Inacta, an IT consulting firm specializing in digitalization and blockchain, is strengthening its corporate governance and broadening the ownership structure. According to a press release, Daniel Sauter, former Chairman of private bank Julius Bär, is the new director of the Board and will support Inacta’s strategic growth. He has also “taken a significant financial interest” in the consulting firm. Daniel Sauter said “I am passionate about innovation, blockchain and digital assets, areas in which I see great potential”. “Inacta is in an excellent position to participate in these growing markets, and I look forward to working with the team to develop the company further.”
Nathan Kaiser has also joined the board of Inacta Ventures. He will also focus on expanding the venture strategy for existing start-ups such as Tokengate, Gentwo Digital and Inapay. Kaiser has returned to Switzerland after more than 20 years in Asia and the USA. Most recently, he was General Counsel at SIX Digital Exchange (SDX) where he was instrumental in obtaining a license from FINMA for the trading of digital assets at the Exchange.
Kathrin Genovese-Delwing joins the board of Inacta platform Tokengate. The former UBS banker is today CEO of a subsidiary of Geneva private bank UBP and was previously CEO of Marc Rich and Co.
In addition to expanding the Swiss home market, Inacta has been advancing its strategic expansion into the Middle East. With Dubai at its center, an ecosystem named Crypto Oasis is being built with different partners. The aim is to replicate the successful Crypto Valley model from Zug and generate additional growth by interconnecting the two markets.
