Enterprise unit expands into Zurich, Geneva, and London as it aims to expand services and double talent

(Ledger Enterprise Solutions, Global) October 28, 2021 -- Ledger Enterprise Solutions, the leading digital asset security technology provider for custodians, exchanges, fintech, and traditional financial institutions today announced its expansion in the Zurich, Geneva, and London markets with an increased financial commitment to the Europe, Middle East, Africa (“EMEA”) business, dedication to acquiring top talent in the region and continued development of its best-of-breed security infrastructure for enterprises.

Ledger Enterprise Solutions has opened offices in Zurich, Geneva and London and announced Frank Harzheim as Head of Sales EMEA, being responsible for overseeing clients’ strategic growth in the EMEA region and leading new business efforts in Switzerland, as part of the global sales organization, led by Alexandre Lemarchand, Vice President of Global Sales and Partnerships at Ledger Enterprise Solutions.

Frank previously served as Founder of ASSIGNO, a technology solutions consultancy based in Zurich, where he focused on infrastructure and data security deployment for global corporations. He has over 20 years of experience in the emerging technology industry with a special focus on the EMEA region. He served as CEO of Deltalis, a Swiss hyper-secure datacenter, through its acquisition by Blockchains, Inc. in 2018.

Ledger Enterprise Solutions’ Vice President of Global Sales and Partnerships, Alexandre Lemarchand, commented, “With Frank joining the team, his experience and depth of knowledge of the EMEA region and the Swiss market will allow Ledger to expand our partner ecosystem in key markets as more companies adopt digital assets and prioritize security. He will play a crucial role as Ledger Enterprise Solutions builds teams across the globe.”

Ledger Enterprise Solutions is building momentum globally. With a 60% increase in enterprise client count since early 2021, the Enterprise unit has a keen focus on the EMEA, North America, and APAC markets as more companies prioritize digital asset custody and security. Ledger Enterprise Solutions is dedicated to unlocking the power of the digital asset ecosystem by building more DeFi, staking, and NFT capabilities.

Ledger’s CEO, Pascal Gauthier, commented, “We see the adoption of digital assets as the fastest-growing segment of financial services but it’s also the most complex on the security front. Every day we talk to companies that want DeFi and NFTs capabilities but they can’t sacrifice their clients’ security. The dedication to expanding in key markets allows us to bring on deep talent and partner with companies to develop popular, yield-generating solutions while remaining focused on security deployment. We are driven to be the leader in every region we operate in and look forward to adding new capabilities to our enterprise solution by the end of the year.”

The Ledger Enterprise Solutions suite of services centers around enterprise adoption of the core custody technology platform, Ledger Vault. Through consulting, advisory services, and partnerships, Ledger Enterprise Solutions aims to help enterprises address technology implementation, security, and governance in their digital asset portfolios.

As a business entity, Ledger Enterprise Solutions draws on the expertise of over 90 professionals with deep technical knowledge and international backgrounds in security, infrastructure, blockchains, and strategy at leading technology and finance companies including Microsoft, Nasdaq, The New York Stock Exchange, S&P, and Visa. Ledger Enterprise Solutions is committed to doubling its headcount by 2022 as it aims to hire engineering, sales, and customer support talent.
