ZRG expands capabilities with formation of Blockchain Practice

Rochelle Park-based ZRG Partners announced it has formed a Blockchain Practice.

The practice, ZRG said, will help financial services, fintech, health care and blockchain-centric industries capitalize in the distributed ledger/blockchain space.

It will be led by Managing Director Rahul Kapur. Kapur, who has more than 27 years of consulting and executive search experience, previously worked at PwC, Deloitte, Capgemini and MasterCard Advisors.

“Blockchain continues to grow rapidly as a focus area for our clients. To capitalize effectively on the potential of distributed ledgers, our clients require a unique type of leader with a strong entrepreneurial capability, combined with a deep understanding of the underlying technology, operations and regulatory issues that blockchain presents. Formalizing our Blockchain Practice will enhance our ability to help financial institutions, Fintech firms and investment firms seeking to grow and expand their portfolios with new, differentiating banking, lending and payments offerings. We are seeing other industries, such as health care and consumer goods, also seeking talent who can create value from blockchain technology. With an industry expert like Rahul leading our offering in Blockchain, we will be able to continue to expand our service offering to this sector with a senior leader who has a vast knowledge and network in the blockchain space,” Larry Hartmann, CEO of ZRG said.

“This is an area where clients are seeking help. Whether it be an individual to fill a specific need, a team of innovators to jump start an initiative, or a blockchain idea for incubation, our clients are all seeking the most innovative and knowledgeable talent in the space. At the same time, they seek talent that seamlessly combine expertise in distributed ledger technology with the ability to build and grow businesses in a way that maximizes return on investment. I am excited to lead ZRG’s efforts across industries to help our clients sort through this next wave of transformative technology,” Kapur said.
