Investment startup Hisa has appointed Eric Jackson as its new CEO, effective immediately. Jackson will be replacing Erick Asuma, who has stepped down from the role after just two years.
In a statement, Asuma said he was stepping down to “pursue other opportunities.” He added that he was “proud of what we have accomplished at Hisa” and that he was “confident that Eric is the right person to lead the company into its next phase of growth.”
“As I step down from my role as CEO, I am confident that Hisa will continue its path to success under the guidance of Eric Jackson. His expertise and vision align perfectly with the company’s goals, and I do not doubt that Hisa’s future is bright.” He added.
Asuma co-founded Hisa in 2020 and helped to grow the company to over 25,000 registered investors and $2 million in transactions. Talking to Techcabal Asuma strongly believes that a change in leadership was necessary to ensure Hisa’s continued success, while this is not conclusive, it may suggest a conflict in the direction the investment startup is heading between the co-founders.
“I am honored to continue to drive the Hisa mission as its new CEO and build upon the solid foundation established by Erick Asuma,” Eric Jackson said on his appointment.
“Hisa is at the forefront of revolutionizing investment solutions, and I am thrilled to guide the company in its next phase of growth. Together, we will further enhance our technological capabilities, expand our market presence, and continue delivering exceptional value to our clients.” He added.
The new CEO says a new range of investment products are already in the works and within the next month, Hisa will be introducing an array of options including savings accounts, money market funds, and even the ability to trade leveraged products. “These additions will provide our customers with greater flexibility and opportunities for growth in their investment portfolios,” he added.
