Cryptocurrency exchange IronX has named Dimitris Hatzis CEO effective immediately. The new exchange, a joint venture between the IronFX Group and EmurgoHK, allows private and institutional investors to exchange cryptocurrencies, and trade forex, commodities, equities, and other tradable assets.

IronX is a fully regulated cryptocurrency trading exchange after being approved by the Estonian Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) in September. Previously, IronX sold 67.6 million tokens worth a market value of $22.3 million in an invitation only private sale. Their public token sale began last week.

“By appointing Mr Hatzis as our new CEO, we have selected a highly experienced and knowledgeable market leader at a time when cryptocurrencies are on the verge of universal adoption” IronX founder and chairman Markos A. Kashiouris said.

“The pace of technological change is both unpredictable as well as exponential,” Mr. Hatzis said. “Cryptocurrencies are impacting on every individual, country, and organization in an unprecedented fashion, so IronX’s global role in trading them under a regulated umbrella has never been more important.”

Mr. Hatzis started his career in 1994 at Schroders in London before moving to Salomon Smith Barney and then Citigroup in New York where he oversaw international equity capital markets for Asian and European issuers. Over the following 10 years, he became the head of regional banking at Eurobank before transitioning to head of Leveraged Finance & Complex Restructuring Group, where he managed Eurobank’s leveraged debt portfolio.
