Press Release, April 14, 2014, Geneva: Pavlo Protopapa, the founder and chairman of Spacecode Technologies, has been appointed its CEO. Formerly the CFO of Steinmetz Diamonds, Protopapa was also Managing Director of Onyx Financial Advisors in Geneva and has been a board member of The Diamond Fund, Sotheby’s Diamonds Holdings, and Socure Inc., a SaaS-based internet security company that analyses social and identify data for fraud prevention.
Commenting on his appointment, Protopapa said that Spacecode’s aim was to become the industry standard in connecting the diamond and jewelry supply chain and in bringing diamonds into the digital age. “It’s exciting to be part of an age where we are essentially creating intelligent objects and understanding what they do. Our challenge is to develop useful, workable solutions that take inventory management to a higher level. Inventory is the heart of every organization ‒ our automated systems eliminate the pain and frustration caused by inefficient manual procedures and replace them with intelligent asset management.”
