Klaytn's ex-Global Head joins Immutable to drive business growth in Asia

Leading Web3 gaming firm Immutable has appointed David Shin as the new Head of Business Development for Asia-Pacific (APAC), in addition to serving as interim Head for the EMEA (Europe, the Middle East, and Africa) region. 

Prior to this, Shin was the Head of Global Adoption at Klaytn, where he spearheaded the adoption of the Klaytn blockchain globally. He was also responsible for switching Klaytn's growth strategy to focus on gaming and the metaverse. 

"Today, Asia is one of the most active regions when it comes to the adoption of web3 and blockchain technologies in general, so having spent years and years working in these markets, it is extremely exciting for me to join Immutable - a leader in web3 gaming that constantly strives to be at the forefront of innovation and inclusion," said Shin. 

In his new role, Shin will grow Immutable's presence and focus on onboarding game studios and developers across APAC and EMEA. As an active community builder who has helped set up numerous non-profit organizations in Asia, he will also ensure proper engagement with local and regional officials regarding crypto and blockchain technology.

With more than 15 years of experience in the banking industry, Shin is also a seasoned banker, with his last role being at TD Bank as its Asia Head of Global Equity Derivatives and Repo Sales. 

He later joined Bitcoin.com as its Head of Exchange in 2019, followed by a role as a founding member and Head of TZ APAC, a Singapore-based team focusing on Tezos blockchain adoption across the APAC region. 

Given his vast expertise in Asian markets, Shin is deemed to be the perfect candidate to drive Immutable's expansion in Asia. After all, it is one of the regions that has witnessed rapid blockchain gaming adoption. 

"David's extensive experience in the sector and his deep understanding of the region have made him the perfect candidate to lead Immutable's business development efforts in the APAC and EMEA regions. We are proud to welcome him to the ever-growing Immutable team," said Andrew Sorokovsky, VP of Global Business Development at ImmutableX.
