Important Announcement: InfoCorp Foundation Appoints Roy Lai as New Chairman
Dear Sentinel Chain Community,
We would like to announce the appointment of Roy Lai as new chairman of InfoCorp Foundation effective 15 August 2018. The boards of Infocorp Foundation and Infocorp Agtech will relinquish their current roles to focus on further development of the blockchain ecosystem.
Roy remains CEO of InfoCorp Technologies as he concurrently serves as chairman of InfoCorp Foundation.
InfoCorp Foundation board has been led by esteemed veteran industry leaders comprising of Mr Chia Hock Lai (President of Singapore Fintech Association), Mr Anson Zeall (Chairman of ACCESS) and Ms Zann Kwan (Board member of ACCESS).
In brief, InfoCorp Foundation was established to govern and supervise the issuance of the Sentinel Tokens and to promote the growth, safety and harmony of its ecosystem. InfoCorp AgTech is responsible for the successful development and operation of the Sentinel Chain and a wholly owned subsidiary of InfoCorp Foundation. InfoCorp Technologies is the technology company engaged to implement Sentinel Chain. Full details of these entities and responsibilities are in the Sentinel Chain Whitepaper.
In order to meet up to the challenges of our post-ICO phase, the existing board of the foundation and InfoCorp Agtech board has decided to appoint the current CEO of InfoCorp Technologies, Roy Lai, to be chairman of the Foundation.
The Sentinel Chain team would like to thank the exiting board for their valuable insights and leadership. The exiting board would also like to thank Roy Lai, the CEO of InfoCorp Technologies, for his groundbreaking vision and wonderful time working together on the development of the Sentinel Chain.
“I will endeavour to share a credible plan with our community to explain our next steps in a week or so, and on how we will regain the confidence of our community.
Sentinel Chain is a project designed to bring hope to the underserved and we have never once lost sight of this objective. However, Sentinel Chain is a marathon and not a sprint. I urge our community to remember the journey we have embarked together since May last year. We have seen our fair share of ups and downs — from our KYC incident, to the pledge demonstrated by our community in our Proof-of-Support campaign and finally to the successful completion of our public sale and the listing of SENC on gate.io within the first month after our ICO.
At every step, we have surmounted hurdles along the way and I thank our community for not once giving up on us. Now, I ask for our community to give us the courage and support to continue with our journey ahead”.
Roy Lai, Chairman of InfoCorp Foundation and CEO of InfoCorp Technologies.
Please join us to welcome Roy Lai on board and wish him success.
