Digital asset software provider Lukka has appointed Kinga Bosse, former global head of strategic investments and partnerships at State Street, as its chief financial officer.
In her new role as CFO, Bosse will oversee all aspects of Lukka’s financial positions and fundraising. She will also be essential in expanding Lukka’s growth and reach, particularly with regards to traditional financial institutions, the company said.
In her previous role, Bosse built out the minority investments function and made early and growth-stage strategic investments, including State Street’s investment in Lukka’s Series C raise in December. Lukka has since closed a Series D funding round backed by billionaire investor George Soros’ fund.
“I see incredible demand emerging globally for the institutional grade solutions that Lukka builds,” said Bosse. “Our products and services are expanding rapidly and the international markets are fixed in our sight.
The news comes amid a flurry of new hires as Lukka seeks to tap into the traditional financial market. Financial Industry Regulatory Authority chairperson Eileen Murray was named as a strategic advisor in February. Stephanie Miller, former CEO of Intertrust and J.P. Morgan global head, was recently named as COO.
“Lukka has attracted seasoned leaders from the largest and most successful financial institutions,” said Robert Materazzi, Lukka co-CEO. “Their decisions are largely cultural and are compounded by the enormous opportunity in the crypto industry and at Lukka.”
Lukka currently serves more than 210 active crypto funds. In May, Lukka partnered with S&P Dow Jones Indices to launch three new S&P-branded indices to track cryptocurrencies.
“Expect to see many exciting updates from Lukka as we capitalize on the work that has already been done and as we take all of our products to the next level,” Bosse said.
