Whitelaw to Lead Company Global Growth Through Technology-Driven Innovations and Strategic Acquisitions

NEW YORK, July 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — GoLogiq, Inc. (OTC:GOLQ), a U.S.-based global provider of fintech and consumer data analytics, has appointed company director, Granger Whitelaw , as chief executive officer. He succeeds interim CEO Brent Suen who will remain chairman of the board. Whitelaw will continue to serve as a member of the company’s board of directors as well as chairman of GoLogiq’s Asia Pacific Committee.

As CEO, Whitelaw will oversee GoLogiq’s recently acquired GammaRey subsidiary and help lead the company’s global expansion through further strategic acquisitions and product development. GammaRey brought to GoLogiq a financial assets management business with approximately $800 million under advisement, as well as a pipeline of prospective acquisitions.

Whitelaw brings to GoLogiq over 30 years of executive experience in finance, operations, sales, marketing, M&A, corporate governance and business development. He has successfully built and advised multiple businesses across several industries, including media, aviation, racing, entertainment, software, technology, consumer products and real estate, both in the U.S. and internationally. He has raised over $3.4 billion for business projects, and has helped lead numerous mergers, acquisitions, public offerings and private equity financings.

“Granger is an extraordinary innovator and visionary leader who has guided many companies to their highest potential,” noted Suen. “His skills and experience in capital raising, M&A, and technology-driven innovations align perfectly with GoLogiq’s new growth strategy. We’re excited that Granger has assumed the responsibilities of this important CEO position and look forward to an exciting future under his new leadership.”

GoLogiq’s recently announced a sale of its fintech assets to Group (NASDAQ:RCRT) (NASDAQ:RCRTW), a recruiting solutions provider. Given GoLogiq’s new focus on asset management that was created by the GammaRey acquisition, the board of GoLogiq believes the transaction with will create greater shareholder value versus maintaining the Fintech assets itself. It enables GoLogiq to become a pure play wealth management company with a more clearly definable market valuation, and has helped attract key new management to senior executive positions.

“This is no doubt a very exciting time for GoLogiq as it completes these transformative M&A transactions that add tremendous value to shareholders and a renewed focus,” commented Whitelaw. “I believe in the power of technology to transform industries, and this will be the future for GoLogiq as we work to take its strong base of financial services to a whole new level.”
