Edwards will be leading the company’s efforts at global expansion. Though one might expect him to be solely concerned with business development, he will also be working on compliance procedures.

“Mitch has extensive experience in both capital markets and building blockchain businesses,” said Brian Collins, Globex CEO. “His experience covers investments in blockchain technologies and exchanges from early stage through project development and operations which will be a hugely important asset to our company as we continue to pursue our strategic priorities.”

Prior to taking up his new role, Edwards held a number of senior roles at blockchain and internet companies.

Globex and the Chia Network

Alongside his current role, he is also Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of Chia Network – a company that is developing a ‘green’ cryptocurrency. He was also CFO of Core Scientific, a company that builds blockchain infrastructure.

More pertinent, at least for Globex’s needs, was his experience with Overstock. Working as CEO for two years, he managed the company’s development of blockchain securities and also helped build tZERO – the company’s digital asset exchange.

Other notable roles that Edwards has held include CFO and General Counsel for headphones maker Skullcandy and file sharing company BitTorrent.
