Blockchain Transactions Platform Zilliqa Names En Hui Ong As Biz Dev Headbr>
Zilliqua, a platform that seeks to expand blockchain throughput to rival that of major credit cards, has named formerJP Morgan exeutive En Hui Ong to head business development.
“The biggest draw for me is the team,” said Ong. “In blockchain, a young and evolving space, the Zilliqa team is very differentfrom most projects out there. The core team is tight knit, mostly from research backgrounds, and I value the professionalism.”
Before joining Zilliqa, Ong worked in financial services, most recently as part of the Intermediary Sales Team at JPMorgan Asset Management, covering pension funds, insurance companies, and banks in Singapore. Before that she spent four years at BlackRock where she was in a sales role marketing ETFs and funds to intermediaries in Southeast Asia. She speaks fluent Japanese, Chinese and English.
“En Hui is an incredible candidate and she instantly fits in perfectly with the Zilliqa team,” said Xinshu Dong, CEO of Zilliqa. “We are absolutely thrilled that she decided to join our project and bring her skills and expertise to our project. It’s a testament to the potential of our technology and blockchain in general that we are able to hire such a qualified person to join our team directly from JPMorgan.”
Originally developed by a team of researchers at the National University of Singapore, Zilliqa is based on the technology of blockchain sharding, and will allow for a high throughput public blockchain platform that is both secure and scalable.
