Here at OMIX Ventures Pvt Ltd. Project SHIVOM (Token Ticker: OMX), now post-ICO and focused on execution and growth, the leadership team has decided to make some significant management changes to ensure efficient execution and platform roll out.
We’re thrilled to announce that Henry Ines has been named as Chief Executive Officer of the global blockchain-based genomics and precision medicine services company.
Henry has deep experience and knowledge of strategic development, corporate finance, startup scaling and execution based on decades of professional experience to include years as a VC, while working in Silicon Valley and Asia as a partner at Draper Dragon Fund, DFJ Dragon Fund and DragonVenture and focusing on early stage investments in frontier technologies to include FinTech & blockchain, artificial intelligence and VR/AR. Henry continues to serve on the advisory board of multiple Blockchain and Silicon Valley tech startups and serves as a mentor to leading incubators and accelerators. Henry is also a lecturer at the Nanyang Technopreneurship Center (NTC), Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and is a Senior Member of the World Education Blockchain Association (WEBA) in Singapore. He began his career at McNeil Consumer Products Company, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, and as a management consultant to Fortune 100 companies while working at Price Waterhouse LLP. Henry holds a BS in Finance from Pennsylvania State University in University Park, PA and an MBA from Duke University Fuqua School of Business in Durham, NC.
“As we enter the Post-ICO phase, I am thrilled to lead the team at SHIVOM, focusing on tackling the many problems associated with the global healthcare system through genomics. The current healthcare system continues to be inefficient and face considerable challenges. Patients’ data continues to not be secure as is evident with the recent disclosures of data breaches. Additionally, many of the prevailing genetics companies and healthcare intermediaries continue to advance business models and practices that are not necessarily consistent with and in the best interests of donors or patients. We are looking forward to being able to empower individuals by providing significant insights into their genomes and health, tools for better managing and determining who has access to personal healthcare data, and enabling individuals to better manage their health and wellness through SHIVOM’s secure blockchain-based technology platform and healthcare ecosystem.”
Dr. Axel Schumacher, company co-founder who has been CEO up to now will continue as Chief Scientific Officer, leveraging his extensive research background and expertise in genomics and precision medicine. Additionally, Dr. Natalie Pankova moves into the role of Chief Operating Officer, and will lead operations out of our London office, leveraging her background in startup operations, business development and R&D, as well as her deep involvement in the global healthcare blockchain community. We believe these roles reflect the most direct path to success for our company, our supporters, and our vision.
SHIVOM cannot wait to build the world’s largest genomics datahub to help support clinical trials, advance research and development and drug discovery process globally, and ultimately work to democratize genomics for all. It is our mission to not only maintain a secure and safe platform for our users and web-market players, but also address the genomic-based complex and rare diseases such as diabetes utilizing advanced technologies such as blockchain and artificial intelligence.
We have a very special team that is dedicated to SHIVOM’s mission and working hard to execute in accordance with the company’s roadmap and growth strategy. As a startup, we must be nimble, iterate as needed and quickly respond to dynamic and evolving conditions. We are confident about our new changes, and keen to work together in new capacities to more effectively execute on our vision and take the company to new heights.
Thank you for your continued support as we enter this new wave of development, and stay tuned into our media outlets for more exciting news coming soon!
