Chief Financial Officer of Commonwealth Bank, Rob Jesudason, left his position in the Bank and took over as chief operating officer and president of Block.one company.
Jesudason will be a member of Block.one’s Board of Directors and be responsible for scaling the group’s global operations. He resigned from Commonwealth Bank of Australia (ASX: CBA), a global top-12 bank by market capitalization at AUD $125 billion, yesterday and will join Block.one later this year following his notice period.
“Rob has a proven track record of success in global financial services, where he has been involved in industry innovation and facilitated regulatory advancement enabling the adoption of new technologies.”
“His alignment with our organizational priorities of creating compliant, high performance blockchain solutions, is an ideal fit for Block.one, and is an exciting conclusion to our thorough search for the right individual.” Brendan Bloomer, CEO of Block.one, said.
Rob Jesudason responded: “The market’s strong response to Block.one’s approach has resulted in it being one of the fastest growing organizations in the world, and this will inform our operational growth strategies going forward. I am delighted to be joining Brendan and the team.”
