Announcing Our New Global Group Head


  • Former Head of Global Group David Shin has stepped down from his role at Klaytn
  • Chief Investment Officer Vince Kim to take the reins

Korea’s premier blockchain project Klaytn announced that, as of 1 Dec 2022, David Shin, Head of Klaytn’s Global Group, has stepped down from his role, in an amicable move after 1.5 years with the Klaytn project. Vince Kim, Chief Investment Officer, will take the reins as the new Global Group head. 

Vince said, “With his experience and dedication, David has been instrumental in expanding Klaytn’s international footprint. We are grateful to his many contributions over the past 1.5 years, and we wish him only the best for his future endeavors.”

Since joining the Klaytn project in 2021, David assembled a high-performing team to build the foundations of Klaytn’s global expansion strategy. Leading with a vision that Web3 mass adoption would come from building experiences that retail users would enjoy, he pivoted Klaytn’s growth strategy to focus on gaming and the metaverse.

David said, “It’s been an honor to lead Klaytn’s globalization journey over the past 1.5 years, and I’m glad to see Klaytn being viewed as a global player in the Layer 1 landscape. Klaytn holds a special place in my heart and I’m happy to continue contributing to the growth of Klaytn’s ecosystem.”
