New Asset eXchange (NAX), a company that creates new markets and ecosystems around corporate assets, has today announced the appointment of Patrick Nicolet as Chair of its technology platform, Bridge.
Patrick Nicolet – formerly Group CTO and Executive Board Member at Capgemini – will lead NAX’s technology platform as it works on the development and deployment of enterprise-grade solutions to power digital asset economies. The platform’s current focus areas include coin & tokenization solutions, payment & disbursement processing, aggregated blockchain solutions and deployment services.
The arrival of Patrick Nicolet coincides with the appointment of Dr. Heiner Leisten as Chair of the Genesis Project, NAX’s development platform, and Joe Euteneuer as Chair of LiQid, NAX’s securitization platform. Both already sit on the NAX Board alongside high-profile business figures such as Frank Strauß, former Global CEO of Private and Commercial Banking at Deutsche Bank.
Jeff Schumacher, CEO and Founder, NAX said: “Patrick is a world-class technologist and business leader and brings vast experience to the team. His arrival further strengthens the NAX ecosystem; a development platform that mines corporate assets to create asset-backed ventures and markets, a technology platform that provides technology tools and solutions to power digital assets, and a securitization platform to make corporate assets tradeable. With Heiner, Patrick, and Joe at the helm of each, alongside our broader leadership team, we’re building an infrastructure that can fully realize the trillions of dollars of dormant value residing in corporate assets.”
NAX formally launched in January 2021 after two and a half years in stealth development. It focuses on building new markets and ecosystems around corporate assets. Led by serial entrepreneur Jeff Schumacher, NAX comprises three distinct but complementary platforms that provide a new lifecycle to repurpose corporate assets:
Creating asset backed ventures and markets
NAX’s development platform Genesis Project mines dormant corporate assets to create asset-backed ventures and markets.
-Leveraging assets for DeFi
NAX’s technology platform Bridge deploys enterprise-grade technology solutions to power digital asset economies.
-Making alternative assets tradeable
NAX’s trading platform LiQid securitizes corporate assets to make them tradeable.
Schumacher added: “The vast majority of assets globally are not listed. At NAX, we’re building an infrastructure to change that. From seed to securitization, we unlock value from underutilized corporate assets and, in doing so, are building next generation markets.”
