On September 26, Talos, a digital currencies trading firm, announced the addition of three strategic positions to its staff.
As it grows internationally, Talos will hire Matt Houston as director of client success, Hillary Conley as director of business development, and Frank Van Zegveld as head of sales for Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
Zegveld will be located in Amsterdam and has previously held top positions at Lucera Financial Infrastructures and Solid Trading. In October, he will join Talos.
The Talos hires come after the completion of a $105 million Series B investment round last May, valuing the firm at approximately $1.25 billion.
The investment round was led by General Atlantic and also includes investment from Citigroup, SCB 10x, DRW, Citigroup, Wells Fargo Strategic Capital, Stripes, BNY Mellon, and Voyager and among others.
Talos founder and CEO Anton Katz said, “We’re excited to welcome these three talented people to the Talos crew as we extend our sales and business development presence worldwide.”
Anton Katz further added, “their extensive leadership and industry experience will allow us to develop lasting relationships as we continue to build our global presence in EMEA and beyond.”
