Justin Roberts appointed as chief commercial officer for Crypta Labs

Quantum security startup Crypta Labs has appointed Justin Roberts as chief commercial officer (CCO) to drive growth in the next phase of its investment

Justin, who joined the company recently, has extensive experience in the corporate finance field working in both the US and European markets. His extensive hands on experience working with startup companies has been based on strategic advisory and capital raising of HNW families with results. His addition to Crypta Labs will provide support in pursuing commercial opportunities and advise on the long-term strategic direction of the business.

Crypta Labs is developing Quantum Random Number Generator (RNG) technology. Random number generators are used in all connected devices to establish the secure encryption keys used to protect the communication.

Justin states: "I am very excited to have joined Crypta Labs. Having been previously involved in securing the initial seed financing for the business and providing strategic advice over the last three years, the decision to join Crypta Labs is underpinned by the nascent market opportunity that exists to provide portable hardware security to the expanding market for IoT devices, most importantly in the “fatality market”, where hacks can kill and potential damage to critical infrastructure could be pervasive. Crypta Labs technology stands to be one of the first companies to commercialise quantum technologies and I look forward to the journey with Joe and the rest of the team”.

Joe HQ Luong commented: “Crypta Labs is delighted with the appointment of Justin as CCO. I have known Justin on a personal capacity for many years and I am particularly excited to have Justin on board to help Crypta Labs continue to grow the company at this critical time.”
