Digital asset financial services provider Huobi Group has appointed Livio Weng CEO of its flagship cryptocurrency exchange business, Huobi Global.
Weng started at Huobi Group in August 2018 and previously held a senior management role with Jiedaibao, a Chinese peer-to-peer financial lending platform, and was a product director at Sohu Inc, a Chinese internet company.
“Livio’s background and leadership abilities made him a natural fit for this role and we are confident that he will be instrumental in taking Huobi to the next level as we continue to expand into the global marketplace,” said Huobi Group founder and CEO Leon Li.
Weng will manage Huobi Global’s exchange business as well as oversee marketing, public relations and business development for Huobi Global’s parent company.
“I think that blockchain and crypto are among the most important and world changing technologies of the 21st century and I’m excited to be on the cutting edge of this change with a pioneering company like Huobi,” said Weng.
“Over 2019 and beyond, people should expect to see a number of great new products and services as well as some big changes to Huobi Global.”
