Digital asset software provider AlphaPoint announced this Tuesday that it has appointed Scott Grayson as its Head of Enterprise Sales. Grayson joins the software company from another major blockchain company, the bank-led consortium R3, where he was Chief Sales Officer.
“I am excited to join a company bringing the experience of seasoned professionals to the revolutionary blockchain technology sector,” said Grayson. “The enterprise-grade technology AlphaPoint provides is unparalleled. Asset digitization will continue to drive financial technology innovation, and I could not be more thrilled to contribute my experience and relationships to AlphaPoint’s efforts in ushering in technology that will drive the next era of the digital economy.”
AlphaPoint’s newest employee joins a host of other experienced executives at the software company. The firm now has former Barclays, New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq executives working in a variety of roles. Prior to Grayson, the firm brought in Kapil Rathi, who was previously Head of Equity Options at CBOE Global Markets, to work as Global Head of Trading Markets.

From Bank of America to AlphaPoint
Grayson has a host of experience himself. As noted, he was previously Chief Sales Officer at R3 but, before joining the blockchain company, he worked for over fifteen years at a number of different financial technology companies, including Charles River Development and Progress Apama, in senior sales positions.
The new AlphaPoint executive also has some in-industry experience. According to a statement issued by his new company, Grayson spent over a decade working for Bankers Trust Company, now Deutsche Bank, and Bank of America. During his time at the two firms, he worked on the sale and marketing of cash management and risk management products and services.
“Scott brings with him vast experience in FinTech and a deep understanding of the needs of institutional capital markets constituents,” said AlphaPoint CEO Salil Donde. “Scott’s relationships with key industry stakeholders will be a significant value-add to the AlphaPoint team, and we are happy to have him on board.”
