Digital Asset Names Former Thomson Reuters Exec James Powell to CTO

Digital Asset, a New York-based distributed ledger technology solutions provider, has appointed former Thomson Reuters executive James Powell as its new CIO and CTO of engineering.

Powell is charged with guiding development of the company’s distributed ledger platform and smart contract modelling language, DAML. He joins the firm after a stint at Warburg Pincus as technology officer for the Americas, before which he was CTO of Nielsen, where he built a cloud-based data science platform.

Blythe Masters, CEO of Digital Asset, says “We are delighted that James Powell has joined us at a pivotal time in our company’s journey as we deploy enterprise distributed ledger technology to some of the most challenging requirements in the world.” The firm has clients in New York, London, Zurich, Budapest, Sydney and Hong Kong. In 2017, the Australian Securities Exchange, ASX, announced plans to replace its post-trade infrastructure for cash equities with Digital Asset technology.
