Prior to Goldman Sachs, Mr. Christensen also worked at Deutsche Bank as its Global Head of Strategic Investments, along with additional stops at Volbroker, among others, according to information made public on his Linkedin profile.
According to Mr. Christensen in a recent statement on the appointment: “Green Key will transform the way people communicate. Every phone in the financial markets (and frankly beyond) should instead be a Green Key app; I believe it’s that powerful. The terrific functionality that we all take for granted on our smartphones has just not been available in the corporate setting until now.”
“Paul is a leading market structure practitioner, and we’re thrilled to have him lead the Green Key team. I’ve known him for over a decade and have been continually impressed. He has spent his career building solutions for the markets – since he started at Volbroker. He and Anthony have complementary skills, and they’ll make a great team for a great company,” noted David Rutter, Green Key Advisory Board member and CEO of financial technology innovation firm R3 CEV in an accompanying statement.
