"I approach opportunities like Katipult as an investor first; I have been impressed with Katipult's product and I am intrigued at the potential of the alternative investment market, but ultimately my investment decisions are based on people, and I have enjoyed my interactions with Brock and his management team and I am encouraged that Katipult is supported by a strong and committed Board," said Brian Craig. "I am attracted to investment opportunities that have an above-average growth profile for a sustainable horizon, and I'm confident if we execute at Katipult we can deliver above-average investor returns."
Marcus Shapiro, Chairman and Independent Director of Katipult, said "Over the past few months, it has been my pleasure to have had an extensive dialogue with Brian Craig, along with all my Board colleagues. We are convinced that Brian's extensive professional experience as a senior executive and Director of Solium and his investment experience with other growth companies will bring much value to Katipult. The Independent Directors and Katipult's Management are truly delighted to welcome Brian as a Director and look forward to benefiting from his insight and guidance."
