Terraform Labs Appoints Former COO Chris Amani as Interim CEO
SINGAPORE, July 19, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Terraform Labs PTE Ltd. ("TFL") is pleased to announce the appointment of Chris Amani – former Chief Operating Officer (COO) of TFL – as Director and interim Chief Executive Officer (CEO). This appointment follows TFL founder Do Kwon's decision to step down as CEO on 31 March 2023 and as Director on 27 May 2023 while he focuses on personal legal affairs.
Leveraging more than 20 years of leadership experience at global technology companies such as Humanity, where he served as CEO, as well as MongoDB, Electronic Arts, and Zynga, and having played an integral role in TFL's strategy and operations, Mr. Amani is poised to accelerate TFL's mission during a pivotal point in the company's history.
"It's been a challenging year for Terra following UST's depeg, but the Terra community and TFL team have shown incredible resilience," said Mr. Amani. "After the depeg, the community overwhelmingly voted to rebuild Terra without algorithmic stablecoins. TFL's mission is to execute Terra's rebuild alongside them."
Mr. Amani continued, "The process won't be easy, but we have a clear vision of where Terra fits within the broader Web3 ecosystem and are hyper-focused on executing against that vision. We look forward to sharing more on thissoon."
