A conversation with Seaquake Crypto CEO Andrew Katz
What qualities made Co-founder and CEO of Seaquake, Andrew Katz successful as a top executive, innovator and cutting-edge entrepreneur?
According to Katz, its sustained and remarkable success over the years is due to three key factors:
- Relentless driving.
- The ability to adapt and pivot at any time.
- An instinct to think outside the box and take on new challenges from a unique perspective.
Katz’s former colleagues and associates are continually impressed with his incredible attention to detail and near-instant understanding of client needs. Katz never seems to lose sight of his main objective and he is always determined to exceed expectations at every opportunity.
As Seaquake’s leader, Katz oversees “a team of creative minds dedicated to stabilizing the digital asset market by using proven technologies to modernize fragmented infrastructure and other in-market efficiencies.” To achieve this, Katz and the Seaquake team use Orbis, the platform’s core engine, to increase liquidity, stability, and trade volume from partners around the world.
Although Katz spends much of his time buried in work, he genuinely appreciates Seaquake’s innovative work culture. He’s also thrilled to be part of a company working to solve problems and propel an entire industry into the future.
Before establishing Seaquake alongside CTO Dylan Knight, Katz worked in hedge funds, banking and private banking. Katz has over 15 years of experience in finance and his resume includes notable roles at EFG Bank, Zooz Capital, LeGarde Capital and UBS.
Katz received her Bachelor of Arts in Economics from the University of Colorado at Boulder. He then attended Harvard, earning his master’s degree in finance.
In a recent interview, Andrew Katz gave insight into how he manages a strong work-life balance while maintaining a consistently high level of productivity. He also offered a deeper look at what the future holds for Seaquake and the digital asset industry.
Describe what an average day at Seaquake looks like and how you stay so productive.
Our company uses a remote work environment that is heavily dependent on consistent and constant communication. Dylan, our CTO, spends a lot of his time supporting the Seaquake technical team with help and ideas. At the same time, I lead our leadership team, ensuring everyone is focused on achieving the same goal.
An average day includes regular strategy sessions and routine check-ins with our team. This helps ensure that we are on the right track. We communicate regularly with investors and clients to ensure that everything is aligned with our current roadmap.
How do you prioritize tasks and ensure things stay on track?
We stay organized using a variety of analysis and strategizing with my team. It is imperative to stay organized, so as not to fall behind because we are always doing a lot of things at the same time. We always tackle several projects and tasks at once; collaboration tools, such as google docs, help get things done in the smoothest and most efficient way possible.
How do you strike a balance between the personal and the professional? What do you do in your free time?
Staying organized is key to maintaining a good work-life balance. When things are properly planned, tracked, and aligned with your purpose, you are in a better position to dedicate personal and professional time.
When it comes to my free time, I like to stay physically active. It’s what keeps my mind clear and energized. I also like to travel whenever the opportunity arises.
In your experience, what is the best way to bring ideas to life?
I’ve always found that the best way to bring new ideas to life is through conversation and the desire and urge to operate outside of your comfort zone.
At Seaquake, our team is always on the lookout for knowledge, no matter how we get it or where it happens. We continue our knowledge in various ways, whether through new libraries, new tools, or simply by creating something of our own. We are always ready and willing to try new things and learn, no matter the source.
Can you name a strategy that has been key to growing your business?
We develop the majority of the technology we use in-house, such as our technology stack which is built so that each system is both modular and multi-purpose, to allow us to create, test and implement strategies in minutes. Which meant we could pivot into multiple lines of business i.e. the business was profitable and self-sustaining after about 10 months and we have only skyrocketed since then adding more lines of business. ‘activity.
What does Seaquake have in store for the future?
As we bring all of our systems online, we expect Seaquake to be able to deliver a complete crypto ecosystem from soup to nut. Platforms like ours are expected to help drive institutional and overall market growth in the months and years to come.
