We want to wish the warmest of welcomes to Bulat Kaliev, the new Chief Operations Officer for TotemFi! We pride ourselves on finding grade A talent and bringing them onboard our project to further our progress and contribute to the innovative tech we’re using to disrupt the prediction market ecosystem. We’ve always believed that hiring the best and brightest is what sets projects up for success more than any other factor.
Bulat very much fits this criteria; he was previously the Head of the Blockchain Lab at multinational consulting, accounting and financial services firm Deloitte. While there, he was directly responsible for overseeing the strategic and operational delivery of the unit. Developed and implemented business strategies, plans and procedures, KPIs, budget and sales and worked with high exposure to leadership.
Originally from Russia, Bulat recently completed an MBA at Warwick Business School in Coventry UK. Prior to heading up the Blockchain lab at Deloitte, Bulat was an innovation consulting manager at the firm. In this capacity, Bulat proactively worked with a variety of Deloitte’s business verticals (Strategy Consulting, Risk Advisory, Tax&Legal) and regions (CIS, US, UK, EU) to allow new programs execution across the company. Prior to Deloitte, he consulted startups on the performance systems to unlock their growth.
Outside of work, Bulat undertakes a number of Pro Bono activities, including mentoring startups through R3 Venture Development where he shares his knowledge, experience and network to facilitate growth.
We couldn’t be happier having Bulat with us along this incredible journey which we’ve been on since the TotemFi project was initially devised, and we’re very much looking forward to seeing the amazing things he’ll deliver — we have no doubt that he will play a leading role in taking TotemFi to the next level, and growing us into one of the industry’s leading DeFi protocols — LFG!
