Job Appointments | January 26, 2018 By:

Canadian FinTech Katipult has appointed Karim Teja as its chief financial officer. The appointment comes as Katipult will begin work with Polymath on securities ownership and transmission development system that uses blockchain technology.

Teja has more than 15 years of financial business experience, and has held senior positions in rapidly growing technology companies in the medical, environmental and financial sectors.

“Karim is a tremendous addition to the Katipult team and we are excited to work closely with him,” said Brock Murray CEO of Katipult. “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”.

Teja was also looking forward, noting that he joins 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.”
