CTO, Meeco

Jo Vercammen

Jo Vercammen is the CTO of Meeco; a personal data & distributed ledger platform that enables people to securely exchange data via the API-of-Me with the people and organisations they trust.

In 2017, Jo co-founded Juru; a Belgium based start-up developing an identity platform using blockchain technology. The focus was to improve the administrative and privacy aspects of modern digital life, through reducing the friction of onboarding to new products and services. Jo successfully led the team to deliver a range of innovative solutions for Digipolis and the City of Antwerp. Projects included GDPR management and enabling young people to develop a competency profile to document their extra-curricular achievements.

In addition to his role as Juru co-founder and managing director, Jo was a senior researcher and lecturer on Blockchain at Howest University College for Applied Science. He was approached to teach based on his early Bitcoin experience, having launched the first Bitcoin exchange in Belgium in 2013.

This expertise rapidly evolved to providing professional services to companies starting blockchain and bitcoin projects. His software engineering and product development experience resulted in the provision of technical services and business support on product roadmap for open platform architecture, blockchain, API management and microservices.

From October 2019 Jo together with his Juru technical co-founder and development team joined Meeco. As CTO he is supporting Meeco’s global growth and expansion through the development and delivery of Meeco’s product portfolio including FinTech and RegTech solutions for Open Banking, PSD2 and GDPR.

Jo is an active member in the identity and blockchain community, a contributor to a range of standards and identity working groups including the Decentralised Identity (DIF) and Hyperledger Foundations, along with speaking globally at FinTech and Identity events.
