Ledger Hires LVMH Exec to Boost Consumer Business


Ledger, a cryptocurrency hardware wallet maker has employed the services of luxury brand executive and former LVMH digital lead, Ian Rogers to help build a better customer experience for its various products and services.

As reported by the Financial Times on Monday, former LVMH digital lead Ian Rogers has joined the French startup, Ledger as its chief experience officer and will lead its mission to expand consumer business and increasing cryptocurrency adoption.

LVMH is a French group specializing in luxury goods and boasting some of the world’s biggest retail names as subsidiaries. Rogers was responsible for increasing the digital presence of globally known brands, including Louis Vuitton, Givenchy, Christian Dior, Bulgari and TAG Heuer.

“When I look at cryptocurrency, privacy and security, I have a similar feeling I did about music in the early 2000s at the beginning of the streaming era,” Rogers told the FT.

Prior to his work at LVMH, Rogers spent time at Apple where he helped the tech giant implement and roll out its music streaming service.

While Rogers has officially left the luxury conglomerate, he said he would remain as an adviser on its digital initiatives and operate an annual competition for luxury and fashion known as the LVMH Innovation Award.
