Ambrosus, the blockchain ecosystem for the supply chain, has appointed former JP Morgan Vice President Dr. Joseph Chen-Yu Wang as a Project Manager.
Combining high-tech sensors, blockchain technology, and smart contracts to assure the quality, safety, and origins of essential products, Ambrosus is officially endorsed by EIT Food and SQS (Swiss Quality and Safety Association) and has received financial backing from the Government of the Canton of Vaud, Switzerland.
“Given that cutting-edge technology is the pillar of the Ambrosus project and vision, it is of the utmost significance that we continue to work alongside the most influential minds in the space,” said Angel Versetti, the CEO of Ambrosus. “The Ambrosus mission is unattainable without a sound foundation of insight and experience, and Dr Wang will be an integral contributor. Dr Wang’s stellar body of work to date will enable our vision to be implemented and managed expertly, and Ambrosus is incredibly eager to bring him on as a Project Manager.”
Most recently the Chief Scientist for Bitquant Research Laboratories in Hong Kong, Dr Wang was responsible for the project management and development of scalable open source trading systems. Prior to this role, Dr Wang worked with Mageia as an Open Source Scientific Developer. Additionally, the former Vice President of Front Office Quantitative Analytics and Equity Derivatives at JP Morgan Chase, Dr Wang issued the first smart contract used in a business transaction in Hong Kong.
“Ambrosus is meeting the rapidly growing consumer demand for supply chain and market transparency. The innovative and emerging technologies being employed by Ambrosus have the potential to transform traditional supply chains and evolve global markets. I am excited to join such a sophisticated and forward-thinking project,” said Dr Wang.
Dr Wang joins Ambrosus along with eleven new appointments including three R&D assistants for the activities at the EPFL Innovation Park (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne Campus), five additions to the business development team, and three administrative/legal assistants.
