Hilbert Group AB, the Nasdaq First North listed investment firm, focuses on digital assets and blockchain technology, has appointed Gijs Burgers to join the executive team as COO. Gijs Burgers will begin as COO on January 3rd, 2022.

Gijs Burgers has a long history as a board-room consultant and entrepreneur in the FinTech and blockchain spaces, most recently as a Director at AFI and corporate strategist for several prominent companies like the Dutch pension investment company APG Group.

Niclas Sandström, the CEO, said: “We believe Gijs brings a lot of management power, experience and knowledge on a variety of subjects that are important to Hilbert Group. Gijs has been at the forefront of blockchain and cryptocurrencies since 2013. He has taken part in building several successful ventures from the ground up and brings a wide experience of the financial and fintech world he has operated in during the past decade. That expertise will contribute to accelerating Hilbert Group’s ability to raise capital for our fund products and strengthen the development of the other verticals. Securing a capable COO is crucial to achieving our goal to become one of the world’s leading investment firms in the digital assets space.”

“I believe Hilbert Group is one of the few companies paving the way for the next version of global financial infrastructure and investments,” says Gijs Burgers, and continues: “the untapped potential for digital assets, cryptocurrencies, and blockchain remains huge. Hilbert Group’s data-driven approaches to tap that potential and its drive to provide services to forward-thinking parties speak to me.”
