“A hallmark of our Board is that it features leaders experienced in managing complex regulatory and financial environments. Tricia and Scott bring unique expertise that adds a new dimension that will drive significant impact across Paxos as we serve more sophisticated global enterprises,” said Charles Cascarilla, CEO and Co-Founder of Paxos.
As seasoned executives in the financial services industry with significant expertise in investment strategy and portfolio management, Kemp and Malpass will provide unique insight and guidance as Paxos continues to differentiate itself as a trusted operator in blockchain-based financial market infrastructure.

Prior to founding Oak HC/FT, Patricia served as a venture partner at Oak Investment Partners, which she joined in 2002.

“Paxos has built the tokenization platform, custodial services and regulated framework to facilitate the mainstream adoption of digital assets by the world’s largest financial institutions. It is now crucial the public understands the importance of upgrading financial infrastructure and sees the benefits of partnering with a company like Paxos. I’m excited to join the Board and guide the team as it drives critical innovations in financial services,” said Scott Malpass.
