technology world have been waiting for blockchain and cryptocurrencies to reach an early tipping point beyond theoretical applications and early adopters,” said Stevenson-Moore “And unless you’ve been living under a rock, I don’t think there is a smart investor or forward looking company that isn’t starting to explore what blockchain can do to save their companies money and make them more secure. I am excited to step into this role and continue to build our team into one of the largest players in North America. We hope that our future asset acquisition in blockchain technology can be used jointly with our existing assets, thus benefiting our overall business.
