Digital Asset Names Co-founder Yuval Rooz New CEO

Enterprise blockchain startup Digital Asset’s (DA) co-founder Yuval Rooz has been named as the company’s new chief executive officer.

He replaces AG Gangadhar, who has been acting as CEO since the firm’s iconic leader Blythe Masters quit in December.

Digital Asset’s board of directors unanimously decided to name Rooz to the top executive post.

Digital Asset announced in a statement that Gangadhar will continue to advise the company’s leadership team as executive chairman.

Rooz had co-founded Digital Asset with Shaul Kfir and Eric Saraniecki in 2014.

Since then, he has been serving as the Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer of the company.

As COO, Rooz hired the majority of the company’s executive leadership, established its global presence and oversaw its acquisition of four technology startups. Rooz also helped build strategic relationships with Digital Asset’s clients and partners, such as the Australian Securities
Exchange (ASX).
