Said Kirk in a statement: “Our investors know that we take both our investment models and investor relations immensely seriously. Both Genia and Matthew have contributed significantly to these respective functions, as well as the overall development of Cantab. As a result we are truly pleased they have accepted our offer to join the partnership”
