Token Platform Securitize Names Carlos Domingo CEObr>
Securitize, a cloud platform that enables clients to issue security tokens, has named Carlos Domingo as its first CEO.
In his new role, Domingo will continue to promote Securitize’s capabilities with respect to providing services related to the Security Token Offering (STO) that allows democratized access to raising funds and capital.
Domingo will remain as general partner and member of the investment committee of SPiCE VC.
“Digitized securities are a paradigm shift in economics because it impacts nearly every type of ownership – we believe it is a multi-trillion dollar market,” said Domingo. “It’s a tremendous opportunity to lead an amazing Securitize team through this fast-moving and incredibly dynamic business environment. It’s now my sole focus to ensure the Securitize team has what they need to disrupt, redefine and democratize access to capital.”
“Security tokens are rapidly transforming equity and the capital markets, because they afford the owner the most direct and liquid economic interest in a company. They also expedite the delivery of proceeds for investors,” said Jamie Finn, president of Securitize. “Securitize has taken off very quickly since we launched earlier this year. We believe that the Securitize platform has facilitated more STOs than anyone providing similar services, which necessitates dedicated leadership and Carlos’ full focus. We are honored to have Carlos step into the CEO role.”
Domingo is also active as founder and managing partner of SPiCE VC, which developed Securitize and was the platform’s first customer.
A serial technology entrepreneur, Domingo has held various C-level positions at companies including du, Etihad Etisalat (Mobily), Telefonica R&D, Telefonica Digital, TokBox, Wayra, and Celartem Inc. (and its divisions Extensis and LizardTech).
Domingo holds a master’s in computer science from the Tokyo Institute of Technology, a bachelor’s and PhD in computer science from Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya in Barcelona and executive studies from Stanford University’s School of Busine ss.
