The Board is pleased to announce the appointment of experienced finance professional Robin Halliday as group Chief Financial Officer. Robin, who will be based in the UK, adds considerable depth to our senior management team as we prepare for the transition from start-up to operations in the coming months.
Bluechain CEO Mike McAuley commented “Robin’s experience in both the public and private sectors and his first-hand knowledge of IT, telecoms, and financial services industries is a great fit for Bluechain.”
During his 20+ year career, Mr Halliday has held finance leadership roles in both public and private technology-focused businesses, including Accenture, BT Azure, Vibrant Media, Axon and a number of start-up and institutionally backed businesses. Mr Halliday has led two IPOs in London, one on AIM and one a full LSE listing, and has significant M&A and fundraising experience.
Mr McAuley added that “[Mr Halliday’s] experience in managing rapid growth of internationally dispersed businesses and his knowledge of international accounting and reporting standards will stand us in good stead as we approach a number of important company milestones in the second half of 2018 that will see the company move to revenue-earning operations on three continents.”
