Libra Networks has continued its wave of new hires, bringing on another HSBC alum as its chief financial officer and chief risk officer according to a new announcement.
Ian Jenkins was previously HSBC's Head of Business Finance and Group General Manager. He also did stints at Credit Suisse and Santander. Now, he's joining Libra during a "more operational phase of the project," according to a statement from Libra Networks Managing Director James Emmett. Emmett is also a former HSBC employee, and took the role at Libra just last month.
Libra Networks, a subsidiary of the Libra Association, is aimed at managing the operations of the forthcoming blockchain-based payment system. The project has faced scrutiny since its announcement last year, including a number of Congressional hearings.
