Cryptocurrency exchange Luno recently saw a significant change in leadership in December when Timothy Stranex, the company’s co-founder and chief technology officer (CTO), departed to pursue personal projects. Stranex had been with the company for nearly 10 years, having founded it with Carel van Wyk, Pieter Heyns, and the current CEO, Marcus Swanepoel.

Simon Ince has been appointed as the new CTO of Luno, joining the company two years ago as its vice president of engineering. Ince brings with him a wealth of experience and expertise in software engineering, and is already well versed in Luno’s operations. In addition to Ince’s appointment, Luno has also appointed a number of other executives to its leadership team in recent months.

Luno, which is owned by Digital Currency Group (DCG), has over 10 million customers worldwide and offices in London, Singapore, Cape Town, Johannesburg, Lagos and Sydney. Luno is dedicated to providing secure and efficient cryptocurrency trading, allowing users to buy and sell digital assets. The company provides a range of services, including a wallet, a crypto-fiat trading platform, and educational resources.

Luno’s mission is to make digital currency accessible to everyone. The company is committed to providing a secure, compliant and customer-focused product and service offering. With a global team of over 200 employees, Luno is well-positioned to continue to be a leader in the digital asset space.

The departure of Stranex and the appointment of Ince is an important step in the evolution of the company. Ince has already made great strides in his new role, and his appointment is likely to further strengthen Luno’s position in the market. With the addition of Ince and other new executives, Luno is well-positioned to continue to provide customers with a safe and secure platform for trading digital assets.
