Maksim Gontar, our Chief Commercial Officer

Maksim is Platio’s Chief Commercial Officer. He has more than a decade’s experience in customer acquisition, business development and marketing. He is responsible for bringing a structured approach and best sales practices to the Platio project.

I travel a lot,” Maxim says, “and almost every day I face the inability to use my assets freely, especially crypto assets.

Platio was just the product he had been waiting for.

There is no solution that can help me to solve this issue today. I really wanted this product to appear, and luckily for me, not only was I able to find it but I was at the roots of its creation!

Maksim has lived and worked in Europe, East Africa and Vietnam, and offers Platio a truly international perspective. He has a Master’s degree in investment and marketing and has successfully launched several startups.

Inspired by Warren Buffett and a lover of European literature, Maksim likes to relax with writers like Bernard Werber, Frédéric Beigbeder and Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.

A former windsurfing champion, Maksim was once one of the best windsurfers in Europe. Though no longer competing in the sport, he is the current chair of the Ukrainian federation for windsurfing, kitesurfing and surfing.

Maksim’s outstanding experience and strategic expertise will help Platio to achieve its goal of meeting the banking needs of the new crypto-fiat economy, increasing confidence in crypto as an asset and driving its global adoption.
