Linqto, the world’s first financial technology investment platform democratizing access to private markets for accredited investors, announced that Geno Zawrotny has been appointed as the company’s Chief Revenue Officer.
Zawrotny brings more than two decades of experience to Linqto with expertise across industry sectors, including public equities, alternative investments, cryptocurrency, and special situation investments. He has also worked with portfolio and company management, data analysis, and deal sourcing. Zawrotny previously served as Principal, Institutional Private Markets, at Forge Global, where he played a crucial role in the growth of the company from an early startup to its IPO. Over the course of his 11 years at the company, Zawrotny helped grow the company from 10 to 350 employees and increased its valuation to $2 billion.
“Linqto is positioned in a truly exciting spot right now, with the private market seeing significant activity,” said Zawrotny. “I’m thrilled to be joining a team that I’ve long admired and to contribute to democratizing access for investors. In addition, the chance to both develop new avenues to drive users to the platform, and to identify areas of need for the company, are both key topics for me that I can’t wait to get started on.”
Zawrotny and Linqto have been working together for several years to help onboard secondary shares of companies to the platform. He has been instrumental in this by bringing 40 companies to the platform, including successful exits from Robinhood and NerdWallet in addition to current popular investments like Ripple and Zipline.
“Geno will be a game-changing addition to our team,” said Joe Endoso, President, Linqto. “He brings industry-leading experience, and we look forward to having him support us in finding new efficiencies across the company, and to spur growth, expansion, and much more in the future.”
