Daniel-Carl Eigenmann, founder of leading wealth management firm Iko Capital AG, is joining the Vancouver-based cryptocurrency company’s board. Also joining the board is current NetCents CFO Christopher Cherry.
The additions come as board member and president Gordon Jessop announced his retirement effective December 31, 2019.
Jessop played a key role over the last six years in taking the company from a privately held traditional payment processor to a leader in cryptocurrency payment processing. "The decision to retire is never an easy one but the decision was made easier by my confidence in the NetCents leadership team, technology, and growth trajectory,” he said in a statement. “I am certain that NetCents will continue to thrive."
New member Eigenmann boasts a 36-year career in the financial markets, with experience at UBS Zurich and wealth management firm Liechtensteinishce Ladesbank Vaduz.
"It's with great pleasure that I have accepted to join NetCents' Board of Advisors," Eigenmann said.
"Since I've been involved with the company, I've been impressed by both their platform and recent growth. I believe that they have positioned themselves to disrupt the payments industry and become a global leader driving cryptocurrency adoption and innovation."
CFO Cherry joined the company in November 2018 with over 15 years of experience in multiple public companies.
NetCents recently inked its 50th partnership agreement for its payment processing platform.
