BKCM Hires Frank Hourigan As COO
Crypto and blockchain investor BKCM today announced the hire of Frank Hourigan as Chief Operating Officer.
In his new role, Hourigan will oversee all aspects of strategic planning and business operations, with a special focus on continuing the rapid growth of the firm's hedge fund business. Hourigan brings extensive expertise in both capital markets and cryptocurrency, having co-founded and served as CEO of Satis Group LLC, a boutique investment bank focused on digital assets. Prior to that he served as Managing Director for ICO Investment Banking at Argon Group. The depth and breadth of Frank's professional relationships and experience will bridge the gap between traditional and crypto investors on an institutional level.
"This business requires a unique skill set. In addition to capital markets expertise, it requires a deep understanding the intricacies of crypto-blockchain technology and the entrepreneurial drive to bring emerging opportunities to clients," said Brian Kelly, CEO of BKCM. "Frank delivers in all three of those areas, especially the fast-changing cryptocurrency space, where he has hands-on experience issuing ICOs—both security and utility tokens, and a proven ability to raise capital for numerous blockchain related investments."
BKCM manages a cryptocurrency hedge fund and the newly launched publicly traded REX BKCM ETF (NYSE: BKC).
