Get to know the newest members of Team Celsius! – Celsius Network
Team Celsius is now bigger and better than ever before!
From market mayhem to life under lockdown, the first year of the new decade is certainly off to an unexpected start. While we’re all focused on staying home and staying healthy, Team Celsius has managed to grow bigger and stronger than ever before! Over the past couple of months, we’ve added some badass bosses to our lineup of talented, innovative, and passionate employees all working to create a future of finance that acts in your best interest. Keep reading to meet some of the latest and greatest additions to the Celsius Network team.
Shiran Kleiderman, Chief Security Officer
Shiran Kleiderman joins the Celsius team with a wealth of knowledge and experience in cybersecurity, cyber intelligence, risk assessment, and cryptography. As our Chief Security Officer, his role is to ensure that your assets are protected by state-of-the-art technology and a highly-trained team of security experts working around the clock to act in your best interest.
Shiran is a native of northern Israel, grew up in Miami, and is currently based out of our office in Tel Aviv. Prior to joining Celsius, Shiran built a successful startup that developed applications for eBay and Amazon to enhance sales and client interactions. He and his friends also recently created an innovative Bitcoin wallet that utilizes cryptographic protocols to secure funds through an external, wearable device.
When he’s not busy building the future of cybersecurity, he enjoys cycling through the landscapes of Israel, debating the finer aspects of game theory, and is currently learning to speak Japanese. We’re thrilled to have Shiran on our team, and he will play an integral role in moving Celsius to the forefront of the blockchain industry.
Harumi Urata-Thompson, Chief Financial Officer
Say hi to Harumi Urata-Thompson, our new Chief Financial Officer! Born and raised in Japan, we’re hoping Harumi can help Shiran with his latest language learning goals 🙂 She is currently based out of the Celsius office in NYC leading our team of experts to build a future of finance that’s powered for the people, by the people.
Harumi launched her career in the tradition sector with positions at Morgan Stanely and Citigroup, worked her way up the ladder to become the Director of Innovation and Digital Strategy at Thompson Reuters, and has since served as a co-founder and advisor to a number of successful tech and finance companies around the world.
While she may be a finance expert by trade, Harumi is a total foodie at heart. Her recent contributions to the Celsius foodie Slack channel have solidified her as a true CFO (Chief Foodie Officer), but her eclectic taste goes far beyond the kitchen table. In her words, “Travel is my DNA, the gym is my religion, food is my sacred item, and performing arts is my blood.” With Harumi on the Celsius team, we’re confident that our hearts, stomachs, and wallets will always be full!
Camilla Churcher, Global Head of Business Development
It’s rare to find someone as poised, professional, and passionate as our new Head of Business Development, Camilla Churcher. If her British accent doesn’t immediately charm you, her ambition certainly will. She’s not only a busy mother of 3 young kids, but she’s also managed to find time to complete the NYC Marathon… eight times! Talk about non-stop 😅🏃♀️
Camilla is currently based out of our office in New York City and joins Celsius Network with over 20 years of experience in the traditional finance world. After serving as an analyst for both Morgan Stanley and Citigroup, Camilla worked her way up to become Bank of America’s Director of Prime Brokerage Sales. She dove head-first into the crypto world serving as the Head of Sales for LGO, and she’s now chosen to unbank herself as a key player for team Celsius.
In her new role, Camilla is taking the lead on securing strategic partnerships to drive revenue and growth for Celsius and help us achieve our mission of putting fair financial services to the hands of millions around the world.
Tom McCarthy, Head of Video
Camilla isn’t the only Brit we’ve added to the team recently. Say hi to Tom McCarthy, our newest addition to the Celsius marketing team! Tom is a true Celsius success story having started out as an avid Celsius user only a couple of years ago, made lots of connections with our team as a Celsius ambassador, and later became a stand-out applicant to lead our video production efforts. Today he manages all of our video content from conception to production to publication. If you follow Celsius on Twitter, you’ve probably seen some of his latest work 😉
Tom is based remotely out of London and put his entrepreneurial dreams on hold to heed the call of the Celsius movement. When he’s not behind the camera or in the editing studio, Tom can typically be found enjoying a pint at the local pub like the true Londoner he is. He’s also an experienced traveler and self-proclaimed anti-bank enthusiast. Through Tom’s storytelling and creative insights, we look forward to sharing the Celsius story in new and engaging ways as we work to bring the next 100 million into the world of crypto!
We’re always looking for talented people to join the growing Celsius team. If you think you have what it takes to change the banking equation and build the future of finance, get in touch with us by emailing email@example.com!
