Kssis resigned from 21Shares in September 2021, having worked there for two years.
Laurent Kssis, a former director of crypto goods supplier 21Shares, has been appointed managing director and head of Europe at Hashdex, a Brazilian cryptocurrency asset management.
Kssis will be in charge of Hashdex’s European expansion, the company announced Tuesday.
“His experience with crypto exchange-traded products [ETPs], particularly in Switzerland – which has emerged as the leading venue for listing crypto ETPs – will be critical in assisting Hashdex as we accelerate our international expansion, expand our global footprint with innovative institutional-grade products and services, and create pathways for Swiss and European investors to access the crypto economy,” said Marcelo Sampaio, co-founder and CEO of Hashdex.
Kssis stepped down as managing director of Switzerland-based 21Shares in September after two years. While at 21Shares, he assisted in the introduction of various crypto ETPs across European stock exchanges.
Prior to joining 21Shares, Kssis worked for a number of well-known organisations, including Standard & Poor’s, State Street, and XBT Provider, a CoinShares subsidiary. Kssis began his new employment in January, according to his LinkedIn profile.
Additionally, Hashdex plans to hire new members in London, Zurich, Paris, and Lisbon.
