“John’s international marketing expertise with financial services and his deep understanding of our products will be a great combination for Zenus.” commented Mushegh Tovmasyan, Chairman and Founder of Zenus Bank. “I have had the pleasure to work with John in the past and thrilled for him to be joining our executive team to lead the Bank’s much anticipated launch. The timing could not be any better.”
