“I am excited about GoLogiq’s mission and tremendous opportunities in the high-growth Fintech sector,” stated Beaumont. “I’m looking forward to contributing my experience and relationships in the technology and finance communities, and helping GoLogiq grow organically as well as through potential M&As and strategic partnerships. The acquisition of GammaRey is especially exciting and inspired me to join the team.”
