Former Representatives from Barclays, IMAX and Intermarket Join Overstock’s tZERO Team
The global leader in blockchain innovation for capital markets and subsidiary of parent company Overstock, tZERO has recently on-boarded three members to fill in leadership positions reports CoinDesk.
The three-team members include Brooke Navarro (formerly worked at Barclays), Michael Mougias (formerly employed with IMAX) and Alexandra Sotiropoulous (formerly worked at Intermarket).
Navarro, who will now serve as tZERO’s Head of Issuance, has been recognized as one of the fewest females in a managing director position at Barclays. This new chapter in her career is described as an
“opportunity [for her] to increase the speed and reach of the adoption of new technologies that will modernize the industry.”
Then we have Mougias, who will serve as tZERO’s Head of Investor Relations. This is supposedly the same role he held at Canadian movie theater brand, IMAX. In addition, it has been reported that he does not fall short on markets knowledge, as he has acquired the necessary expertise and skills from Ipreo (a capital markets firm).
Finally, there’s Sotiropoulos, who will serve as tZERO’s Head of Communication. Given her previous experience, one might make the case that this position is most fit for her. More specifically, she formerly held a PR manager position at a marketing firm, Intermarket.
tZERO’s Action Plan Moving Forward
Navarro supposedly has since been tasked with connecting with firms that are interested in raising capital through token issuance on the tZERO platform. This isn’t the first of the attempts, as the firm has since partnered with Securitize for the aforementioned reasons.
Another endeavor in place is the issuance of tZERO tokens for a movie production, where the latter involves a biopic about the Founder of Atari, Nolan Bushnell. According to the CEO of tZERO, Saum Noursalehi, this movie is considered,
“The perfect project to lead the way of the tokenization of the movie business.”
For the time being, tZERO supports two security tokens, which include its native private equity token, TZEROP, and its parent company’s token, OSTKO and has since launched a crypto-based mobile app for trading purposes.
