Membrane Labs is thrilled to announce the appointment of Carlos Hawker as our new head of business development and growth.

Carlos joins the team to drive Membrane’s strategic growth, business expansion, and client acquisition while shaping top-notch infrastructure and supporting capital-raising efforts.

Before joining Membrane, Carlos held senior executive roles at XBTO, HSBC, and BlackRock, as well as alternative investment managers and trading venues, leading global business development, distribution, capital raising, and corporate operations.

Carlos holds Master’s degrees in Banking, Finance, and Corporate Law and a Certificate in Negotiation and Leadership.

“This is a very exciting time to join Membrane,” said Carlos, “as the market shifts towards increased transaction volumes and the recovery of the lending market, the technology Membrane has built over the past four years has the potential to transform the way institutions interact with digital assets, from trading right to the management of real-world assets.”

“We’ve built a very strong team here at Membrane,” said CEO Carson Cook. “Following recent sales hires in Singapore and the UK, attracting Carlos to lead business development and growth brings deep experience from both TradFi and the digital asset markets to our team. We’re confident that Membrane has built critical tools for crypto settlement and life cycle management for spot, lending and derivatives, and that we will enjoy further growth as Carlos strategically identifies new clients and opportunities, as well integrations for our suite of products.” 

“Membrane is definitely on to something significant,” stated Michael Ashby, advisor for Membrane and newly appointed CEO of Algoquant, formerly Head of Digital Assets at P72. “Carlos’s growth vision is unique and prioritizes the needs of every client, reinforcing Membrane’s goal to continue growing and establish leadership in the industry.”
