Institutional crypto platform company Talos has announced the appointment of Silvia Wong as Sales Director of APAC. Silvia, based in Singapore, will be working alongside Head of APAC Samar Sen and Head of APAC Sales Pamela Lee as Talos continues to expand into the region.
Silvia Wong will be primarily responsible for driving, managing, and executing Talos’ revenue generation strategies across the region. Silvia’s hiring comes at a time of tremendous growth for the company following Talos’ $105 million Series B funding round in May led by General Atlantic, valuing the company at $1.25 billion.
Prior to Talos, Silvia served as Head of Singapore for Integral Development Corp where she was responsible for driving new business and managing strategic relationships with the group’s institutional client base in the region. Prior to her position at Integral, she worked for 360 Trading Networks as a South East Asia Account Sales Director. Silvia also held a field sales management position at Standard Chartered Bank and holds an MBA in Finance from The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology as well as a Bachelor of Computer Engineering degree from the National University of Singapore.
“Joining Talos enables me to bring best practices from the TradFi world into the fast-emerging world of digital assets,” said Wong. “I am eager to start this new adventure with Talos and am looking forward to working with the team as we continue to pioneer the institutional crypto space.”
“I am thrilled to welcome another member to our APAC Team, and I could not be happier to work alongside a veteran financial markets sales professional such as Silvia,” said Head of APAC at Talos Samar Sen. “With Silvia’s comprehensive sales leadership experience and genuine knowledge of the institutional crypto space, I am confident that our team can drive sales in the APAC region to entirely new heights.”
