Blockchain consulting firm Talos Enterprise Blockchain (TEB) has picked up a veteran in business, who will lead its team across North America and internationally, the firm announced on 31 October.
According to TEB’s press release, Minaz Sarangi has joined the company as President, bringing to the table more than 30 years of experience in driving digital transformation in the financial industry.
Mr. Sarangi has not only been a strategic advisor to several world class organizations, but has also held executive roles such as Chief Architect & CIO, Shared Services at TD Bank Financial Group, and Chief Architect at ING Group.
He said in a statement:
“I’ve been impressed with Talos Enterprise Blockchain for some time and am excited to join at this stage of growth. Its team is truly committed to bringing world-class solutions to drive digital transformation.”
Even though TEB entered the digital transformation market earlier this year, it brought with it a veteran management team with decades of experience in consulting and blockchain.
The company aims to offer solutions at every stage of blockchain development, from strategy consulting to management of large scale permissioned-based blockchain networks.
In order to provide exceptional consulting services and accelerate time to market for their clients, the company has built a global network of partners, including the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance.
A Partner at TEB, Shahid Ahmed, had previously said in a statement:
“At Talos Enterprise Blockchain our focus is on ensuring enterprises reach the right business outcome with blockchain. From the start of engagements we utilize the TEB methodology to determine whether blockchain is the right technology of choice. For this emerging technology, it is as much a business decision as a technical one.”
As the company has put it, its strength lies with its team, which includes members such as Michael Luna, a former CTO at Jawbone who has over 100 issued U.S. patents; Shahid Ahmed, a co-founder of the EQITII Foundation and member of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Technology Advisory Council; Amyn Gillani, CEO of Talos Digital and Mentor at the Founder Institute; Keith Magnum, an advisor at PricewaterhouseCoopers; Camilo Usuga, who earlier co-founded one of Latin America’s first social commerce startups; and Saquib Malik, who is an innovation executive with a track record as a creator, engineer and business leader.
