 Security for crypto assets firm Ledger has expanded its US presence to New York City and appointed Demetrios Skalkotos to lead global business unit operations for Ledger Vault, which will be headquartered from the new office.

Ledger is headquartered in Paris and has a team of 150 who are developing a variety of products and services to safeguard cryptocurrency assets for individuals and companies. This includes the Ledger hardware wallet line.

Pascal Gauthier, President of Ledger, said New York City “is the center of the financial world, hence having our Ledger Vault operations based in the region was a natural fit. Having spent his whole career working as a leader in enterprise and financial services products, Demetrios Skalkotos is the perfect candidate to bring Ledger Vault to life and oversee its continued growth.”

Skalkotos called Ledger Vault “digital plumbing” in his remarks. “As crypto becomes more widely adopted, it is critical that we scale enterprise-level solutions accordingly. The Ledger Vault does just that — we are the necessary digital plumbing that will provide security custody management to the industry.”
