Blockchain technology provider Finboot announces the promotion of Alvaro Llobet to General Manager, based in the company’s office in Barcelona.
Llobet assumes the role from his previous position as Business and Commercial Strategy Manager, a role he has held since joining Finboot in 2018.
Finboot’s hero product, MARCO, acts as an ecosystem bringing together blockchain technology for companies to incorporate within their value and supply chains - helping them meet sustainability and ESG requirements while increasing operational efficiency.
Under the new role, Llobet will take responsibility for shaping the company’s business and financial strategy - as well as product design and integration and sales and marketing - as the company advances its international growth plans.
Llobet began his career in consultancy services where he gained experience developing and implementing bespoke software solutions for large organisations and startups before turning his focus to blockchain technologies in 2016.
Commenting on his promotion, Llobet said: “Becoming Finboot’s general manager marks a significant point in my professional development. I joined the company with the clear goals of building digital technologies powered by blockchain for big corporations, and to share trustworthy and validated data. The new role will enable me to do this on an international scale - bringing the benefits of blockchain to more enterprises while furthering the global transition to a low carbon economy.”
Juan Miguel Pérez Rosas, CEO of Finboot, said: “We are delighted to appoint Alvaro as general manager. He has been instrumental in Finboot’s success to date and we look forward to his contributions in shaping the future and direction of the company as we grow our mission to make blockchain technology accessible to enterprises across the world.”
Llobet’s promotion follows the opening of Finboot’s new UK headquarters in Cardiff. The Enterprise Software as a Service (SaaS) company recently secured a £2.4 million equity investment from investors including the Development Bank of Wales and energy company Repsol.
Finboot’s world-class blockchain powered technology can be applied to multiple business sectors, enabling companies to simplify and speed up interactions within their supply chains - saving them time and money. The technology securely stores information - ensuring tamperproof traceability of products and the verification of sustainability credentials.
