Chris Tyrer appointed to the Board of Directors at Asset Reality
Asset Reality, the world’s only platform that helps governments and authorities manage criminal, physical and digital assets in one place, has appointed Chris Tyrer to its Board of Directors.
Tyrer brings with him considerable experience from almost two decades holding senior roles at Fidelity Digital Assets and Barclays, adding to Asset Reality’s growing team of industry experts.
During his time at Fidelity, Tyrer served as President of Fidelity’s Digital Asset Management unit, before being asked to lead global efforts for the institutional business. Whilst there, Tyrer played a vital role in rapidly building out Fidelity’s digital assets business.
Prior to joining Fidelity Digital Assets, Tyrer spent over a decade working at Barclays as Global Head of Crude Oil Trading and Head of Commodities Trading, before gaining recognition for his part in leading Barclays’ cryptocurrency efforts in his new role of Head of Digital Assets Projects. With his experience, Chris is strategically positioned to help accelerate Asset Reality’s growth.
With less than 1% of criminals’ assets recovered globally, Asset Reality’s mission is to bridge the gap in global asset forfeiture by providing the world’s first comprehensive and efficient solution for seizing, managing, and liquidating both physical and digital assets.
Chris Tyrer, Non-Executive Director at Asset Reality, said: “As I have gotten to know Aidan and the team at Asset Reality over the last several years, I have been continually impressed with their strategic vision and business execution.
“Asset recovery firms and law enforcement agencies are facing unique challenges posed by the rise of crypto-assets. Asset Reality is building sorely needed tools to enable these organisations to manage these assets in a safe and secure manner.
“I couldn’t be more excited to join Asset Reality as a non-executive director and to help Aidan and the team drive the business towards achieving its very ambitious goals.”
Aidan Larkin, Co-Founder and CEO at Asset Reality, said: “Chris’ experience and expertise working in the digital assets industry makes him an incredibly valuable addition to the Asset Reality team. We’re incredibly excited to work closely with him as we continue our mission to give governments, authorities and private companies the tools they need to effectively manage their seized assets.”
