Haydn Jones, Founder and Managing Director

Meet Haydn Jones, the Founder and Managing Director of Blockchain Hub. Haydn has over 20 years’ commercial, operational and transformation experience working for retail and investment banks (UBS/Deutsche Bank), a central bank (the Bank of England), a regulator, (the Financial Services Authority), a global management consultancy firm (A. T. Kearney) and a Japanese technology company (Fujitsu). He brings depth in terms of operational knowledge, and breadth in terms of sector knowledge. As to roles, Haydn has held senior operations and technology strategy roles. He has run cash management and funding units, as well as FX and equity settlement teams, alongside leading projects to re-engineer the underlying platforms.

He has worked in architecturally complex, data rich environments, grappling with the challenge of reconciling legacy and leading edge technologies and transforming operating models. Operationally, he has run large, client sensitive platforms demanding high levels of availability. He has facilitated numerous technology and operational workshops, and presents regularly on Fintech, digital, blockchain and digital currencies, most recently presentations in Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Nigeria and Chinese financial institutions. This breadth of experience has given him invaluable expertise in financial services, large corporates, the challenges therein… and how blockchain could transform it for the better.

Haydn trained as an engineer at Manchester University (First Class), and was called to the English Bar by the Inner Temple. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Engineering and Technology, and Liveryman within the Worshipful Company of Information Technologists.
