BitMEX announced today that it has decided to appoint Fernando Luis Vazquez Cao, an industry veteran with nearly two decades of experience in Asia’s financial and technology sector, as a Non-Executive Director with immediate effect.

According to the official announcement, the latest appointment of Fernando is a major step towards BitMEX’s transformation plan. The company is also planning to accelerate its business expansion through the valuable knowledge and experience of the newly appointed Non-Executive Director.

Fernando is currently serving as the Chief Executive Officer of SBI Digital Asset Holdings, one of the largest digital asset firms in Asia. He assumed his current role in July 2020.

“Fernando’s career began in academia with a stint as a researcher at Universidade de Vigo, Spain, his alma mater, where he first got deeply involved with the budding Linux and open-source communities. This led him to the commercial world with a number of roles at the NTT Group, eventually becoming a founding member and technical director of NTT Open-Source Software Center and a fellow at NTT Data Intellilink, where he built a team that made major contributions to open-source projects that underpin modern  Cloud  and internet services,” BitMEX mentioned.

In June 2021, BitMEX announced the appointment of Marc Robinson as its Head of Custody.

Extensive Experience

During the last few years, Fernando has held different roles at SBI including founding member/Director of SBI VC Trade, Chief Technical Director of Japannext, Chief Executive Officer of SBI DigiTrust and Chief Executive Officer of SBI Security Solutions.

“I’m excited to be joining the BitMEX team at a time when it is growing rapidly and there are so many opportunities. My experience in technology and many digital asset areas will provide the team with a sounding board as they accelerate the company’s transformation,” Fernando said.

“SBI Digital Asset Holdings has been created with a mindset to disrupt global markets. That’s exactly the mission we have. Fernando’s experience across a wide range of the areas relevant to our transformation also makes him an ideal Non-Executive Director,” David Wong, Chairman of BitMEX, commented.
