StrikeX, the London-based blockchain technology company, has hired Rob Clark as Interim Chief Technology Officer. Rob will work on the entire range of StrikeX products, including delivery of its flagship product, TradeStrike, scheduled for 2022.
Rob brings 25 years of experience in the global IT market to the StrikeX team. He began his career as an engineer at ServiceTec, helping to support and deploy mission critical mainframe, Unix and Wintel platforms for various enterprise, defence, and public sector organisations.
In 2003 Rob moved to BT as a technical consultant, working in a variety of roles and industries, including within transition and crisis management teams, as well as technical solution design and deployment for a number of financial institutions in the City of London.
In 2008, Rob joined specialist network distributor Zycko as Technical Director, helping the business to achieve significant growth, which resulted in a takeover by Nuvias group. At Nuvias, Rob was instrumental in enabling the group’s expansion by running its technology and solutions portfolio, as well as its strategic and alliance business. As Director of Technologies & Solutions Development, Rob led the group’s networks, infrastructure and cyber security capabilities, as well as owning the DevOps practice. He was responsible for designing and delivering solutions to SP, SI and enterprise partners, including several mission critical infrastructure and software deployments into the financial and trading sectors. Departing Nuvius in 2021, Rob left the group in a significantly improved financial and operational position.
Rob’s focus at StrikeX is the delivery of its products, including the decentralised exchange TradeStrike Lite, as well as the StrikeX Wallet, and the TradeStrike exchange. With Rob’s extensive experience of delivering robust and innovative infrastructure and security platforms, he is responsible for security and compliance throughout StrikeX’s infrastructure, and delivering the launch of TradeStrike in late 2022.
Rob Clark, Chief Technological Officer, StrikeX said: “Innovation in blockchain technology is revolutionising trading as we know it. This development is immensely exciting, and I am delighted to be able to play a part by working on the next generation of financial infrastructure. StrikeX have some fantastic products and an ambitious plan to deliver a new way of tokenised asset trading which is accessible for everyone. Having worked for a number of trading organisations, I am excited to work at the cutting edge of technology and contributing my experience to the construction and delivery of a whole new platform which has the potential to completely transform the market.”
Joe Jowett, CEO and co-founder of StrikeX said: “We are delighted to have someone with Rob’s experience join the team while we tackle the practical delivery of our roadmap. His hands-on support on the launch of our StrikeX Wallet and the TradeStrike platform, as well as implementing important updates to our decentralised exchange TradeStrike Lite will be invaluable for the stability and efficiency of our products. Furthermore, Rob’s experience in working for a number of financial organisations and implementing functional business strategies will bring a valuable perspective on how StrikeX can develop as a business in the long term. With Rob’s support and know-how, we are well-placed to successfully reinvigorate the trading market.”
