Binance Australia Appoints Former DigitalX EXEC Leigh Travers as New CEO
Binance exchange officially announced Sunday that the company hired former DigitalX CEO and director Leigh Travers as the CEO of Binance Australia.
Binance Australia appreciated that Mr. Travers has deep expertise and background in the blockchain industry. He served on the board of directors of Blockchain Australia, an Australian blockchain industry organisation, before serving as the executive officer of DigitalX Limited. In the past seven years, Travers has also played a key role in building products and developing the blockchain technology company DigitalX Limited network.
DigitalX is an innovative software solutions company focused on digital asset funds management and building blockchain products, which was listed on the Australian Securities Exchange in 2014 through a reverse acquisition of the listed company Macro Energy Ltd.
Travers expressed his belief in the good experience that Binance Australia brought to trading customers and said that he would continue to strengthen the compliance operation of Binance exchange and strengthen the connection and cooperation with regulatory agencies. He said that:
"I've long been an advocate of the benefits that blockchain technology has to offer society, and it's a mission of mine to grow the industry over the coming years. My key interests are shared with Binance Australia in championing the adoption of blockchain and the pathway for blockchain businesses in Australia. The opportunity to work with users nationally is incredibly exciting."
The Chief Operating Officer at Binance Australia, Sam Teoh, welcomed the new personnel appointment and replied that:
“We've observed the work Leigh has done at DigitalX for a while now and we're excited to work with him not just on Binance Australia's continued growth, but widespread adoption of blockchain businesses and cryptocurrency in Australia at large."
As reported by Blockchain.News on August 18, another division of the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange Binance in terms of daily trading volume Binance.US, has appointed Joshua Sroge, the company’s CFO, as the interim CEO.
