Blockchain startup Luxcore ropes in John McAfee as the new CEO

Wed, 15 Aug 2018, 09:08 am UTC

Cybersecurity expert and prominent crypto supporter John McAfee has taken over the helm of a new startup Luxcore.

Luxcore is a “blockchain solutions and services ecosystem that focuses on designing and building enterprise-ready security and privacy products.” McAfee joined the company as a senior advisor in April.

In its latest announcement, the company said that Luxcore co-founder and CEO Brian Oliver “has agreed to step down… to make way for incoming CEO, John McAfee.” In his new role, McAfee will leverage his extensive business acumen and social profile to drive real and sustainable growth in the Luxcore project.


“Luxcore’s rapid development of game-changing technology requires a rapid escalation of business growth,” said McAfee. “In order to achieve the company’s growth targets, there will be a heightened emphasis on strategic marketing of products such as the PoS web wallet and the yet-to-be released LuxGate cross-platform exchange. I am excited about our aggressive growth strategy and the many innovations yet to come.”


In addition, Luxcore announced a number of new appointments – Frederick Angers as CFO; FragileMk to manage Communications and Social Strategy; Luiz Augusto Sará as Designer; Guillaume Huot, formerly Front-End Developer, now COO; John Kim, formerly Director of Client Operations, now Chief of Strategy; Danny Kuester, formerly Community Moderator, now Director of Business Development.

“The new talent coming into Luxcore is uniquely well-suited to drive long-term sustainable growth throughout the remainder of 2018 and into 2019 as Luxcore seeks to achieve its many lofty goals on both the technology and corporate sides of the business,” the company said.
