Blockchain property technology business Coadjute has appointed Dan Salmons (pictured), former director of innovation at Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), as CEO. 

As CEO, Salmons will accelerate, launch and scale Coadjute’s property network, and will take overall responsibility for the leadership of the business, with a focus on business strategy, investor and partner relations and the development of its blockchain platform.

Coadjute’s blockchain platform is an open network which connects the businesses that take part in property transactions, enabling them to share messages and documents, and synchronise events and alerts securely.

Before joining Coadjute, Salmons was director of innovation for home buying and ownership at RBS, where he led the bank’s multi-million pound investment in mortgage APIs, projects to digitise and automate broker and customer experiences, and initiatives in AI and blockchain.

Prior to RBS, Salmons was managing director for mobile and online and PayPoint, global innovations director at Barclaycard, European VP of strategy at Capital One, and CEO, Europe, at WhatIf Innovation.

Salmons’ appointment follows the announcement that Rees Watkins, formerly of Smartr365, joined Coadjute as CTO, while John Reynolds, founder and interim COO became COO.

Salmons said: “The potential of Coadjute’s blockchain technology in the housing market is tremendous.

“Coadjute has a vision of a property market where all the parties involved – lenders, brokers, estate agents, conveyancers and many others – can work together truly seamlessly.

“In these difficult times, it’s inspiring to become part of a company which is at the forefront of helping revitalise and strengthen the housing market through the application of the best technology.”
