Securrency, the U.S.-based developer of institutional-grade, blockchain-based financial and regulatory technology, has appointed Nadine Chakar as CEO. Her appointment will allow Dan Doney, Securrency’s founder, who has served as the company’s CEO and lead architect since its inception, to focus on innovation, technology delivery, and commercialisation by continuing to serve as chief technology officer.
Most recently, Chakar was head of State Street Digital. She previously led State Street Global Markets, where she oversaw its trading, product, and operations platform. Prior to State Street, she served as global head of operations for Manulife‘s global wealth and asset management division and led the global asset servicing teams for BNY Mellon. Chakar has been a member of the board of directors of Securrency since 2021, when both State Street and U.S. Bank participated in a USD30m Series B funding round.
