Komainu recently announced that it has hired Suzanne Hubble as its new Chief Operating Officer & Chief Financial Officer, effective immediately.
Recently announced in an official press release, Suzanne Hubble, an executive veteran with close to two decades of experience in the Finance industry, has been named by Komainu, a regulated digital asset custody services provider, as its new Chief Operating Officer & Chief Financial Officer.
Hubble brings almost two decades of experience in Banking and Finance, with specific knowledge of eCommerce and clearing. Komainu selected her for the role as she is a seasoned business strategist with unique institutional banking experience.
The appointment follows Komainu’s $25M Series A funding round, as the company continues to scale and increase its capabilities in a timely secure and regulatory compliant manner.
